Angelina Jolie to Play Evil Queen in Sleeping Beauty

Angelina Jolie has found herself the perfect role….playing the evil queen Maleficent in the new live-action version of Sleeping Beauty. I’m not saying Angelina Jolie is evil, per se, I’m just saying, this casting decision makes a lot of sense.

The film is being called “Maleficent” and is set to be the story of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty as told from the evil queen’s position.

“It’s not anti-princess,” Jolie told Entertainment Weekly, “But it’s the first time they’re looking at this epic woman….I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many thing, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities.”

Is it just me, or did Angelina Jolie just describe herself? Verdict still out on exactly what Angelina’s “warmer” qualities are…

The flick will release in March of 2014, but Jolie says she begins filming soon.

“I start it in June, and it’s a really great script. I’m having a lot of fun. I’ve already got my horns fitted. My kids are very happy,” says Jolie.

It’s about time Angelina got some acting work! Give the kids a nanny and get back to work! The last role Angelina did was in “The Tourist” and that is not the kind of legacy you want to leave behind.
