Disney is making some minor changes to their release schedule as they have pushed Cruella to 2021, and the Fox 2000 drama Woman in the Window to 2020.
Cruella which is set to star Emma Stone, was originally set to debut on Dec 23, 2020 has been pushed back 5 months to May 28, 2021, a date that saw major success for Aladdin this year.
Directed by Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya), the film centered on classic Disney villain Cruella De Vil’s origins, is also set to star Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks), Paul Walter Hauser (Blackkklansman), and Joel Fry (Yesterday). Production is expected to begin next month.
Woman in the Window was acquired by Disney during the Fox buyout, and was expected to hit theaters October 4, 2019, but was taken of the release schedule last month. Now, the studio has dated the movie for May 15, 2020.
Directed by Joe Wright, and based on the on thriller novel of the same name from author A.J. Finn, The Woman in the Window tells the story of Dr. Anna Fox, a recluse in New York City who drinks her days away alone in her apartment, watching classic films and her neighbors. When the Russells move into the house across the way, Anna sees the ideal family and spies on them, only to witness a shocking event that changes her life.
The film is to star Amy Adams (Enchanted), Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour), Anthony Mackie (Avengers: Endgame), Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Brian Tyree Henry (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse), and Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street).
Disney also removed an untitled live-action film from its release schedule that was once dated for May 28, 2021, which we believe was being saved for the studios live-action adaptation of Pinocchio, which lost its director earlier this year.
