Since it was announced in 2009, Angelina Jolie has been attached to star in the title role of the live action vision of Maleficent - based on the popular sorceress from the Sleeping Beauty story. Much more recently, Disney hired a director for their take on the story. Now, Jolie herself has suggested that the movie may be her next acting project.

While speaking at a crowded press conference Saturday at the Berlin Film Festival, Jolie brought up Maleficent when asked about the future of her career.

"I haven't acted in two years, and I haven't done anything else since this [In The Land of Blood and Honey]. The next thing I am looking at is a Disney movie," said the actress. Jolie also expressed interest in starring in the film a couple months ago, when she said that her kids wanted her to make it.

Robert Stromberg (production designer for Avatar) will helm the project in his directorial debut. Do you think Angelina Jolie is a good choice for the title role in Maleficent? Share your thoughts below in the usual place.

she needs to gain some weight she's unbelievably thin. But this should be interesting but it looks like re-imagining fairy tales is the new craze in hollywood(Snow White and the Huntsman looks promising, minus kristen stewart obviously).

Epic! I loved this movie as a kid

@Hellsing- Don't forget that new red riding hood movie, it looked pretty lame though

Sounds great.

Hopefully they do justice for the character.

Maleficent needs to be scary!:P

@LP4 I think its best if we try and forget that piece of crap! damn that was terrible even an actor like Gary Oldman could'nt improve that movie.

Angelina will be an amazing Maleficent ! <3
I hope they go for the darker root, Angelina is perfect in the darker, more damaged roles.

I have known about this film way before it was posted on here....

AND, I am so happy!

By far the BEST Disney movie!
And, I hate HATE Disney! But, Sleeping Beauty was amazing, if I may say!

If they add the great "Beauty"....TAMSIN EGERTON MUST PLAY HER:

I also would not mind Emma Watson!
I would like to see a Brit take on the role!

That's perfect casting. ANgie has gotten older and Skinnier, so she's almost creepy now,but still hot. Perfect for an ageing bitch.
ClarkFarley2012 - 2/11/2012, 11:10 AM
Excellent choice
CherryBomb - 2/11/2012, 11:27 AM
All hail Angelina! <3

Shit , i hope this doesn't detour her as a possible candidate to play Evil Lynn in the "EVENTUALLY GONNA HAPPEN FOLKS" He-man & The Masters of the Universe movie....been envisioning her in that role for a while.

Stupid sleeping beauty movie, blah.....Nuff Said !

Either Angelina or Charlize Theron.

Oarsis - 2/11/2012, 2:43 PM

She is so damn sexy!
I loved her in 'Camelot' and '1234'! Wonderful young actress!

Angelina Jolie would be good as Maleficent but I think Michelle Pfeiffer would be perfect.

You can thank myself an Tweeeekies for this project.

Make the 3 fairies cool and we got ourselves a blockbuster!

Oarsis - 2/11/2012, 3:33 PM
@headlopper...We caused this to happen...We are Gods!

Just sayin'...Everyone is now jealous!

I think the "fairies", should be more like wise women, who can see the future, or give "gifts...Not gay fairy women haha!
And, I also had the idea, where they go from older to younger!
Like, having someone old olay the wisest, someone middle aged play the kindest, having someone young play the fun loving one...

Angelina Jolie would be great as Maleficent. I hope she works out a deal.

@tweeeeenkies I haven't heard of her until you mentioned her. I could see her as Sleeping Beauty though.
headlopper - 2/11/2012, 4:38 PM
@tweeeeenkies3- H-haaa! We are worthy!

About the fairies- that's a very good suggestion!
To be honest, I couldn't figure out what to do with them, but that suggestion would work.
Yeah, make the human-like, with enchanted powers and different personalities. Sounds good!
We're off to a good start here!

Are you listening Disney?!!

Oarsis - 2/11/2012, 7:09 PM
@mgeoff88...She is a great actress!

@headlopper...Imagine if they used that!
I would be amazed! I thought it sounded like a good idea!

She actually looks like that witch...

Good casting if she gets the role...
