The Disney villainess, first seen in the 1961 film "101 Dalmatians," was played by Tony winner Glenn Close in the 1996 live-action movie of that animated classic; Close was Golden Globe-nominated for her performance.

 

"Cruella," an origin story of the character, will be penned by Kelly Marcel; an earlier version of the screenplay was written by Aline Brosh McKenna.

No director has been named, although Disney plans to begin filming later this year. Andrew Gunn is producing.
