As Disney toils to update its extensive library of animated classics with a huge slate of reimaginings, reboots and origin stories, the studio has zeroed in one of its most famous (and fur-loving) villainesses for a live-action origin story: 101 Dalmatians‘ Cruella de Vil.
Saving Mr. Banks screenwriter Kelly Marcel, best known for penning Fifty Shades of Grey, is attached to write Cruella for Disney, which views the origin pic as a priority and is fast-tracking it as such. Marcel will collaborate with Steve Zissis, the co-creator of HBO’s Togetherness, on the story. Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada) previously worked on a version of the script.
Cruella de Vil, who appeared in both the 1961 animated original and its 2003 direct-to-video sequel, is one of Disney’s most widely recognizable villains, from her ostentatious fashion to her distinctive red-and-black automobile, so perhaps it shouldn’t come as much of a »

We should have many more Guillermo del Toro films in our lives, at least two. There’s a big gap in Gdt’s oeuvre between 2008’s “Hellboy II: The Golden Army” and 2013’s “Pacific Rim,” even though the filmmaker was attached to myriad projects in that interim including a “Frankenstein” and “Beauty And The Beast” film that never happened. It’s also because del Toro spent/wasted nearly five years on two films he almost made, “The Hobbit,” which Peter Jackson eventually made (Gdt bailed after nearly two years of development because financing took forever) and “At The Mountains Of Madness” which Universal canceled at the last minute because they got cold feet about the R-Rating. There was also a “Pacific Rim 2” film that almost began shooting this fall, but it’s been pushed back to a Tbd who knows when. And it appears he’s getting a little bit »

The wheels are finally in motion for Disney's live-action Cruella de Vil movie.
Fifty Shades of Grey screenwriter Kelly Marcel will pen the script for 101 Dalmations spinoff Cruella, which is now being fast-tracked by the studio, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Cruella is one of several live-action movies Disney currently has in the pipeline.
Glenn Close previously played Cruella in the live-action version of 101 Dalmatians in 1996 and its 2000 sequel 102 Dalmatians. »
Disney Pictures is reportedly fast-tracking "Cruella," a live-action feature about the villainess from the "101 Dalmatians" films Cruella de Vil.
"Saving Mr. Banks" and "Fifty Shades of Grey" screenwriter Kelly Marcel is attached to write the project which is expected to be one of the four untitled Disney live-action fantasy films that were announced this week as part of their upcoming film slate through to the year 2020.
"Togetherness" co-creator Steve Zissis is also working on the story for the film. Marcel and Zissis take over from Aline Brosh McKenna who was said to have done some work on an early version of the script.
De Vil first appeared in Dodie Smith's 1956 novel which served as the basis for the 1961 animated movie. Glenn Close memorably played the character in the 1996 "101 Dalmatians" live-action film and its sequel, while Victoria Smurfit has recently been portraying the character on ABC's "Once Upon a Time »

Two years after Disney first announced a live action movie based on the iconic 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella De Vil, the studio is finally moving forward on the project with a new writer. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the studio has hired Kelly Marcel to write the screenplay for Cruella. The site reports that Disney is putting this project on the fast track, although it isn't known when production may begin.
Earlier this week, Disney issued four release dates for unspecified fairy tale films. If Cruella is in fact being put on the fast track, it could very well be the movie that takes the first of these mystery release dates, December 22, 2017. Still, the studio hasn't confirmed a release date for Cruella, or which of the several fairy tale projects in development will get those four dates.
Alongside platoon leader Sergeant Baker (Evans), the troops attempt to protect a farming village in the crosshairs of some very dangerous enemies.
Cavill will be playing the special forces captain running the operation.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be Cavill's next project where he'll be taking on the role of Clark Kent. »

Instead, by the end of "The Dark Swan," the residents of Storybrooke find themselves in a somewhat familiar place, with Who, What, Why and How questions that need answers.

They’ll happily argue that their favourite has a wonderful soundtrack, a brilliant script and the most endearing characters. In fact, a night in watching one of these movies surrounded by some of your favourite people inevitably sounds like perfection.
That is, until you realise some of the whopping mistakes. And once you’ve noticed them, you can’t un-see them.
There are a number of movie mistakes in some of your favourite Disney movies that you might not have seen before.

When we were kids, Disney movies took up a generous portion of our VHS shelf -- and for good reason. "The Little Mermaid," "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Lion King" are just a few of the formative classics that shaped our childhood.
But the Mouse House isn't the only studio we have care space for when it comes to animated films. Here are a few non-Disney animated movies that you gotta add to your collection.
