“Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Vil / Do you want to see her in a movie again? / Because you’re going to! / If you choose to see the movie that is / It’s not mandatory / Cruella, Cruella!” [Applause] Before you say anything, it can’t be Angelina Jolie because she’s already playing Maleficent in Maleficent. So cross that off of your list. Who else should it be? Glenn Close again? From the Hollywood Reporter:

Aline Brosh McKenna has been hired to pen Cruella, which will bring the dog-fur-loving fashionista from 101 Dalmatians into a live-action feature to be produced by Andrew Gunn, who produced Sky High and Bedtime Stories for the studio. McKenna will also produce
De Vil first appeared in Dodie Smith’s 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians but became a Disney icon with the 1961 animated movie. And it’s not the character’s first incarnation in a live-action feature. Glenn Close memorably played the character in 1996′s 101 Dalmatians and the 2000 sequel, 102 Dalmatians.

In fact, Close is in involved with Cruella, acting as an executive producer.

Ah, so I guess it’s not going to be Glenn Close again. SO, WHO ELSE? Joan Rivers? I think Joan Rivers could carry a Cruella movie pretty well. Annie Clark? I know I always nominate Annie Clark (St. Vincent) for everything, but that is just because she would be perfect in everything, including this. (The same goes for Vincent Gallo. He would be a great Cruella!) So. Julia Louis-Dreyfus?! Hmmmmm. Janice from Friends? I don’t know. Who’s beautiful? Should god damn Benedict Cumberbatch just play Cruella? What do you think?! IF WE DON’T COME UP WITH SOMEONE GOOD HOLLYWOOD WILL NEVER NOTICE US!

  1. Mary Kate Olson, no duh.

  2. SWINTON. Come on, it would be amazing.

  3. Jessica Walter!

  4. Just have whoever gets killed on the Simpsons do it.

  5. Anna Gunn.

  6. Billy Zane

  7. Didn’t we just do this (Glen Close?)???? OK how about Donatella Versace? But have Gina Gershon do it as Donatella!!!

  8. It’ll probably end up being Sharon Stone and it’ll be fine. Not PERFECT like it would be with Mary Kate, or BONKERS like it would be with SWINTON, but fine. Hollywood is usually pretty happy with fine.

  9. Can we talk about how dalmatian is possibly the worst dog to make coats out of? The spots are uneven and the patterns are random. You have to breed a ton of dogs just to make one that has an even coat. Even then they have tons of health issues due to inbreeding between dogs that have similar spots. People talk about Cruella being evil, but what about the dogs’s owners? How did they get 101 perfectly spotted dogs? Oh sure, they just happened to have a pair of dogs that had a litter overspawn by 1400%? Get real, those people are the worst, they probably ran the most vicious puppy mill ever. Anyways, if you wanted to get a real even and soft coat you would go with lab or chow. Not that I’ve thought about this before…

  10. Pretty sure that Helena Bonham Carter will murder anyone who stands in her way of this role and we will never find their bodies.

  11. I’d like to nominate me because I WILL CUT ALL OF YOU who keep talking about my husband like some kind of man-meat. Also? I will wear you like a coat. This is going to be a very dark, dark interpretation.

  12. I thnk emma Watson should ply the part
