Angelina Jolie's 'Maleficent' coming in 2014
Posted April 9, 2012
Evil has a release date. Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie as Disney's ultimate villain, is set to be released in theaters March 14, 2014.
The live-action film explores the story of the evil fairy, appropriately named Maleficent, and her role in the curse of Sleeping Beauty. Let's just say she can put people to sleep in a very bad way.
The film will be directed by Robert Stromberg, the two-time Academy Award-winning production designer behind Avatar and Alice in Wonderland.
Jolie has expressed glee about taking on the baddie role when filming begins in June. But she hopes that people see the tale as a complex character portrait.
"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," she told EW. "You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is."
