Angelina Jolie to Portray Maleficent?


Just a couple days ago we reported that Linda Woolverton would team up with Disney once again to bring back one of their most popular villians Maleficent to the screen. This of course coming after the huge success the scribe had with Alice In Wonderland 3D. Today some interesting news is coming from the LA Times.

According to the site Angelina Jolie and Tim Burton had at one point been attached to the project. So the question is out there if she will return given her interest in the project. What is a question mark however is whether she will return to it if Tim Burton does not. So for now this is probably best filed under wait and see.

"Maleficent" will be a live-action take on the evil queen in the 1959 animated classic "Sleeping Beauty." Woolverton's "Maleficent" movie would tell the classic fairy tale from the point of view of the self-proclaimed "Mistress of All Evil," offering a new take on a classic tale as she did with Lewis Carrol's "Alice."
