In accordance with Deadline, Emma Stone has closed the negotiation to return in her role as Cruella for a second installment despite rumors that the Oscar winner for La La Land: A Love Story supposedly would sue The Walt Disney Company after the premiere of the film simultaneously with the platform of streaming Disney+.

Due to the pandemic, the film directed by Craig Gillespie, It premiered on May 26 in theaters and on Disney + under the Premiere Access modality, grossing more than $ 222 million at the box office worldwide.

What’s more, Deadline ensures that the deal benefits both the actress and the company even though Disney is still evaluating the dynamic window model for its titles or events: “This agreement shows that there can be an equitable path forward that protects artists and studios interests with talent. We hope this opens the door for more members of the creative community to participate in the success of the new platforms. “ said Patrick Whitesell, Endeavor CEO.

Finally, it is almost a fact that the director Craig Gillespie and the scriptwriter Tony McNamara will be back for the second delivery after the first delivery raised about $ 21 million on opening weekend.
