Following in the footsteps of Maleficent–the upcoming live-action film about the iconic evil sorceress from Sleeping Beauty—Disney is reportedly working on a standalone film starring everyone’s favorite diabolical fashionista and PETA’s worst nightmare: Cruella De Vil.
The movie will be entitled Cruella, and Aline Brosh McKenna, who recently worked on Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Cinderella, has been tapped to pen the script.
No details have yet been made available regarding plot or casting, but it seems likely the film will take place prior to the events of 101 Dalmatians…. if so, then it seems unlikely that Glenn Close (who played the villainess in the 1996 live-action version of the animated Disney classic, and its sequel) will reprise the role.
