Someday, your prince will come. And that someday is ... right around the corner, thanks to (naturally) Disney!

Continuing its efforts to create live-action fairy tales, Disney has announced it will make a whole movie centered on Prince Charming. Not a lot of details have emerged, except that the script will update the blank-faced animated character the studio used in 1950's "Cinderella." (Charming is also something of a stock name for heroic prince-type characters, so no guarantee the film will have a glass-slipper storyline.)

Since specifics are hard to come by, we decided to activate our inner casting directors and offer up some suggestions for who should play the prince. Here are our eight top choices — Disney, are you listening?

Dan Stevens

As Matthew from "Downton Abbey," Stevens proved he could be both down-to-earth and royally swoony. And then there's that whole tragic death thing he pulled off so well. (Plus, he's already starring in Disney's live-action "Beauty and the Beast.")

Kit Harington

Also (probably) tragically dead (on "Game of Thrones"), Harington would be a superhot prince, and he could watch over our nights any time he liked.

Aidan Turner

Small (as he was in "The Hobbit") or standing tall without his shirt (as he does in "Poldark"), Turner has our complete attention. Plus, he knows about storming castles (or, at least, dragon-guarded dwarf fortresses).

Hugh Jackman

Nobody said the prince has to be in his 20s! We can think of no one as charming as the man otherwise known as Wolverine. Plus, he sings and dances beautifully!

Ryan Gosling

Yes, this may go off the reservation. But hey, girl, here's your modern day prince. (Who also sings and dances, let us not forget.)

Taylor Kitsch

In another feat of creative casting, why not give the "True Detective" and "Friday Night Lights" star another go at our hearts? He'll be the only prince who could score a touchdown.

We knew him first as a young half-blood wizard in the "Harry Potter" films, but Enoch is all grown up and wielding a different kind of smoldering power on "How to Get Away With Murder" these days. He can join our army (he's already been a member of Dumbledore's) any time.

Channing Tatum

Because Channing sounds a lot like "Charming." And because "Magic Mike XXL." 'Nuff said.
