Billy Porter joins cast of new Cinderella movie alongside Camila Cabello

Because who among us doesn’t need another live action remake in their lives?

Earlier this year, it was announced that another live action remake of Cinderella was on the cards.

Following on from Kenneth Brannagh’s 2015 attempt of the same name, the film would (yet again) tell the fairytale story of the poor woman whose life is all but turned around when she meets a lovely man at the stroke of midnight.

One for the ages, clearly.

The new movie will star none other than Camila Cabello as Cinderella – and now Billy Porter has even joined the cast.

… As the fairy godmother, nonetheless.

Star-studded all round.

E! News reports that Porter confirmed the news at the New Yorker Festival over the weekend.

Speaking on their Instagram Stories, he said: “I have a couple movies that I’m working on. I’m gonna be playing the fairy godmother in the new Cinderella movie with Camila Cabello.”

Yep, definitely confirmed it, so.

The live-action remake of the Disney film is being directed by James Cordon and will feature Cabello in her acting debut.

Described as a “modern re-imagining of the classic fairytale,” the film will also be aided by Blockers director Kay Cannon and Leo Pearlman, co-partner of Cordon’s production company, Fulwell73.

Right now, Cabello and Porter are the only actors attached to the project – but if their interest is anything to go by, it looks like Cinderella could end up having quite the decent cast indeed.
