Put The Glass Slippers Away! Emma Watson 'Turns Down Cinderella Role'

12 March 2013

Emma Watson has dashed moviegoers fairytale dreams by reportedly turning down a starring role in a new Disney adaptation of Cinderella.

Last week it was reported that the Harry Potter star would be taking the lead role in Kenneth Branagh's film based on Chris Weitz’s screenplay.

Today though it appears Branagh will be looking for a new leading lady as the star has reportedly said no to the big screen role. Variety writer Marc Graser announced the news on his Twitter feed, writing: "Emma Watson has decided NOT to star in Disney's CINDERELLA. Details to come."

It is thought that Emma might still be taking on a fairytale role, as sources suggest she could have chosen instead to star in Beauty And The Beast, which she was also linked to.
