Disney already has one film coming down the pike that focuses on one of their many female villains. It's called Maleficent and stars Angelina Jolie. Now they're going for another with a live-action Cruella de Vil movie. I'm guessing it too will probably star Angelina Jolie. Let's just put her in everything where a lady is supposed to be wicked.
For those who don't know, Cruelle de Vil is the villain found in 101 Dalmatians. She looks like an angry skull with a wig on. Sometimes she's animated. Other times she looks like Glenn Close. Sometimes she's meant to scare the shit out of kids. Sometimes she's not.
According to THR, who broke this story, the film will be written by Aline Brosh McKenna and will simply be called Cruella. I believe it's a play on the word "cruel" but that's not confirmed. There are also rumors that Cruella will be a prequel, but who knows. Obviously it's going to be R-rated regardless of when it takes place. She smokes.
