Emma Stone set to Play Cruella De Vil!!
Get excited folks! Another live-action film is coming our way! This time the feature film will be the classic story of 101 Dalmatians. Disney Addicts first saw the popular classic in 1961 as an animated classic. The animated film was then made into a live-action film in 1996 starring Glenn Close as the evil villain, Cruella De Vil. In this live-action, produced by John Hughes, De Vil was featured as the head of a fashion house. However, in this new live-action film remake Emma Stone will be playing the evil infamous villain with a more 1980’s punk vibe.
This remake was set to feature Alex Timbers, who is also a well known theater director, to direct the project. However, due to scheduling issues that is no longer the case. Timber will be busy with his two major Broadway productions, Moulin Rouge and Beetlejuice, which are set to debut next year. Instead, this major production has taken on a new director. Even though this is still in the early talks, Craig Gillespie is slated to take the director position. Craig Gillespie comes with a great background that will help make this live-action remake into a success. Gillespie is best known for his latest production of I, Tonya in 2017. This film went on to earn Margot Robbie an Oscar nomination and Allison Janney a best supporting actress Oscan Win.
So, as you can see, Disney has picked a good contender to direct this well known Disney classic, as well as the start of an awesome cast. I sure am excited to see this live-action film when it comes out! I have always loved the story of the 101 Dalmatians and let’s face it, who doesn’t know the popular song? “Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Vil. If she doesn’t scare you, No evil thing will. To see her, is to take a sudden chill. Cruella, Cruella De Vil”.
