According to the Daily Mail, Cinderella stars Lily James and Richard Madden have been signed up by Kenneth Branagh to play star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet in the West End next year.

The production will play at the Garrick Theatre in the Spring of 2016 and reunites the pair who worked with Branagh on the new live-action Disney blockbuster, Cinderella.

The production will be launched at the Garrick in October and forms part of a season of three productions in the West End helmed by Branagh. The season will also include a production of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, which Branagh will direct before taking to the stage himself in a revival of John Osborne’s post-war drama The Entertainer, directed by Rob Ashford.

It looks like Fox’s reboot of “The Fantastic Four” is getting closer to finalizing its cast.

Sources tell Variety that Simon Kinberg has finished rewriting the script and that the studio plans to begin testing thesps for the roles of Reed Richards (aka Mister Fantastic) and Sue Storm (aka the Invisible Woman) by the end of the month.

Teller was asked Tuesday in an interview at Sundance if he would be playing Richards. He replied that, “Yeah that should be happening in the next few weeks,” making it seem like the actor was already on board. But sources say the actor was misunderstood and that he is testing but isn’t the frontrunner or officially attached. Other actors expected to test for the part include “Game of Thrones’” Kit Harington and Richard Madden.

Kate Mara and Saoirse Ronan are expected to test for Sue Storm. Michael B. Jordan is attached to play Johnny Storm, but he is expected to test with the actors to see which group has the best chemistry.

Josh Trank is on board to direct the pic with Kinberg, Matthew Vaughn and Gregory Goodman serving as producers.

“The Fantastic Four” is slated to bow June 19, 2015.

Richard Madden might be transitioning from playing the King of the North, Robb Stark, on “Game of Thrones” to playing Prince Charming in Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming live action “Cinderella” movie. That should make his onscreen “Game of Thrones” wife, Oona Chaplin, very happy indeed.

Film is reporting that Madden is one of the names Branagh is considering for the Prince Charming role. Cate Blanchett has been signed on to play Cinderella’s wicked stepmother in the live action Disney movie for over a year.

It’s the role of Cinderella that’s proved tricky for Branagh and Disney to cast. Initially Emma Watson had been offered the part, but when she declined it seems like Branagh decided to look at actresses who were less well-known. Bella Heathcote, Lily James and Margot Robbie are reportedly testing for the role this week, with the expectation that the part of Cinderella will go to one of them.

When Zap2it spoke to Chaplin on the “Game of Thrones” Season 3 premiere red carpet, she confirmed that Madden is in fact as dreamy in real life as he is in the hit HBO show. “I’m semi in love with him,” she admitted. “I think he already knows. It’s quite embarrassing. He’s like, ‘Get off me, woman.'”
