Filming is due to begin in February with Idina Menzel, Billy Porter and Nicholas Galitzine reportedly among the cast. Kay Cannon directs.
Fulwell 73 was set up in 2005 by Pearlman, Ben Winston, Ben Turner and Gabe Turner with Corden joining in 2017 as a fifth full partner. The company currently co-produces The Late Late Show with CBS Television Studios.
Cinderella is one of an array of inward investment projects currently boosting the UK’s production spend.
