Richard Madden Is A Prince
For Cinderella

08 May 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

He’s had a hard time of it being the King of the North on Game Of Thrones, so perhaps Robb Stark – aka as actor Richard Madden – will have a better time of it as a prince. Kenneth Branagh and Disney certainly think so, as he’ll play the Prince in the new, live-action Cinderella.

Downton Abbey’s Lily James is already aboard as the titular girl who becomes a princess for a night, and Cate Blanchett has been attached for a while to play her wicked stepmother.

We don’t yet know what tweaks the script (currently credited to Aline Brosh McKenna and Chris Weitz) will make to the original fairy tale story, but we do know the film has already lost one director in Mark Romanek, who departed over creative differences. Still, Branagh definitely has the chops to bring this one in with style.

Madden has previously appeared in Complicity and Chatroom and has A Promise and Long Nights Short Mornings lined up when he’s not running around Westeros. Cinderella should kick off shooting in the autumn for a 2014 release.
