The co-writer of Spectre and Edge Of Tomorrow gets to work on the script for Cruella, starring Emma Stone.
One of the many assorted live action fairy tales that Disney is working on is a new big screen Cruella De Vil movie. Based on the infamous villainous from 101 Dalmatians, the new film will go by the name of Cruella, and Emma Stone has been cast in the role (Glenn Close played Cruella De Vil in a pair of live action movies previously, of course, and she’s an executive producer on this movie).
We’re still none the wiser as to who will be directing the new Cruella, but we do know who’s set to write it. Jez Butterworth, who co-penned the last James Bond adventure, Spectre, has been hired to rewrite the Cruella script. His previous credits also include Black Mass and Edge Of Tomorrow. He’ll be working from previous drafts by Kelly Marcel and Aline Brosh McKenna.
The plan is to have Cruella before the cameras in October of this year. Our best guess at a release date would be the very end of 2017 or, more likely, around Easter 2018.
