Disney plans Cruella De Vil film

Cruella de Vil is to get her own Disney film, according to reports

Disney baddie Cruella De Vil is set to feature in her own spin-off film.

A writer has already been taken on to pen the script for the planned live-action outing, which is being titled Cruella, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Glenn Close - who portrayed the dog fur-loving villain in 1996's 101 Dalmatians and the 2000 sequel, 102 Dalmatians - will be involved in the project, as an executive producer.

Aline Brosh McKenna, the screenwriter behind the upcoming live-action version of Cinderella and The Devil Wears Prada, has been hired to work on the script for Cruella, which she would also produce with Andrew Gunn.

The character, who first appeared in Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred And One Dalmatians, featured on the big screen in Disney's animated version of 101 Dalmatians in 1961.

Cruella is the latest baddie to get her own film, after Sleeping Beauty villain Maleficent, who will be portrayed by Angelina Jolie in the upcoming movie.

101 Dalmatians, featuring Betty Lou Gerson as the voice of Cruella, was the tenth highest grossing film of 1961 and is known as one of Disney's most popular films.

If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
