Emma Stone will be back for more dramatic fashions and dastardly deeds, officially closing a deal to star in the upcoming “Cruella 2.”
News of the sequel’s development broke in early June, just weeks after the live-action adaptation of the Disney animated classic opened in theaters. At the time, “Cruella” director Craig Gillespie and screenwriter Tony McNamara were both expected to return for the new movie, but a deal was not yet done for Stone.

Stone is repped by WME, Anonymous Content and Ziffren Brittenham.
Deadline was first to confirm Stone’s return.
More to come.
