HN Entertainment has been able to confirm that Disney’s live-action Cruella origin film starring Emma Stone will be shot at Shepperton Studios in Surrey, England.
The film’s working title will be simply Outfit, a nod to Cruella’s eye for fashion.
Last month, I revealed on Twitter that Emma Thompson had closed her deal to take a role in Disney the film (Variety first reporting Emma being in early talks back in May). Thompson recently playing Mrs. Potts in the billion-dollar hit Beauty and The Beast.
