Emma Watson Turns Down Cinderella Role 0

A few weeks ago, there were rumors that Disney was considering Emma Watson as the most likely actress to portray Cinderella in the potential reboot of the movie from director Kenneth Branagh. Unfortunately for fans of the actress, Variety’s Marc Graser has reported that the star has declined the opportunity to play the Disney princess, which also puts the studio back to square one.

While Watson was the priority for the studio after Branagh took over the project from Mark Romanek, she wasn’t the only one being considered so Disney does have another batch of names to pore through. Other names that were shortlisted include Saoirse Ronan, Gabriella Wilde and Alicia Vikander, so don’t be surprised if one of them eventually snags the role (we’re thinking Saoirse Ronan is currently the best choice, as she’s coming off fresh from a high profile project).
