Cate Blanchett: Disney is “re-imagining” one of the studio’s most famous projects: Cinderella. Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass) wrote the script for the live-action feature, Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) is set to direct, and Cate Blanchett is in talks to play the evil stepmother. Little is known about how the well-known story will be “reimagined,” though we should get some idea from who is ultimately cast as the title character. [The Wrap]

Joe Carnahan: Director Joe Carnahan’s career got a big boost from the dark action thriller The Grey early this year, and he has multiple projects in development. The latest is Undying Love, based on a graphic novel by Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman, which follows a former solider who falls for a beguiling vampire and then must take on the Hong Kong underworld. If all goes as planned, Carnahan will rewrite the script and direct. [Deadline]
