Disney’s Cruella de Vil movie that is set to star Emma Stone is said be set in London in 1979. The late 70s were a time when the U.K. punk had exploded in 1970’s and had come to an end by 1979. The Cruella movie is a prequel to 101 Dalmatians. It will tell the story of Ms. Cruella de Vil.
Omega Underground’s report draws a link to the U.K. punk scene and this the movement was over by the time Sex Pistols broke up in 1978. It will be interesting to see if London punk scene is what conceived Cruella de Vil.Disney is filming the live-action remake of Aladdin outside London and it makes sense that another movie will be filmed in London. Cruella will be helmed by Alex Timbers and is in pre-production.
One would immediately think of the villainess as an older woman who is corrupted by power and money. It will surely be interesting to see the approach that this movie takes with her character. Maybe a younger and sympathetic character? No other actors have been attached to Cruella, and it seems like it will not be long before they announce casting news.
The live-action movies of The Lion King and Aladdin are in production. More news regarding Cruella will be announced soon.
