Saorsie Ronan, Gabriella Wilde, and Alicia Vikander Up for Live-Action ‘Cinderella’ Movie

/Film is reporting that Saoirse Ronan (The Host), Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina) and Gabriella Wilde (Carrie) are the three stars left in the running to star in Mark Romanek’s live-action adaptation of Cinderella, which will be released by Disney.

All three are rumored to test for the leading role, though there’s no word on whether or not they’ll be auditioning with Cate Blanchett, who has already been cast as the evil stepmother.

Here’s the background on each actress:

Ronan has the highest profile of the three within the U.S., thanks to her work on Atonement, The Lovely Bones, and Hanna — the latter of which also starred Blanchett. She’ll next appear in Andrew Niccol’s Stephenie Meyer adaptation The Host. The downside for Ronan is that she’s so in-demand, she may have trouble fitting Cinderella into her schedule. She recently landed the female lead in Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, and is attached to lead role in Working Title’s Mary Queen of Scots.

Swedish actress Vikander isn’t as well known as Ronan, but she’s on her way up. She’s currently starring in Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina, and will star opposite Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, and Ben Barnes in The Seventh Son.

The British-born Wilde was seen last year in The Three Musketeers, and has just wrapped a key role in Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie remake.
