Camila Cabello will make her feature acting debut in a reimagining of “Cinderella,” which James Corden will be producing.
Kay Cannon (“Blockers”) will write direct the new take of the classic fairytale for Sony’s Columbia label. Corden came up with the original idea. Leo Pearlman will also produce with Corden through their Fulwell 73 banner.
Cabello will also be involved with original music for the film.
Sony is putting the project on the fast-track for production. Details on the storyline are being kept under wraps.
Cabello was part of the girl group Fifth Harmony before her solo career and had a massive hit with her single “Havana,” which became Spotify’s most-streamed song ever by a female solo artist. She is represented by WME and Roger Gold.
Cannon made her directorial debut with “Blockers,” which starred John Cena, Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz. Cannon also wrote the “Pitch Perfect” franchise and has other credits including “30 Rock” and “New Girl.” She is represented by WME and Ken Richman.
