Harry Potter star Emma Watson was linked to live-action fairy tale remakes: Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella. Playing both Belle and Cinderella though is too much for any girl, so Watson has bowed out of one project. Variety’s Marc Graser tweeted, “Emma Watson has decided NOT to star in Disney’s CINDERELLA.” Graser did not explain Watson’s reasoning, but did tweet in reply, “Details to come.” So stay tuned.

Disney’s original shortlist included: Saoirse Ronan (Hanna), Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers) Alicia Vikander (A Royal Affair). Cate Blanchett is expected to play the evil stepmother. Kenneth Branagh (Thor) will direct. The studio hopes to get Cinderella out for a 2014 release.
