Emma Stone has closed a deal to star in the sequel to Disney+ release Cruella. The move is significant being that it comes amid the turmoil caused by Scarlett Johansson’s lawsuit against Disney over her compensation for Black Widow, which like Cruella, debuted day-and-date in theaters and on Disney+.
To date, the film has earned $85 million at the domestic box office and $221 million at the global.
Emma Stone: “Hey Disney, Scarlett Johansson is suing you. Maybe I should as well.”
Disney: “We will give you a Cruella 2.”
Emma Stone: “What lawsuit?”
