Angelina Jolie May Curse Sleeping Beauty In Maleficent
After the success of Enchanted and now Alice in Wonderland itís no surprise that Disney might be interested in doing more with the live-action fairytale genre. Next up theyíre working on a live-action take on Sleeping Beauty called Maleficent and the LA Times says Tim Burton Angelina Jolie could be involved.
Burtonís potential involvement remains more murky but their sources claim Angelina is interested in playing the villain. If Maleficent sticks with the format laid out by the animated version, then that means Angelina Jolie is a witch who curses Beauty at her birth, predicting sheíll prick herself on a spindle and day. Jolie in the role? I can see it. The movie draws its name given to the evil witch character, in Disneyís 1959 film, so the title seems to suggest sheíll somehow be the focus of this take on the Sleeping Beauty story.
Right now itís all rumor and speculation. Jolieís involvement may hinge on Burtonís involvement and Burtonís involvement is still a complete unknown.
