Cinderella is next up for a dark horror remake treatment

Following on the trail of Winnie the Pooh and Peter Pan, we’ll be seeing a much darker spin on the iconic character of Cinderella.

Brace yourselves, because Cinderella, one of the most famous of the Disney princesses is returning, but not in a form that fans of The House of Mouse will recognise. It has been announced that Cinderella is the latest character to be getting the dark remake treatment, a growing practice that seems to be picking up momentum.

There’s a reason why this trend is growing of course. For smaller production companies, the chance to use an out-of-copyright (but very recognisable) character offers clear potential, especially by presenting said character in ways that we haven’t seen before. As such, we’ve already seen the loveable bear Winnie the Pooh transformed into a murderous slasher, hellbent on killing his former pals in Winnie The Pooh: Blood And Honey. Next up, there’s a planned take on Peter Pan which will reimagine the Boy Who Never Grew Up into a gaslighting rogue. Blimey.

After that? It’s Cinderella’s turn, although the Grimm fairy tales of the 19th century have already delved into a darker take on the character. Maybe not this dark though, as according to the project’s director, Toothfairy’s Louisa Warren, Cinderella will be a full-on killer:

“This an incredibly unique spin on the Cinderella we all love and know,” Warren told Bloody Disgusting, “there are going to be some truly horrific deaths by her hands. I think the gore hounds are in for a treat in my dark retelling.”

The film will be called Cinderella’s Curse and will star Kelly Rian Sanson, Chrissie Wunna and Danielle Scott. We’ll let you know more on this one as we hear it.
