With Maleficient set to arrive in theaters next year, Disney is turning its attention to another evil woman in its library of films – Cruella De Vil.
THR reports that Aline Brosh McKenna, the writer of another live-action Disney character adaptation Cinderella, will be writing the script for this upcoming Cruella De Vil film. The film is simply titled Cruella.
Glenn Close, who portrayed the character in 1996's 101 Dalmatians and the 2000 sequel will serve as producer for the film.
No word on what this film will be about, but given the course Disney has taken with its previous live-action adaptations, chances are this film will likely be an origin story.
Who would you cast for the role of Cruella? Are you interested in seeing a film based on this character and if Disney is going to continue to go the adapting-animated-characters-into-live-action-films route, who else would you like to see on the big screen?
