Will Emma Watson be the new Cinderella?

Deirdre still can't believe SheKnows pays her to do what she loves. She began telling stories before she could even write. Once someone gave her a pen, there was no prying it away; so a degree in journalism was the only thing that made s...

If the glass slipper fits...

Oh, please let the slipper fit!

While it's not yet confirmed, it sounds like Harry Potter's little Hermione Granger star Emma Watson might be on board to play Cinderella in the upcoming live-action version of every little girl's favorite fairy tale! They're still in the "talking" phase, but it seems like it ought to work.

Emma has shown interest in playing Cinderella before. In 2009, she was on board to play Ella when shock rocker Marilyn Manson was writing a musical that would star the glass slipper model. That fell through, but this might be a real possibility.

The movie is just another in the growing line of live-action fairy tale-esque remakes that Disney has been producing. When it saw such great success with the Burton/Depp version of Alice in Wonderland, Disney knew it was onto something. Now Sam Raimi's Oz the Great and Powerful is set to see that same success.

There is also the upcoming Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie in the title role, which is the tale of Sleeping Beauty told from the villain's point of view. An Emma Watson-starring-Cinderella movie is bound to flourish in the theaters, especially when they've already nailed down Cate Blanchett to play the role of her evil stepmother.

She's also slated to star in the upcoming drama Your Voice in My Head.

How she'll ever manage to find time to play Cinderella is beyond us, but we're still hoping it happens!
