Cate Blanchett was announced as being in final negotiations for the role of the evil stepmother a few days ago, and now Variety report that three young international actresses are vying for the lead role in Mark Romamnek's Cinderella. Saoirse Roanan is definitely the most experienced, having starred in the likes of The Lovely Bones, Hanna and will also take the lead in the big-screen adaptation of The Host next year. Vikander has garnered acclaim for her performance in Anna Karenina, she's also in the Danish Oscar foreign language contender A Royal Affair and will appear in The Seventh Son with Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore next fall.

Chris Weitz (About a Boy) wrote the script, which will be produced by Simon Kinberg (Elysium). No word yet on when cameras will roll, and there has been no release date set.
