Angelina Jolie Joining Forces With Disney For “Maleficent?”
Oscar winner Angelina Jolie is “keen” on teaming up with Disney producers for a dark revival of the animated classic Sleeping Beauty.
Jolie is turning to the dark side – she’s in talks to cast a spell on the Disney princess. According to The Los Angeles Times, Angelina “would like to sign on to play the titular villain” in Maleficent, a live action remake capturing the perspective of the villainous fairy godmother.
Tim Burton, who recently teamed up with Disney for this spring’s box office hit Alice in Wonderland, is being courted to direct the feature.
Jolie is currently shooting The Tourist with Burton’s frequent collaborator and Alice In Wonderland star Johnny Depp.
