‘I, Tonya’ Director In Talks To Direct Live-Action ‘Cruella’

It has been awhile since we have heard much on Disney’s live-action Cruella, a live-action take on the 101 Dalmatians villainess, starring Emma Stone. However according to Deadline that has now changed.

According to the outlet I, Tonya director, Craig Gillespie is in talks to replace Alex Timbers as director of the film. Timbers ran into scheduling issues.

Gillespie is not a stranger to the Disney Company. He directed The Finest Hour starring Chris Pine and Million Dollar Arm starring Jon Hamm, which, all were minor sucesses.

Pre-production is reportedly starting soon, with a film start date to occur next year. The film will take place during 1980’s in London, England.

Emma Stone is still attached to play the title character and the film may lock down a 2021 release date.

De Vil was first seen in the 1961 animated classic 101 Dalmatians. Glenn Close played her in the 1996 live-action film produced by John Hughes, which featured the character as the head of a fashion house.

No other information has been released yet.
