I’m sad to report that it seems like there really are no more original ideas in Hollywood. Instead of telling you about a fresh new movie about some kind of fascinating story you’ve never heard of and are intrigued to learn the ending to (HA, like that’ll happen), I’m here to let you know that you can watch another goddamn Cinderella movie soon. And this one is starring Fifth Harmony‘s version of Ginger Spice–Camila Cabello.
The Hollywood Reporter says that another twist on Cinderella is headed our way and we can all blame James Corden. Prepare to see the mice turned chauffeurs abandon Cinderella’s ass after she whine sings out a Bruno Mars song during Carriage Karaoke. Apparently, James came up with an “original idea” for a new telling of Cinderella and simply had to make it. This leads me to believe that either James’ PR people or The Hollywood Reporter don’t know what the word “original” means. James will also produce the movie along with Leo Pearlman, his partner at production company Fulwell 73. There’s no real plot details other than it’s a “modern reimagining” so expect Cinderella to have an Instagram and Tinder account. Netflix and Chill and you lost your shoe? How relatable!
There will also be a musical element in the film, which explains Camila who has never acted before but has a long history of yodelling. You may know her most popular songs Havana and Never Be The Same, which are both Top 10 hits. It’s being reported that Camila will also be “integrally involved in the music for the film” so if her past hits are any indication of where this Cinderella is going: she’ll be doing a lot of salsa dancing and high-pitched screeching.
The film is being worked on by Kay Cannon, who directed female-centric comedy Blockers and worked on all of the Pitch Perfect comedies. She also got her start on 30 Rock.
The movie is also being fast-tracked for production, so you know it’s going to be good… at making money from the youth who enjoy Camila Cabello. Can’t wait for Camila to get a bunch of threatening messages from Lindsay Lohan who’s pissed she lost another Disney princess role to someone else.
