Actress Regina King Turning Rapper Dana Dane’s Classic “Cinderfella” Into A Movie
by Mike Winslow
(AllHipHop News) Regina King is returning to the fairytale world of Cinderella to turn rapper Dana Dane’s 1987 hit Cinderfella into a new movie.
The “Ray” star and Dane have joined forces on the project and are currently shopping a script around Hollywood, according to TMZ, while hunting for stars.
Sources claim Ice Cube is high on their wish list.
Dane’s hit revolved around an urban “Cinderella” story, in which he was the unlucky ‘princess’ and his fairy godmother was a guy called Hurb.
King has a good track record with “Cinderella” films – she starred in the 2004 remake of “A Cinderella Story.”
And the gender-bending tale isn’t a new concept – comedian Jerry Lewis starred in “Cinderfella” in 1960.
