Cruella de Vil is one of Disney's scariest characters (from '101 Dalmatians'). A live-action film feature will now be made based on her.
The scary villainess from 101 Dalmatians is set to have her own movie.
The villainess from 101 Dalmatians will be at the centre of a new Disney live-action feature, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
On the heels of Maleficent, arriving in theatres in 2014, Disney is once again resurrecting one of its wicked characters for a new film. This time, the studios are bringing back Cruella de Vil, the fur-loving, puppy-hating character from Dodie Smith’s 1956 novel The Hundred And One Dalmatians.
The ruthless character first appeared on screen in Disney’s 1961 animated adaptation of the book, complete with white and black hair and aggressively pointy features. In 1996, Glenn Close brought the character to the screen again in Disney’s live-action adaptation. The actress is now one of the producers behind the forthcoming film featuring Cruella de Vil.
The film will be based on a screenplay by Aline Brosh McKenna, the screenwriter behind the adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada as well as Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella, arriving in theatres in 2015.
