Deadline reports that Amazon Studios is closing a deal to acquire worldwide rights to the Cinderella film remake from Sony Pictures. It was previously reported that the movie would premiere on July 16, now the film is aiming to be released later this year.
The new modern-day Cinderella movie musical, led by three-time Grammy nominee Camila Cabello, features a script adapted by Emmy nominee Kay Cannon (Blockers), who also directs. Details about plot changes and music are being kept under wraps.
