After various speculations, it has been revealed that the Oscar winner Emma Stone has closed a deal to star in the sequel to Cruella, Disney’s live action.
According to Deadline, the actress signed an exclusive agreement with the company to return to play the villain of the 101 Dalmatians and the protagonist of her own film. Cruella, which due to the coronavirus pandemic had a theatrical and Disney + premiere, has generated more than $ 222 million at the international box office.
As is known, the idea of carrying out Cruella 2 had already been exposed by its director Craig Gillespi, who told Forbes that the possibility of extending the universe of the villain was a reality.
“We talked, perhaps, about the fantasy of making another movie, because we have so much fun together. I’d be happy with that. I feel like we were able to crack the code for this, what its tone was, and with the characters there was this evolution of self-discovery for everyone. Let’s hope we reach a successful port ”, he explained.
Confirmation about the deal made between Emma Stone and Disney to make the sequel to Cruella draws the attention of fans and specialized media, as it was speculated that she would follow in the footsteps of Scarlett Johansson, an actress who sued Disney for the hybrid premiere of Black Widow.
What did the criticism of Cruella say?
Cruella has a 74% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. According to the consensus of the portal, “the film cannot answer the question of why its main character needed an origin story, but this dazzling visual feast is a lot of fun to watch every time its protagonists cross paths.”
