Billy Porter May Play the Fairy Godmother in New 'Cinderella' Film

Friday October 11, 2019

Variety is reporting that "Pose" star Billy Porter is currently in talks to join a reimagining of the classic tale "Cinderella" for Sony, possibly for the role as the fairy godmother.

If the deal goes through, Porter will star alongside pop singer Camila Cabello, who is in the lead role.

News of Porter's next project comes not long after he won an Emmy for his work on the LGBTQ drama "Pose," becoming the first openly gay black man to win the award for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series.

Variety reports Cabello joined the project in April when it was announced Kay Cannon, who directed the 2018 comedy "Blockers," will helm it and write the script. The former Fifth Harmony member will also provide music for the project, which is produced by James Corden.
