The actors were named yesterday alongside British actor Lily James as the contenders for the role in Cinderella, to be directed by Kenneth Branagh.
Landing the job would be a coup for any of the starlets, who are all making names for themselves working their way up the Hollywood ladder. Robbie got her start on Neighbours and is best known internationally for US TV series Pan Am and will next be seen opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street.
Heathcote was also on Neighbours and was in Dark Shadows and In Time.
Initially, Harry Potter’s Emma Watson and Les Miserables’ Amanda Seyfried were in the mix.
Cate Blanchett is attached to the film to play Lady Madonna Tremaine, Cinderella’s evil stepmother.
With such a strong Aussie line-up, perhaps they’ll film at Sydney’s Fox Studios.
We are dying to hear who Branagh will cast as the handsome prince. Could we suggest Chris Hemsworth or his brother Liam?
Cinderella will be the latest in a long line of fairytale adaptations.
