Game Of Thrones' Richard Madden to rule a much nicer kingdom in Cinderella

Clearly not overly concerned with typecasting, Game Of Thrones’ Richard Madden will move from one castles-and-costumes drama to another by joining Cinderella, Disney’s live-action fantasy that it can replicate the success of Alice In Wonderland. The King In The North will play the notably less intimidating Prince Charming to Lily James’ Cinderella, in which the future of his realm depends not on waging a long and bloody war, but rather on marrying some hot girl he meets a dance. Of course, if Kenneth Branagh’s film stays true to the original fairy tale, there’s a pretty good chance he’ll still be the cause of people losing their body parts.
