Cate Blanchett is in talks to take on a wicked new role as Cinderella's evil step-mother.

The Australian actress looks set to follow in the footsteps of stars including Julia Roberts and Charlize Theron, who both played Snow White's evil step-mother in films this year (12), by taking on a nasty role in another fairytale adaptation.

Blanchett is in negotiations to star in a big screen Disney re-telling of the Cinderella story, playing the heroine's sinister step-mother in a live-action feature, according to movie website Deadline.com.

The film will be helmed by One Hour Photo director Mark Romanek.

Other big screen fairytale adaptations in the works include a Beauty and The Beast movie starring Emma Watson, Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters with Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, and Maleficent, a Sleeping Beauty spin-off starring Angelina Jolie.
