Directors Chosen for ‘Maleficent’
Disney has seen some of their stories come to life recently in the film world. From television with Once Upon A Time to the big screen with the two hyped Snow White movies, Mirror, Mirror (Relativity Media) and Snow White and the Huntsman (Universal Pictures), Disney classics are becoming live-action blockbusters. And the trend will continue with another Disney favorite, Sleeping Beauty.
Disney has named Robert Stromberg, production designer on Avatar and Alice in Wonderland, as director for the new film called: Maleficent. The project tells the fairy tale from the evil witch Maleficent’s perspective as she threatens to kill the princess. Rumor has it the role is being crafted with Angelina Jolie in mind, although the actress is not officially committed. That would be an amazing catch for the dark Disney character.
