Emma Stone to Shoot Disney’s Cruella Movie This Summer?
Disney Cruella will apparently begin production this summer in London, in England. Emma Stone is attached to play the role of 101 Dalmatians in the film, which is to be directed by Craig Gillespie ( I, Tanya ). We have had an update on the project for some time, but this summer seems to be the perfect time to start turning for a possible release date for the summer of 2020. It was originally thought that Cruella was going to be released in May of this year, but that obviously does not happen. Either way, Disney probably does not even have room in their release schedule.
The beginning of production for Cruella has not been announced yet. Sources close to the long-standing development project only indicate that the cameras will start shooting this summer. Whichever date is chosen, this is good news for Disney fans waiting to see Emma Stone play the role of Cruella of Vil. Disney is currently gearing up for a great year in regards to its real-life remakes, releasing Dumbo Aladdin and the Lion King .
The details of the first story of Cruella point to England in the early 1980s, just after the punk movement split into a million pieces . It is not clear if the punk element will remain, but it would be a pretty awesome way to get into the roots of Cruella of Vil. Maybe she was friends with Sid and Nancy before everything went wrong, even though they both died in 1979. Anyway, the sources say that the film will adopt a punk-rock attitude, what could mean a lot to a Disney

Glenn Close starred Cruella from 1945 in the original remake of 101 Dalmatians live-action and his sequel. Close expressed her interest in the return because she loved to talk about the role, but unless Disney asked her to play in the movie, she would be left out. Emma Stone is the new villain of the city. It will be very interesting to see how the studio reinvents this character and tells his story of origin. As seen with Maleficent Disney is not afraid to take things in a dark place and Cruella could definitely benefit from a little courage put into the mix. ]
Unfortunately, there are not really any other important updates on Cruella at this time. But, hopefully, all this will change now that production starts to increase. If the summer production starts to be accurate, we could have information about the casting in the coming weeks, which should help shed some light on the somewhat mysterious project. Meanwhile, Disney is preparing for 2019 with the purpose of the award. This year could well be one of the most important for the longtime studio with its real action remakes as well as their Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios projects, all of which should break box office records. The story of Cruella was first reported by The Disney Insider.
