I thought they said before Glenn Close was involved in some way? :?

I'm not sure if she's still involved with the project but early in its development she signed on as an executive producer. Of course, her involvement in that capacity did not necessarily mean the film was to be a prequel to the 1996 film. That's something we assumed.

I think she's one of the film's producers but that may not amount to much.

I know that. But it's strange that she would want to be involved with this project if not for that reason. It's not like this is going to be a great film or something that would receive awards attention that she would get anything out of being involved in the making of it over working on better things instead.

Close is a huge Disney fan and having worked on cultivating Cruella's character for two films, perhaps she felt she could be a resource for this film in their fresh new take on her. Or maybe she just wanted involvement of some sorts.

The thing is, you can't really make a movie focused specifically on a character like Cruella unless you alter the character one way or the other. Either you give her some kind of backstory of abuse/trauma or a mental illness that inevitably makes her somewhat sympathetic, or you have to make her even crazier than she was in order to fill a film of her that's supposed to revolve around her being a lunatic. In the latter case, I can picture a story where Cruella (like most psychopaths) exhibits disturbing behavior as a child that terrifies her parents, then grows up even more dangerous and terrifies/endangers the people around her as an adult, etc. etc., but even that would require another lead during the adult half for Cruella to be treated like the villain in a slasher movie. :lol:

But Disney would never have the balls to do that because a film based on a character well-known from a children's film has to ultimately be made with a family audience in mind. Trying to make a movie of her "life" without either a sympathetic backstory or making her more dangerous/crazy than she was would mean a movie only of flashbacks to her acting like a spoiled brat as a child and then a spoiled brat as a teenager in college and then as a spoiled brat as an adult. That wouldn't be captivating enough to make up an entire film, so the only other option is a backstory that ends up humanizing her to a degree.

It doesn't have to be limited to those things. I could totally imagine a movie where Cruella is just a normal, perhaps bratty child who grows up to be the character we all know and love. A movie where she starts out as a brat but then gets worse when she doesn't get her way. She can grow into the character. Gaston was kind of like that in one long movie.

Why aren't they connecting it to the live action 101 Dalmatians .... ? :? I guess that means that they aren't relating it to 101 Dalmatians at all then ... ?

The mind boggles at all the reboots and different back stories everyone has going on.

I'm still surprised they dropped that Chernabog/Night on Bald Mountain-inspired film. I wonder how that would have even worked. :lol:

Maybe they are releasing Cruella in December to hope to get Production Design and Costume Design nominations from the Academy.

I'm really looking forward to this movie. The concept sounds interesting and Emma Stone is one of the best young actresses in hollywood.

I think this movie could be good. But i wish it was rated R. I think if any Disney movie should get that Ratting it's one about Cruella De Vill.

Honestly, if this film was being made by any other studio, it probably would be rated R.

I have some questions about this movie.

When will it start filming ?

Is it true Nicolas Cage might have role ?

Has the baroness been officially cast yet ?

I still think Disney should take the risk and make this an R rated movie.

It would work better then i think

but they would never do it.

I just think this movie should be simlar to the Joker movie tha Warner Brothers s making or American Pyscho with Chrstrian Bale.

The Cruella movie i would make would be simlar in tone to Scarface or the wolf of wall street.

Where the lead gets crupted by money and power and loses all morailty.

Taxi Driver is about that but withou the money anfd power.

But Disney wouldn't risk alienating families. So they sadly wouldn't take that risk.
