Earlier tonight The Hollywood Reporter revealed that actress Emma Stone is in early Negotiations to portray the iconic Disney villainess Cruella de Vil in a live action origin story of the character title Cruella.

Here are some details via THR:

The project, Disney’s live-action re-imagining of the 101 Dalmatians character, has no director but it is a priority for the studio which is hoping to shoot the film later this year.

Kelly Marcel is writing the script which is intended to be an origin story of the character. Aline Brosh McKenna worked on an early version of the script.

Andrew Gunn is producing. Kristin Burr and Jessica Virtue are overseeing for the studio.

De Vil has already been portrayed on the big-screen in the two live action remakes of the classic 101 Dalmatians by the great Glen Close back in 1996. No more details are known about the project Cruella.
