Reports indicate that Disney has hired Saving Mr. Banks screenwriter Kelly Marcel to work on Cruella, a film based on Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians. Interestingly, Marcel recently worked on the script for 50 Shade of Grey.
Reportedly Marcel is working with Togetherness co-creator Steve Zissis on the story. Plot details are unknown.
Cruella first came to the screen in the 1961 animated classic, being animated by Disney Legend Marc Davis. She also appeared in two live-action films in 1996 and 2000 portrayed by Glenn Close.
Disney recently announced release dates for three untitled live-action fairy tale films. It is unknown if Cruella, which is questionably a fairy tale, will take up one of those release dates.
