THR reports Emma Stone is in early negotiations for the role of 101 Dalmations villainess Cruella de Vil in the live action film, Cruella. The movie is a Maleficent-style re-imagination of the iconic Disney baddie.

Stone's inclusion would be a big first step towards production for the still burgeoning project. But Disney says finding a director is next. Shooting could begin in late 2016.

Cruella will reportedly be an origin story and will be written by Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks). 

This wouldn't be the first time we've seen a live-action Cruella. Glenn Close played her in the John Hughes-produced 1996 version of 101 Dalmations. We'll have to wait to see what Stone will bring to the table. The actress has never played a villain before.
