Helena Bonham Carter has lined up another classic gig.

The "Les Miserables" star will star in Disney's "Cinderella," Walt Disney Studios announced on Thursday.

"Helena Bonham Carter has been cast as the fairy godmother in Disney's upcoming live-action feature 'Cinderella,' directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh," the studio said in a statement.

Richard Madden (who played the ill-fated Robb Stark on "Game of Thrones) has been cast as Prince Charming.
