The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Disney is moving forward with a solo film for Cruella de Vil, aptly titled Cruella. The studio has chosen Aline Brosh McKenna (We Bought A Zoo, The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses) has been hired to pen the script.
de Vil is the villain in Dodie Smith’s book The One Hundred and One Dalmatians. Disney adapted the book into the 1961 animated classic 101 Dalmatians and the live action 1996 film, which was followed by the 2000 sequel 102 Dalmatians. Glenn Close played de Vil in both live action films, but I’m guessing Disney is going to want someone a little younger this time around.
There’s no word on a director or casting, but that will come together once the script is finished.
