Emma Stone, the Oscar-winning actress, is poised to star in the sequel to her Disney smash, Cruella.
According to Deadline and Variety, Stone has officially signed a deal to play the eponymous villain in Cruella 2, another prequel to the studio’s original 101 Dalmations story.
In May, Cruella was released in theatres and on Disney+. Emma Thompson, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beecham, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and Mark Strong also appeared in the live-action feature.
In the 1996 live-action film 101 Dalmations and its sequel, 102 Dalmations, Glenn Close portrays an older version of the dog-obsessed fashionista.
Stone is known for her roles in Zombieland, La La Land, Birdman, The Croods and The Favourite.
