Cruella Devil Header

Disney’s live-action take on the 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil has a director in sights.

It’s being reported that Craig Gillespie, director of the Academy Award winning I, Tonya and the 2011 Fright Night remake, has entered into negotiations to direct Cruella. The spinoff, which is similar to Disney’s villain-centric Sleeping Beauty spinoff Maleficent, is set to star Oscar winner Emma Stone in the title role.

Walt Disney Studios has released the first teaser trailer for their live-action remake of Aladdin. This follows the release of the teaser poster we saw this week.

The trailer is most definitely a teaser, not showing much at all. But we do get some familiar things in live-action (and sometimes CG) form, set to some familiar music. You can read more about the new Aladdin and check out the first trailer below.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

It’s been announced that Disney is now developing a live-action re-telling of their animated classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, but you already knew that. Or at least assumed it, considering Disney is making new live-action takes on most of their animated movies.

Erin Cressida Wilson, who has worked on the screenplays for Secretary, Chloe, and most recently The Girl on the Train, is in negotiations to write the new Snow White. Marc Platt (Mary Poppins Returns) will produce.

Wicked

The international press tour for Into The Woods is currently in progress, and with the film being a commercial success, journalists are asking producer Marc Platt about his next projects.

One of those projects is a big-screen adaptation of Wicked, which has Stephen Daldry attached to direct and Winnie Holzman penning the script. The musical is actually based on the book of the same name, and focuses on the events before The Wizard of Oz, before Elphaba became the Wicked Witch of the West. Platt hopes to get the film into theaters by 2016, which would mean that he would need to get the project into production sooner rather than later.

More after the jump.

Sweet Valley High

Universal Pictures is in negotiations to acquire the rights to make a feature-length movie based on the popular book series Sweet Valley High. If the deal works out smoothly, the studio already has Juno and Jennifer’s Body writer Diablo Cody in line to pen the adaption. Cody set the project in motion with Mason Novick, who together went looking for the rights and made their pitch to Universal. Cody and Novick would also be producing along with Marc Platt.

Cody has settled into a groove where high school kids are a prime element to her stories. Juno, Jennifer’s Body, and her Showtime series The United States of Tara all have characters who are dealing with that time in their lives, so this would certainly be a fitting project for her, though some may want to see her spread her wings and fly a little.
