Angelina Jolie Keen On Being “Maleficent”?

Angelina Jolie is apparently interested in taking on the villainous lead role in “Maleficent” for Disney Pictures says The Los Angeles Times.

Last week came word that Linda Woolverton (“Beauty and the Beast”) would pen the script which is described as a “post-modern family adventure” centring around the evil Queen who served as the main antagonist in Disney’s 1959 animated classic “Sleeping Beauty”.

Jolie is “very interested” in taking on the project according to the paper’s sources. Tim Burton has been linked as a potential director for a few months now, but no deals are in place with anyone.
