Timbers To Direct Disney’s “Cruella de Vil”

Alex Timbers, co-creator of Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle,” is now in talks to direct the live-action “Cruella” at Disney Pictures.

Emma Stone is attached to play the title role of Cruella de Vil, the villainess from “101 Dalmatians”. Aline Brosh McKenna and Kelly Marcel penned the most recent draft of the script with Andrew Gunn producing.

Timbers makes his feature film debut on “Cruella,” but is well known for stage directing and has twice been Tony Award-nominated for his work on Broadway.
