Director Mark Romanek has exited Disney's live-action Cinderella remake.

Cate Blanchett is attached to star in the reimagining of the classic fairy tale, written by Chris Weitz (A Better Life, About a Boy) and produced by Simon Kinberg (X-Men trilogy, Elysium)

Disney said in a statement Monday that it's now looking for a new director.

"The Walt Disney Studios and Mark Romanek have parted ways on Disney’s Cinderella project," the company said in a statement. "We are committed to moving the project forward and have begun the search for a new director.  The team here at Disney respects Mark as both a director and a friend, and we hope to find something to work on together in the future."

The Cinderella project was first set up at Disney in May 2010 in the wake of the studio’s success with Alice in Wonderland, the live-action adaptation of the Lewis C. Carroll book that starred Johnny Depp.

Devil Wears Prada writer Aline Brosh McKenna wrote the initial draft of the script.
