Camila Cabello’s world will never be the same.
The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter is set to make her feature acting debut, teaming with Kay Cannon, the director of Blockers, for a new telling of the classic fairy tale Cinderella.
Cabello will not only star in the project, set up at Sony’s Columbia label, but also will be integrally involved in the music for the film.
The idea for the new take on Cinderella grew from an original idea from James Corden, the late-night talk show host who has made major musical inroads thanks to his popular “Carpool Karaoke” segments.
Corden is also producing the feature project with Leo Pearlman, his partner at Fulwell 73, the production banner that has found success with documentaries such as The Class of ’92, the BAFTA-nominated Bros: After the Screaming Stops and Karaoke. Valence Media is an investor in Fulwell 73, and is also the parent company of The Hollywood Reporter.
Plot details are being kept in a shoebox, but the story is described as a modern reimagining of the traditional tale of the orphaned girl with an evil stepmother, with a musical bent thrown in for good measure.
