Emma Stone's 'Cruella' Adds 'Mozart in the Jungle' Creator Alex Timbers
Director Alex Timbers has been hired to direct Cruella, following the villainous woman who has a habit of stealing puppies and turning them into clothing. The 101 Dalmations character will get a live-action retelling with Emma Stone playing the heinous woman.
Timbers co-created Mozart in the Jungle, and will direct from a script by Saving Mr. Banks and Fifty Shades of Grey scribe Kelly Marcel. There is as of yet no release date for the film.
Cruella will be Timbers' first foray into feature filmmaking, but has experience on Broadway and has earned Tony nominations for his work. Stone, meanwhile, can be seen in La La Land.
