Disney has decided to make a live-action movie about Cruella de Vil
Based on the total lack of feedback about the as-yet-unproven concept of making a live-action movie about an animated villain from Angelina Jolie's turn in Maleficent, Disney has already started making another one. This one will be about 101 Dalmations evildoer Cruella de Vil. Didn't Glenn Close do that in 1996?
Sky High and Bedtime Stories producer Andrew Gunn is behind the movie, with Aline Brosh McKenna writing and producing, The Hollywood Reporter says. Close, meanwhile, really is involved, serving as an executive producer (she reprised the role in the 2000 sequel, 102 Dalmations.
No other details were provided, but one thing is pretty clear: If this is going to be a trend at Disney, we can't wait until they try to make Ursula from The Little Mermaid.
