TMZ reports that Ice Cube may also join the project. The script is complete and Regina King and Dana are currently shopping it around. King has starred in a retelling of Cinderella before with 2004’s Hilary Duffy-led A Cinderella Story. We’d love to see her step into a new role in this “Cinderfella” adaptation.
