A Kenneth Branagh-helmed spin on Cinderella is in the heat of casting. Emma Watson has backed out of the role and three other actors are vying for it, but Cate Blanchett is already set to play the fairy tale's antagonist. The pick is spot-on, given Blanchett's loathsome turn as murderous spy slash evil queen in the subtly fairy tale-ish Hanna. Let's see if Cate can top Anjelica Huston in Ever After: A Cinderella Story though.
