Alex Timbers In Talks To Direct "Cruella" Starring Emma Stone

Deadline is reporting The latest twist in the Alex Timbers/Disney saga is news that the acclaimed Broadway director/writer and co-creator of Amazon’s Mozart In The Jungle is negotiating to direct Cruella at Disney. Emma Stone, who received both a Golden Globe and SAG nomination this week for her role in La La Land, has been attached for a while in the live-action re-imagining of the villain’s tale from the children’s classic 101 Dalmatians.

The studio wants to start production on the origin story of Cruella De Vil early next year from the most recent script, penned by Jez Butterworth. The feature is to be produced by Andrew Gunn and Marc Platt.

This news about Timbers, a two-time Tony nominated writer and director and artistic director of Les Freres Corbusie, comes after he and Disney parted ways last summer over the Broadway-bound adaptation of Frozen — a project he was to direct. Cruella keeps Timbers in the Disney fold, at least on the West Coast side.

Timbers hasn’t wanted for work. He’s about to begin rehearsals at the Public Theater with Joan of Arc: Into The Fire, his second collaboration with Talking Heads’ David Byrne after the huge hit Here Lies Love about Imelda Marcos. He navigated the successful Broadway opening a few weeks ago of Oh, Hello On Broadway, the transfer of the popular cable comedy Oh, Hello. He had a financial flop with the Broadway musical version of Rocky, but also won acclaim for staging Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and co-directing the Tony winning Peter And The Starcatcher with Roger Rees. He’s working with Baz Luhrmann on the stage adaptation of Moulin Rouge.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
