Emma Thompson in talks to feature in Cruella

The film is a live-action origin story based on the classic 101 Dalmatians villain, Cruella de Vil

Published: 16th May 2019

Emma Thompson is reportedly in early talks to star alongside Emma Stone in Disneys Cruella, a live-action origin story based on the classic 101 Dalmatians villain, Cruella de Vil.

Director Craig Gillespie is helming the film with Marc Platt, Kristin Burr and Andrew Gunn producing it.

Cruella De Vil, who will be played by Stone in the new movie, is the villain who was obsessed with capturing the puppies in the 1961 animated classic 101 Dalmatians. Glenn Close played the antagonist in the 1996 live-action film, in which her character was also the head of a fashion house.

It is currently unknown where this movie will pick up in de Vil's timeline. The role Thompson would be playing also remains a mystery.

Tony McNamara has penned the most recent version of the script, with Dana Fox writing a previous draft. According to Disney, the film will be getting a worldwide release on December 23, 2020.

This wouldn't be the first time that Thompson has taken a role in one of Disney's live-action adaptations. She has previously played Mrs Potts in the 2017 film, Beauty and the Beast.
