The latest Disney villain to get the origin story treatment is 101 Dalmations’ Cruella de Vil. Emma Stone will be playing the lead in the upcoming movie.

Craig Gillespie, who directed I, Tonya, is taking on the new project, aptly named Cruella. There will be an interesting twist to the timeline of this story, however. While the original movie takes place in the 1960s, the new film will be set in the early ’80s. Yes, that totally means that we get to see Stone play a punk version of Cruella de Vil. How awesome is that!?

No news yet on when to expect the release date.
