The Hollywood Reporter reported yesterday that Emma Stone is in early negotiations to play the villainess Cruella de Vil in the new Disney live action film, Cruella.

Hoping to begin filming later this year, this film has no director yet, but Kelly Marcel is currently writing the script, which is intended to be the origin story of the iconic character.

Andrew Gunn is producing, while Kristin Burr and Jessica Virtue are overseeing the studio production.

The villain made her first appearance in the 1961 animated classic “101 Dalmatians” and Glenn Close later played her in the 1996 version of the live action film, which was produced by John Hughes.

    The project was originally set to cast Meryl Streep as Cruella–hot on the heels of all the live-villain-origin money they hadn’t made yet on Maleficent–but GUESS WHAT HAPPENED?? 🙂

    (And the reason Meryl was cast was that Aline McKenna was originally set to write the script, and hey, didn’t she write The Devil Wears Prada, too? That one had an evil Streep fashion-designer in it!)
