Cruella is an upcoming American live-action film which will be distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. Glenn Close, Andrew Gunn and Aline Brosh McKenna will produce the film.[1] McKenna was also hired as the writer of the film; in October 2015, she was replaced by Kelly Marcel, who also wrote the screen play for Saving Mr. Banks. The film is expected to be released between 2017 and 2019.[2]

This is not the first time 101 Dalmatians was adapted in live action, the 1996 version and its sequel were the first two.

The film itself is suggested to be an origin story for Cruella, hence making it a possible prequel to the 101 Dalmatians story.

In January 2016, it was reported that Emma Stone is in negotiations to play Cruella.[3]

In April 2016, Disney confirmed that she is indeed playing the character.[4]

In December 2016, Alex Timbers is confirmed to direct the film.[5]
