Robb Stark to be Prince Charming

Posted: May 9, 2013 in Movies

Richard Madden, most notably known here in the U.S. for his role as Robb Stark in the HBO hit medieval political drama Game of Thrones, has officially been signed on by Disney to star in the upcoming live-action Cinderella film.  Madden will star opposite Lily James (Downton Abbey) as the film’s Prince Charming.

Not to be too spoilerific, but if you’ve read the A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels, then you know Madden’s run on HBO’s hit show will be coming to an end.  There fore it makes sense that Madden would be using his recently newfound fame from HBO to bigger and better things.

The live-action Cinderella film – working title of “Cinderella” – does not have a release date as of right now but does have Kenneth Branagh (Thor, Hamlet) set to direct.  Branagh is an actor turned director who has a flair for period pieces.

I’ll keep you updated.
