After all, it’s hard to figure out how a Disney movie can address how she would end up intent on killing over 100 dogs to make herself a fur coat and why they think her early years are something anyone would want to know more about. Isn’t it enough that she’s just a despicable villain? Apparently not as the project has now become a priority for the studio!
With plans in place to shoot later this year, The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s Emma Stone is now said to be in talks to play Cruella de Vil in Cruella, a movie which was written by Kelly Marcel. A director has not yet been attached and a release date also hasn’t been announced yet.
Cruella de Vil first appeared in the 101 Dalmations cartoon in 1961 and was later played by Glenn Close in the live-action adaptation in 1996. Stone will next be seen in Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, in which she reteams with Crazy, Stupid Love co-star Ryan Gosling.
