According to The Hollywood Reporter, Emma Stone is in talks to be Disney’s newest rejigged villain – Cruella De Vil.
The ‘101 Dalmatians’ villain is getting the ‘Sleeping Beauty’ treatment – much in the same way as Angelina Jolie‘s ‘Maleficent‘, Cruella’s origin story will finally be told.
So far, the production has no director, but Kelly Marcel (Fifty Shades of Grey) is writing the script. They’re hoping to begin filming during 2016.
While Emma’s excellent goofiness will be ever-so-slightly out of place in this picture, for some reason… she just seems spot on for Cruella.
Well done you, casting agent. Well done, you.
