According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brosnan will play the king, father to Galitzine's Robert.

To be directed by Kay Cannon, the film is billed as "a modern reimagining" of the traditional story, with "a musical bent thrown in for good measure". Cabello will also be involved in the music of the film. Popular TV host-actor James Corden will produce the project along with Leo Pearlman through their banner Fulwell73.

Cinderella is expected to hit cinemas on 5 February, 2021.

Brosnan will also be seen in Will Ferrell's Netflix comedy Eurovision alongside Demi Lovato, Rachel McAdams, and Dan Stevens. The comedy-drama is inspired by the real-life European singing contest of the same name.
