Disney Developing CRUELLA DE VILLE Film

The superhero film trend isn't going anywhere soon and apparently neither are live-action Disney classics based on the original animated films. Last year we got the dark rendition of "Snow White and the Huntsman" starring Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart. Soon we'll get to see the sensational Angelina Jolie star as the villain "Maleficent" and Kenneth Branagh's take on "Cinderella". Now yet another Disney villain is getting her own movie and the character is none other than the Dalmatian-obsessed Cruella De Ville.

Simply titled "Cruella", the script is being penned by "Cinderella" scribe Aline Brosh McKenna. No director or stars are currently attached. Glenn Close starred as the eccentric villainess in "101 Dalmatians" and the sequel and is attached to the project as executive producer. That film also starred Jeff Daniels and Joely Richardson.

We see this situation happen a ton in Hollywood. They tap into a formula that works and want to keep on milking the cow. These classic Disney animated films have decades of momentum and nostalgia under their belt and an insanely large archive to dip into.

It's cool to see a story focus on a particular villain and explore more of their backstory and how they became the menacing creature we know them as. The renowned play "Wicked" so brilliantly did this, and "Maleficent" also sets out to show us there is more than we realize to the layered character.

Now the question is, who will play the colorful Cruella? Let us know who you think should play her in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
