Singer-songwriter Camila Cabello will star in writer-director Kay Cannon’s re-telling of “Cinderella” for Sony Pictures.

Cabello will be involved in the music for the project, which grew out of an original idea from James Corden. The film will be produced by Corden and Leo Pearlman through their Fulwell73 banner.

The new “Cinderella” will be a music-oriented version of the traditional tale of the orphaned girl with an evil stepmother. Sony is putting the project on the fast track for production.

Sony took to Twitter on Tuesday to add to the hype, sharing photos of Cabello wearing a blue gown and writing: "Grab your glass slippers and ballgowns."

The best-known “Cinderella” movies been Disney’s animated drama, released in 1950, and two live-action remakes: 1997’s version starring Brandy and Whitney Houston, and the 2015 film with Lily James. The latter grossed $543 million worldwide.

Cuban native Cabello, who was part of Fifth Harmony before going solo, hit superstar status last year with her single “Havana” and her debut album “Camilla,” which debuted at No. 1 on 110 different iTunes charts around the world.

Cabello made history in February as the first Latina to open the 61st Grammy Awards ceremony. She did it by recreating a Latino-esque "block party," while performing her Grammy-nominated hit "Havana" alongside Latin music stars Ricky Martin and J Balvin.

Cannon was an Emmy-nominated writer on “30 Rock” and wrote the “Pitch Perfect” comedies. She made her directorial debut with Universal’s comedy “Blockers,” starring Kathryn Newton, Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, and John Cena.
