Cinderella might have just found its fairy godmother. According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources are saying that Emmy winner Billy Porter is set to play the iconic character for Sony’s upcoming movie musical.

If this is true, then Porter will join Camila Cabello, who is set to star as the titular character. Kay Cannon is set to direct.

Porter is not only an Emmy winner, but a Tony winner as well. Porter’s popularity would make him a draw for the Cinderella movie. Considering Disney is turning all of its former animated properties into live-action movies, it isn’t surprising that Cinderella is being done albeit under Sony. What do you think about Porter being cast as the well-known Godmother role in Cinderella?
