Helena Bonham-Carter is being linked to a role in the Cinderella movie

Helena Bonham Carter will apparently play the fairy godmother in the new Cinderella movie.

The King's Speech actress has joined the cast of Disney's live action version of the classic fairytale, according to The Wrap.

She joins Downton Abbey actress Lily James, who has nabbed the lead role, and Cate Blanchett, who is playing the wicked stepmother.

Other cast members include Richard Madden as the prince and Holliday Grainger as a wicked stepsister. Downton's Sophie McShera is tipped for the part of the other stepsister.

Cinderella will be directed by Kenneth Branagh, who is expected to start shooting in the autumn.
