Disney Bringing Live-Action Cruella de Vil To The Silver Screen Soon?
Next Year Disney Will be Releasing their Live-Action "Maleficent" Starring Angelina Jolie as the Titular Character, But it appears Disney Studios has their eye on another villain...
The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Disney is moving forward with a solo film for Cruella de Vil, aptly titled Cruella. It appears Aline Brosh McKenna (We Bought A Zoo, The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses) has been hired to pen the script.
Cruella de Vil is the villain in Dodie Smith’s book The One Hundred and One Dalmatians. Disney adapted the book into the 1961 animated classic 101 Dalmatians and the live action 1996 film, which was followed by the 2000 sequel 102 Dalmatians. Glenn Close played de Vil in both live action films, but Disney is most likely going to want someone a little younger this time around. However, Close is in involved with Cruella, acting as an executive producer.
There’s no word on a director or casting, but that will come together once Aline's script is finished.
