Emma Stone Considering Disney Lawsuit Following Scarlett Johansson (Report)

Emma Stone Considering Disney Lawsuit Following Scarlett Johansson (Report)

Emma Stone is reportedly considering doing what Scarlett Johansson just did.

The 32-year-old actress is considering a lawsuit against Disney for the release of Cruella on Disney+, Screenrant reported Friday (July 30).

The movie premiered simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ back in May, as did Black Widow more recently.

If you didn’t know, Scarlett Johansson filed a lawsuit against Disney, citing that the dual release was a breach of her contract, as her salary is contingent on the movie’s box office numbers, which she believed were affected by the Disney+ launch.

Former THR Editor Matt Belloni wrote in his What I’m Hearing… newsletter that she is currently considering a lawsuit too: “Emma Stone, star of Cruella, is said to be weighing her options,” he wrote, adding that Disney is “notoriously difficult to deal with” in these circumstances.

He also wrote that Scarlett has overwhelming amount of support from fellow creatives, and that this issue won’t go away anytime soon.

Here is how Disney reacted to the lawsuit.
