Angelina Jolie Does “Maleficent” Next

Speaking at Berlinale to promote “In the Land of Blood and Honey”, actress Angelina Jolie confirmed that Disney’s “Maleficent” will be her next project.

“I haven’t acted in two years, and I haven’t done anything else since this [Land of Blood and Honey]. The next thing I am looking at is a Disney movie” the actress revealed to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Maleficent” is Linda Woolverton’s revisionist take on “Sleeping Beauty” which switches the focus to the evil Queen of the story. The project has taken on a new energy in recent weeks as “Avatar” and “Alice in Wonderland” production designer Robert Stromberg has come onboard to direct.

Jolie was also linked to a Luc Besson movie which was to begin shooting in April but that appears to be no longer the case.
