The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that Fifty shades of Grey screenwriter Kelly Marvel has been tapped to write a script based on iconic villain Cruella Da Vil.
The project titled “Cruella” is said to be being fast tracked by Disney to be within the same tone as other live action remakes of iconic Disney Cartoons already in production such as The Jungle Book, Through the Looking Glass and Beauty in The Beast.
The character first made an appearance in the 1956 novel “The Hundred and One Dalmatians”. The popularity of the book lead to the cartoon being made in 1996.
Cruella De Vil has been portrayed in live action before by Glenn Close in the 1996 live action adaption of the cartoon which also had a sequel in 2000 titled “102 Dalmatians”.
