Amazon has bought the rights to Cinderella directed by Kay Cannon from Sony Pictures to premiere the musical on its streaming platform.
Kay Cannon is the writer and director behind a new film Cinderella ( Cinderella ) in real action that originally was to be launched in theaters in July this year but has been seeing delayed its release date until finally, Amazon Studios has managed to close a deal with Sony Pictures to get the rights to the film and release the film also on its streaming platform, Amazon Prime, although Sony continues to maintain the rights to the film in China.
Cinderella will be very far from the updated classic that we saw from Disney in 2015 because, although we are still facing a musical, this time the story will revolve around an ambitious young woman who has very big dreams that she will try to make come true.
The film will also mark the debut of singer and songwriter Camila Cabello as the protagonist of the film in which it will incorporate original songs and other contemporary pop artists. She is accompanied in the cast by Idina Menzel, Billy Porter, Nick Galitzine, Minnie Driver, Pierce Brosnan, and James Corden who, although he is a producer, also has a role in the plot, unlike Leo Pearlman, Jonathan Kadin, and Shannon McIntosh, the producers remaining.
A director Kay Cannon’s’ve had a producer on the film series Pitch Perfect ( The Pick ), which were also musical, in the comedy Blockers ( #Sexpact ) (2018), which was his first film as a director, and also in the Netflix series Girlboss (2017), of which she was the creator, producer, and screenwriter.
There is still no release date defined for the live-action of Cinderella nor has any trailer been seen, but we do know that despite everything, Amazon’s plans are for it to arrive throughout 2021, so it will have to be slopes of the platform.
