Emma Stone is in early negotiations to portray the iconic Disney villainess Cruella de Vil in the Disney live-action feature “Cruella”.
A re-imagining of the “101 Dalmatians” character, Kelly Marcel is writing the script which is intended to be an origin story of the character. Aline Brosh McKenna worked on an early version of the script.
No director has yet been set but filming hopes to begin later this year. Andrew Gunn is producing.
Glenn Close previously played a live-action version of the character in two films in the 1990s, while Victoria Smurfit has taken on the role recently in ABC’s “Once Upon a Time”.
