‘Cruella’ Will Begin Filming This Summer in London, England

Another one of Disney’s live-action reimaginings is picking up steam, as ‘Cruella’ will start filming this summer in London, England.

The film is a different take on the ‘101 Dalmations’ franchise, and will star Emma Stone as the titular character.

Further, there are some casting details on the duo that serve as Cruella’s henchman. An African American actor may fill the role of Jasper, while his partner Horace will likely be Caucasian.

Moreover, Craig Gillespie (‘Lars and the Real Girl,’ ‘I, Tonya’) will serve as director now. He replaces Alex Timbers (‘Mozart in the Jungle,’ ‘John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City’), who was part of the film for awhile, but had to depart due to scheduling issues.

The logline is below:

Estella (Cruella De Vil) lives on the streets of 1980’s London with other hoodlums, where we learn the real origins behind Estella’s hatred of Dalmatians.

The film may release next year, as is the goal of the studio, but nothing is set in stone.
