Do you think Angelina is the right choice to play evil fairy Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty?
Can you picture this? Disney is considering remaking the 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty, but this time it would be a live-action film! Angelina Jolie is a rumored choice for the role of evil fairy Maleficent, and Tim Burton might also sign on to direct the film! Tim just directed Disney’s box office-hit remake of Alice and Wonderland, so it wouldn’t be a total stretch. Though there’s no official deal or script yet, rumors are definitely circling!
In case your Disney memory is rusty, Maleficent is the villainess who casts an evil spell on Sleeping Beauty (aka Princess Aurora) causing her to prick herself on a spinning wheel’s spindle on her 16th birthday. The princess falls into a deep sleep, and can only be awakened by the kiss of a prince!
Angelina is currently filming The Tourist in Italy with Johnny Depp, but once that film and her spy drama Salt hit theaters, she’ll be out of gig … so we think the timing would be perfect for her to play the evil fairy godmother!
