Like Angelina Jolie before her, Emma Stone is going to show us why a Disney villainess maybe isn't quite so evil after all--even if, Christ, she skins puppies? Fuck. THR reports that Stone is in talks for the title lead in Cruella, the film planned as an origin story of how a young Cruella de Vil became singularly obsessed with being a dog abductor/furrier. Saving Mr. Banks and Fifty Shades of Grey writer Kelly Marcel is currently penning the perfectly rational reason for why the 101 Dalmations antagonist was obsessed with dalmatian puppy fur, and also for why she couldn't just raise her own puppies instead of going through extreme lengths to steal pets. This one's going to be a rough sell, Disney.
