Emma Stone will return for Cruella 2, which is also reuniting the core creative team behind the movie as well.
Over the past week or two, you might have caught the story that Scarlett Johansson and Disney are embroiled in a legal case over monies owed or not from Marvel’s Black Widow. This relates to alleged lost earnings for Johansson when Disney split the release of the movie between cinemas and its Premiere Access service.
The same fate befell Disney’s Cruella movie, that followed a similar release pattern. But if there’s been a similar behind the scenes dispute with the star of that one, Emma Stone, then it’s been played out fully behind closed doors.
Furthermore, Disney has inked a deal with Stone to reprise her role in a sequel to Cruella, which for the minute we’ll call Cruella 2. We thought of that ourselves.
It’s not just Stone that’s back either. Tony McNamara is returning to pen the script, and Craig Gillespie will once again be directing. Whether Disney releases the film in quite the same way remains to be seen, but that’s a question a little further ahead for the minute. For the moment: it’s happening, and Emma Stone is not suing the company either. Result.
