The former James Bond actor is paired with Camila Cabello in writer-director Kay Cannon’s upcoming film
Hollywood star Pierce Brosnan will play the king, opposite singer Camila Cabello, in writer-director Kay Cannon's new telling of Cinderella for Sony Pictures.
Billy Porter, Idina Menzel, and Nicholas Galitzine are also confirmed to star in the film, which will be released in theatres on February 5, 2021, according to reports.
Cabello, a multi-platinum selling and Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, will be integrally involved in the music. Cinderella marks her acting debut.
The film is a musical comedy reimagination of the traditional Cinderella story in which the heroine is an ambitious young woman whose dreams are bigger than the world will allow.
The movie is being produced by James Corden and Leo Pearlman through their Fulwell73 banner.
Based on the fairy tale Cendrillon by Charles Perrault, the story of a poor young orphan woman and her fairy godmother was the basis for Disney's 1950 animated drama Cinderella. It also spawned two live-action remakes: 1997's iteration starring Brandy and Whitney Houston and Kenneth Branagh's 2015 version with Lily James.
