‘Maleficent’ Starts Filming In June With Angelina Jolie; Elle Fanning In Talks
  |  @   |  

Last we heard of the Walt Disney retelling of their animated classic Sleeping Beauty, titled Maleficent, was word back in January that a director had been chosen in Robert Stromberg.

Now comes word that the movie is just about ready to begin production, with filming now scheduled to start in June.

Angelina Jolie stars in the live-action movie, which, as the title indicates, will tell the Sleeping Beauty fable from the point of the villainess Maleficent.

It’s also been reported that Super 8 star Elle Fanning is in talks for the movie, in which she would play the role of Aurora, the princess that would be known as a sleeping beauty.

Director Stromberg makes his directorial debut with Maleficent, but has master of art direction and visual effects for years. Stromberg won art direction Oscars for his work on James Cameron’s Avatar and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. His visual effects work includes Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, The Golden Compass, and HBO series John Adams, The Pacific, and Boardwalk Empire.

Linda Woolverton penned the screenplay.
