When we leave Cruella, at the end of director Craig Gillespie’s origin pic, she’s only just beginning her journey as a Dalmatian-scouring rogue.
Begs the question then, might we see a sequel to the film?
Collider quizzed Gillespie (“I, Tonya”, “Pam and Tommy”) on whether he feels there’s more of Cruella’s story to tell.
“I feel like we’ve only just met her. I’d love to now see the full-blown Cruella, fully loaded. She’s managed to get the support system around her and she can really expand on her brand. I’d love to see where that takes her and how you could almost destroy her from inside out, if she’s not careful with all that power.
Gillespie says he’d be down to direct, if he was able to court the same cast to return.
“If it was with this gang. It was such a joy to work with everybody, and Tony writing it, and Disney was so supportive. They really fostered a feeling of safety where we could just really go for it without the repercussions. We all were pushing it all the time and thinking, “I don’t know if Disney’s gonna be okay with this,” but they would always call and be okay.”
“Cruella” is now in select theaters and available for a fee to watch on Disney+.
