Emerald Fennell (Video still via Encore Tickets/Vimeo.)
The projects couldn’t be stylistically further from one another. Still, nothing seems to be slowing down Emerald Fennell. She just broke history as the first British woman ever to win an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and is now writing the book for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s reimagined Cinderella.
Fennell served as the head writer for BBC’s Killing Eve and has also spent time in front of the camera, most recently as Camilla Parker Bowles in Netflix’s The Crown. Fennell and Lloyd Webber are giving this Cinderella (played by Carrie Hope Fletcher) a modern spin. Have a look at what they have to say about the forthcoming production.
