The 27-year-old The Help actress is in talks to play the iconic Disney villainess in an upcoming re-imagining of the character’s origin story.
Glenn Close portrayed a live action version of Cruella in 1996. Her character, who was famously after the dalmatians’ spotted fur coats, worked as the head of a fashion house. Disney’s original animated movie premiered in 1961.
The remake, which does not yet have a director, will reportedly begin shooting this year and will be a priority for Disney studios.
