De Vil, who will be played by Stone in the new movie, is the villain who was obsessed with capturing the puppies in the 1961 animated classic "101 Dalmatians".
It is currently unknown where this movie will pick up in de Vil's timeline, as is the role Thompson would be playing.
Tony McNamara penned the most recent version of the script with Dana Fox writing a previous draft. Disney recently announced the film would be released on December 23, 2020, signalling the project's pre-production.
This wouldn't be the first time that Thompson has taken a role in one of Disney's live-action adaptations.
