The Cinderella remake, starring Camila Cabello, has a new release date.
The film was originally scheduled to release next month, but Sony Picture Studios have pushed it back to July 16 amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The studio announced a handful of other movies that are also being pushed back, including Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway and the Jared Leto-led Morbius, amidst the uncertainty of when theaters will safely reopen worldwide.
Sony also confirmed that it has pushed the Uncharted film back to 2022. The film, based on the video game adaptation, stars Tom Holland as Nathan Drake.
Another notable release that was pushed back is MGM’s James Bond Film: No Time To Die. Originally scheduled for release last November, the film was then pushed back to April 2021, and now has been pushed back further, almost an entire calendar year, to October.
Cinderella stars Camila Cabello in the title role and is directed by Kay Cannon, known for writing Pitch Perfect and directing the comedy film, Blockers. Other notable cast members include Idina Menzel as the wicked stepmother, Billy Porter as the fairy godmother, Pierce Brosnan as the King, James Corden one of the footmen/mice (who also produces the film) and Missy Elliot as the town crier.
The movie is a reimagining of the classic tale with plenty of music and comedy to boot. It was shot over a series of months in and around London last year with extensive safety protocols in place during the pandemic. Filming began in February, was paused for six months, and wrapped last October. Cabello posted a series of tweets on the last day of filming and told her fans that she was excited for them to be able to see the film upon its release.
We’re looking forward to seeing the reimagination of this classic film when it is finally released!
