Billy Porter In Talks To Play Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother In New Cinderella Film

A new Cinderella film is being cheffed up by #JamesCorden, and #BillyPorter is one of the names that has been added to the cast.

Cinderella, who is set to be played by #CamilaCabello, won’t be late to the ball this time around because she will be styled by Emmy-winner Billy Porter, who has been cast to play the Fairy Godmother. This will be Cabello’s debut as an actress and Popsugar reports the songstress will be heavily involved with the music of the film.

Along with Porter is #IdinaMenzel who will star as Cinderella’s evil step-mother Lady Tremaine. There aren’t many details on the film, but the story is being described as “a modern reimagining of the classic fairy tale.” Corden will be producing the feature alongside his Fulwell 73 partner Leo Pearlman. Kay Cannon will act as a writer-director.

Cabello said she feels her part in the film was a part of God’s work. “It was one of those things that felt like God handcrafted it for me and was, like, ‘Here you go.’” Cabello told Variety of taking on the movie. “I just couldn’t say no. It’s honestly a dream for me. And also a little bit terrifying.”
