Emma Stone Eyed for Lead Role in Disney’s Live-Action ‘Cruella’ Film


“Amazing Spider-Man” star Emma Stone is in talks to play eponymous character in Disney’s live-action “Cruella” (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Introduced in Dodie Smith’s 1956 novel “The Hundred and One Dalmatians,” the crazed and cunning Cruella gained iconic status with Disney’s 1961 animated film, which based her mannerisms on actress Tallulah Bankhead. Glenn Close played the character in Disney’s 1996 live-action version and its sequel “102 Dalmatians.”

“Fifty Shades of Grey” scribe Kelly Marcel is on hand to pen the script for the film, with Andrew Gunn producing and Kristin Burr and Jessica Virtue overseeing for the studio. Production is expected to begin sometime later this year.

“Cruella” is part of a growing slate of live-action films based on Disney’s animated classics: 2014’s “Maleficent,” “Cinderella” and the upcoming “Jungle Book,” “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Dumbo.”

    Emma Stone is also a frontrunner for role of my wife. It’s looking good for her.

    In all seriousness, how is a live action Dumbo going to work?

  • David Angle

    NO! She is NOT fit for the part. She is more of Anita than an evil backstabbing diva. While I love love love her she will not scare me at all.

    If it works out lets have a double wedding

  • Leto

    If she doesn’t scare you, no evil thing will.

  • TallBoy6t6

    She can do comedically big screenry chewing, I’m down!

  • Fuzzy Barbarian

    Huh… haven’t ever seen her in a straight-up villainous role. But she did do a good evil laugh in Amazing Spider-Man 2, so who knows.
