Last week, Disney found its live action Cinderella in the form of Downton Abbey’s Lily James. Now she’s got her prince, as THR reports Game of Thrones star Richard Madden has joined the cast.
The studio announced, “Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) has been cast as the Prince in Disney’s upcoming live-action Cinderella. As previously announced, the film is being directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh, stars Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother and features Lily James in the title role.”
Richard Madden is best known for playing Robb Stark in Game of Thrones. He also stars in director Patrice Leconte’s upcoming World War II drama A Promise, alongside Rebecca Hall and Alan Rickman.
Aline Brosh McKenna and Chris Weitz wrote the screenplay for Cinderella, although it’s not known if it will be a traditional take on the tale or something more revisionist.
