SUNDAY TIMES WEB DESK: Singer Camila Cabello is set to star in writer-director Kay Cannons’ new version of Cinderella. Cabello will be involved in the music for the project, which grew out of an original idea from actor James Corden.

The film will be produced by Corden and Leo Pearlman through their Fulwell73 banner, as per an international report. The new Cinderella will be a music-oriented version of the traditional tale of the orphaned girl with an evil stepmother.

The best-known Cinderella movies include Disney’s animated drama, released in 1950, and two live-action remakes, a 1997 version starring Brandy and Whitney Houston, and a 2015 film with Lily James.
