For some actors and actresses there are certain roles they were born to play, and based on our first look at Disney's Maleficent, Angelina Jolie was born to play the evil fairy godmother in the fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty.
The studio released the first image of Jolie as the title character and it looks like Disney is harking back to the villian's look from the 1959 animated classic, horns and all. "The horns are the horns — you can’t deny them," Jolie said in an interview. "You have to have horns."
But unlike the Disney cartoon, this fairy retelling is told from the point of view of Maleficent, the villainous fairy, though according to Jolie, the character isn't all evil.
I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities. You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is. check out Hollywood Dailies' clip about Jolie in Maleficent >> Posted 06.19.12 by Chris
Move over vampires and zombies, the age of the live-action fairytale has taken over as Hollywood's latest obsession. Two live action Snow White movies are set to to arrive this year — Universal Studios' Snow White and the Huntsman and Relativity Media's Mirror, Mirror. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is set to spoof the Brothers Grimm tale early next year after being delayed from March until January 2013. Now Disney, which started the trend with 2010's blockbuster Alice in Wonderland, is developing a life-action version of Sleeping Beauty titled Maleficent and yet another riff on Snow White.
Maleficient will focus on the Disney villainess as the lead character and has had Angelina Jolie attached to play the role since 2009. While Jolie was reportedly set to start work on an untitled thriller with director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, La Femme Nikita, The Professional) in April, it looks like that will have to wait for Maleficient. "I haven't acted in two years [since 2010's The Tourist], and I haven't done anything else since this [directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey]. The next thing I am looking at is a Disney movie," Jolie told THR. ronan to play a kung fu-fighting Snow white >> Posted 02.14.12 by Ryan
