Mark Romanek's Dark Vision Leads To His Exit From Disney's CINDERELLA Remake

It seemed as if production on the new Cinderella from Disney was going well, with a star in the form of Cate Blanchett and One Hour Photo's Mark Romanek attached to direct. However, he has now dropped out due to creative differences.

Deadline reports that director Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) and Disney have parted ways on the remake of Cinderella. Cate Blanchett is attached to star, and while the studio already has a script from Chris Weitz and Aleen Brosh McKenna, it turns out that Romanek's vision is just to dark for the House of Mouse (this isn't the first time this has happened; he also dropped out of The Wolfman due to similar creative issues). The site were able to get the following statement from the studio. "The Walt Disney Studios and Mark Romanek have parted ways on Disney’s Cinderella project. We are committed to moving the project forward and have begun the search for a new director. The team here at Disney respects Mark as both a director and a friend, and we hope to find something to work on together in the future." Stay tuned for further details!
