Cecilie Mosli's Three Wishes for Cinderella enters production
- Norwegian singer Astrid S will play the title role in a modern-day remake of the 1973 Czech film
TV director and actress Cecilie Mosli (the TV series Thin Ice) is now shooting a new family film entitled Three Wishes for Cinderella. The project, a modern remake of the 1973 Czech feature of the same name directed by Václav Vorlíček, was penned by Kamilla Krogsveen and Karsten Fullu alongside writing duo Anna Bache-Wiig and Siv Rajendram Eliassen.
The story follows Cinderella (played by popular Norwegian music star Astrid Smeplass, best known as Astrid S), who, armed with a great deal of courage, and empowered by her three magical hazelnuts, is able to break free from her cruel stepmother's tyranny and rescue the prince (Cengiz Al) from his gilded cage.
Three Wishes for Cinderella is being produced by Frederick PN Howard and Petter J Borgli for Oslo-based outfit Storm Films. The film has received support from the Nordisk Film & TV Fond, Film Kolektiv, the Norwegian Film Institute, Nordisk Film, the Lithuanian Tax Incentive, the European Union's Creative Europe - MEDIA programme and Sola Media, which is also handling its world sales.
Nordisk Film Distribution is in charge of its local release, scheduled for November 2021.
