Collider, via Variety, is reporting that Saoirse is one of the actresses who will do a screentest for Disney’s still untitled Cinderella Story:

Just after Cate Blanchett was reported as being in negotiations to play the evil step-mother in Disney’s Untitled Cinderella Story, we now have a trio of international actresses being eyed for the lead role. The contenders for the coveted glass slipper are the Irish-born Saoirse Ronan (Hanna), Britain’s Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers) and Swedish Alicia Vikander (A Royal Affair). Originally pitched by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada), Disney picked up the project for a substantial sum in 2010. Chris Weitz (About a Boy) wrote the script and Simon Kinberg (X-Men) will produce. Hit the jump for more.

Variety reports that Ronan, Wilde and Vikander are all scheduled to test for director Mark Romanek’s Untitled Cinderella Story. After Disney’s Alice in Wonderland has grossed over $1 billion worldwide, the studio was quick to set more of their fairy tale properties in motion. They weren’t the only ones, as Universal also has a Cinderella project in the works, as the property is now public domain.

    will? she already has some movies to make, but the way is wait

  2. Jacque Says:

    @ Jess: Since there’s three actresses being considered she DOES have to audition, although it’s probably just one or two days of reading sides. I don’t think there’s a rule that says “Saoirse Ronan must get every role available to her if it’s in her age range.” That’s special treatment that no actress deserves.
