Camila Cabello to star in new take on Cinderella from James Corden

Camila Cabello at the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards

Cabello was part of the girl group Fifth Harmony before going solo. Now, here's where it gets more magical: This new take on the folk-tale material grew out of an original idea from The Late Late Show host and Carpool Karaoke fairy godfather James Corden.

The Hollywood Reporter now details how Camila is set to make her acting debut in a reimaged tale of Cinderella.

Pop royalty Cabello will also be involved in creating the music for the film. Blockers director Kay Cannon will helm the project, which hails from the mind of producer James Corden.

The story will be a modern retelling of the traditional fairytale about the orphaned girl forced to cook and clean for her cruel stepmother and stepsisters before falling in love with a prince at a royal ball. She made her directorial debut with Blockers. She went on to grab two Grammy nominations this year and her hit single "Havana" holds the record for the most-streamed song by a female artist on Spotify with over 1 billion streams.

Cabello released her self-titled album in January 2018, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. Sony is putting the project on the fast track for production.

Cabello celebrated the news by tweeting a since-deleted photo of the cartoon Cinderella looking shocked, before sharing a photo of herself on a bench.
