Emma Stone in Talks to Play Cruella de Vil in Disney Origin Story
The 27-year-old Aloha actress may star in the origin story of the 101 Dalmatians character.
The original animated 101 Dalmatians film premiered in 1961. Cruella was played in live-action by Glenn Close in 1996, and depicted as the head of a fashion house intent on stealing the dalmatians’ famous spotted fur coats.
The film does not yet have a director but is reportedly a priority for the studio and will likely begin shooting within the year.
