Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard is reportedly about to join the cast of Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella.

Should Skarsgard sign on the dotted line he will be joining Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter as the king’s advisor in the ambitious adaptation of the fairytale, according to the Hollywood reporter.

Lily James has been cast as Cinderella while Game of Thrones star Richard Madden will play her prince in the film to be directed by Branagh.

Blanchett will portray the wicked stepmother, Bonham Carter the fairy godmother, and Downton Abbey star Sophie McShera and Holliday Grainger will play the stepsisters.
