The actress says she is on board for ‘Cleopatra’ if they can ‘get the story right’ and would love to work with Tim Burton on ‘Malificent!’

For those of you with any questions on Angelina Jolie‘s upcoming projects today is your lucky day! Our sister site Deadline Hollywood has posted a video of the actress discussing not one, not two, not three, but four of her future film roles! Here is what the Oscar winning actress had to say!

First off is Malificent, the rumored Tim Burton project about the ‘Mistress of All Evil’ in the famous Disney flick Sleeping Beauty. Angie said, “I loved her when I was a little girl, she was my favorite.” For some girls it’s the princesses, for Angelina it’s the wicked queen who curses a newborn child. She also noted, “the chance to work with Tim Burton would be extraordinary.” So we think that’s looking pretty likely.

Next up was Cleopatra, which the actress has already been confirmed for. But hold on, it seems there may be some slight hesitation. She says, “I think if we can get the story right and do the real story. There’s a lot about her that’s not been covered yet … if we can do something original we will.” I am sure the screenwriters will be working overtime to satisfy Angie, the only logical choice for the role, and her comments on the film make me even more excited to see it now.

Then there is Scarpetta, the story of crime solving medical examiner Kay Scarpetta from Patricia Cornwell‘s bestselling series. Though she is rumored to have already signed on she simply notes, “they’re writing a script, in development.” So, somewhat less certain about this one.

Finally there is Serena, a VERY interesting movie from director Darren Aronofsky. Set in the 1920s, she would play a woman who along with her husband established a timber empire. She then learns she cannot bear children and thus sets out to murder the son her husband fathered illigitemately. That too is in development it seems.

So there you have it, the possible next four movies for Ms. Jolie, no doubt further proving her amazing acting ability and eclectic taste in roles!

Check out the clip above and tell us what you think about Angie’s future roles!
