Helena Bonham Carter to play Cinderella's fairy godmother

And this isn't even a Tim Burton flick.

Helena Bonham Carter (Les Miserables) has been added to the cast of Kenneth Branagh's upcoming adaptation of Cinderella. Carter will be playing the fairy godmother who gives Cinderella her one night to try and win the prince. This version of the tale will feature the godmother more than in the Disney cartoon. She is disguised as an old beggar woman who watches over Cinderella

The film also stars Lily James as Cinderella, Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother, and Richard Madden as the prince. Filming is set to begin this fall in London.
