Disney will make Live-Action Cruella de Vil Film

UPDATED: The writer for the studio's live-action "Cinderella" has been hired to pen the script for what is being titled "Cruella."


After making a movie centered on Maleficent, the villainess from Sleeping Beauty, Disney is setting its sights on another bad lady: Cruella de Vil.

Aline Brosh McKenna has been hired to pen Cruella, which will bring the dog-fur-loving fashionista from 101 Dalmatians into a live-action feature to be produced by Andrew Gunn, who produced Sky High and Bedtime Stories for the studio. McKenna will also produce.

De Vil first appeared in Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians but became a Disney icon with the 1961 animated movie. And it's not the character's first incarnation in a live-action feature. Glenn Close memorably played the character in 1996's 101 Dalmatians and the 2000 sequel, 102 Dalmatians.

In fact, Close is in involved with Cruella, acting as an executive producer.

I think Disney is going in the right direction with this. The Disney fans want villains and they are giving them villains. Now we just need to transfer this into the parks I would love to see more of them in the parks. I'm actually excited to see what they can do with maleficent and now with cruella.

Actresses Who Should Play Cruella De Vil In Disney's New Movie


Obviously Glenn Close should reprise her role as Cruella de Vil in Disney's newly announced live-action update based on the classic "101 Dalmatians" villain. Her Golden Globe-nominated turn in the 1996 adaptation will be hard to top. But someone else may have to have to do it, as Glenn will serve as executive producer on "Cruella" and is unlikely to return to the role.

That means we need to find a solid substitute, someone who can attempt to measure up to Close's devilish turn. Here are 12 of our suggestions. Let us know who's missing from our list in the comments below. Click link for more.

Tilda Swinton is the top pick.
