The Hollywood Reporter understands that it was the weekend addition of the U.K. to the European countries falling under Donald Trump’s new travel ban to the U.S. that forced the studio to make the decision.
Directed by Kay Cannon (Blockers) from her screenplay and a story by James Corden and produced by Corden, Cinderella is set to star Camila Cabello in the title role alongside Billy Porter, Idina Menzel, Pierce Brosnan, Minnie Driver and Missy Elliott. Corden, whose London-based banner Fulwell 73 (The Late Late Show) is producing together with Jonathan Kadin, also stars.
Production had kicked off in Pinewood Studios in mid-February.
Cinderella was one of just a handful of films and TV projects in the U.K. still shooting, as the entertainment industry reels from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Earlier Monday, Netflix’s The Witcher ground to a halt, while production on The Batman and Jurassic World: Dominion were both suspended over the weekend.
Cinderella had originally been slated for release in February 2021.
Valence Media, parent company of THR, is an investor in Fulwell 73.
