First Look At Angelina Jolie in ‘Maleficent’
The actress reveals a menacing look as the Mistress of Evil from the classic fairytale, ‘Sleeping Beauty’.
Disney has released a first-look photo of Angelina Jolie in Maleficent, which tells the story of the Mistress of Evil, the villain from Sleeping Beauty. The studio has promised that the film will reveal the events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora.
The film's been knocking around for years - with Tim Burton rumoured to be attached at one point - but the reigns were eventually handed over to Oscar-winning production designer, Robert Stromberg (Avatar, Alice In Wonderland), who will make his directorial debut with the role.
Joining Jolie (who will also executive produce) in the film is Elle Fanning as Aurora/Sleeping Beauty, Sam Riley, Sharlto Copley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
There's a while to wait still as the film isn't slated for release until 2014.
