Emma Thompson in Cruella Movie

Walt Disney Pictures is still going full steam ahead with their slate of live-action remakes of their animated classics. However, in the case of one of their most famous movies, they’re taking a different live-action approach.

Now the film, simply called Cruella, has landed a new cast member in Emma Thompson. And come to think of it, she would have made a hell of a choice to play Cruella de Vil in the live-action 101 Dalmatians if Glenn Close had ended up turning down the job. Read More »
