Saoirse Ronan, Alicia Vikander And Gabriella Wilde In The Running For CINDERELLA

Variety reports on young actresses in the running for the title role in Mark Romanek's (Never Let Me Go) Cinderella from Disney. They include Irish actress Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, Byzantium, Lovely Bones, Hanna, The Host), Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina, A Royal Affair, The Seventh Son) and British actress Gabriella Wilde (Three Musketeers, Carrie). Ronan's Hanna co-star Cate Blanchett is in talks for the villain role of the evil stepmother.

Saoirse had been attached for Disney's Snow White film The Order of The Seven which was axed when Snow White And The Hunstman turned out to be successful. Oddly enough, Alicia had been in the mix for the Snow White role in Huntsman which ultimately went to Kristen Stewart. Wilde had been linked for testing for the female lead in Transformers 4, playing the daughter of Mark Wahlberg's character.
