I think there’s a lot more to Emma Stone’s capabilities than you’re giving her credit for. She was worried, early in her career, about getting type cast into the typical love interest role, so she intentionally sought out more challenging parts to play. And it’s paid off, considering how decorated she is.
I’m not too sure how I feel about the concept of a Cruella story with a punk vibe, but I am interested in seeing how Emma plays the role. I think she could make it entertaining at least.
