Angie Wants To Be Maleficent!

This is very good news for Tim Burton. Actually, it's really good news for everyone at Disney.

Because we just can't see Helena Bonham Carter pulling this one off.

There was a rumor floating around a few months ago that the acclaimed director, who just reworked the classic Alice in Wonderland, was now looking ahead to his next project and was hoping to cast Angelina Jolie in the starring role.

And Angie is totally game!

When asked if she would consider playing the villain Maleficent in a reworked spin-off of Sleeping Beauty, Angie replied:

"I would love to. It's all new and being discussed, but I loved her when I was a little girl. She was my favorite. Tim Burton, the chance to work with him would be extraordinary."

Sounds like a yes to us! Everybody pull out their Hollywood schedules and lets make this work!

    Helena Bonham Carter is Oscar nominated and has played a huge amount of very different roles. Jolie can only play one type. The Bad girl, pouty ass kicking etc… To compare their acting ability is like comparing Meryl Streep and that Hayden chick from "Heros". Go through a list of Jolie's movies, she always plays the same part.

    tired of this crap, alice was enough we don't need tim burton esque reboots of everything; its old



  3. 3

    Right, this is SUCH good news for EVERYONE!!! Because Angelina Jolie is SOOOOOO relevant. Who gives a shit what this untalented bitch does?

    Tim Burton needs to be stopped before he destroys all of our favorite childhood movies!!!!!! Tho I love his style and his unique mind, I am sick to death of all of these mediocre, re-hashed stories! Do something original! You have enough money now, you can stop selling out and start making something new!! The world calls to you Tim Burton, we call and we ask, PLEASE, PLEASE do something different. Think of the children man..THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!

    I am going to have to disagree. I love Sleeping Beauty, in fact it was my favorite Disney movie growing up, but i think that Helena Bonham Carter would do a much MUCH better job as Maleficent! She has an eeriness to her that would really work excellently with whom Maleficent really is.



  6. 6

    I wont watch it. Refuse to watch a movie in which she has some sort of role…



  7. 7

    Gee, something Angie says is a 'yes' to you? Shocking.



  8. 8

    Sleeping Beauty is one of the best stories im so excited!!



  9. 9

    she'd be perfect for the part since she also plays a bitch in real life. the only thing it means to me is i won't be seeing this tim burton movie



  10. 10

    Helen Bonham Carter sucks donkey balls. The only roles she gets are in her husband's films. She is like the modern day version of Pia Fucking Zadora. Angie for the win!



  11. 11

    That would be awesome!!! I absolutely adore Angie!



  12. 12

    I generally don't like Angie's acting but SLeeping Beauty was and still is my favorite Disney movie, Maleficent was my favorite villian and….I'm okay with this?? But Tim Burton better not fuck this up the way he's been.



  13. 13

    LOVE HER AND LOVE THIS IDEA



  14. 14

    I could TOTALLY!!!!!!! see her do that. Why is seeing her play such a black character so fitting????



  15. 15

    she plays a great psycho bitch, that's for sure. And I do think she's a great actress, who picks retarded ass roles a lot. Did NOT buy her in that one movie… what was it? She had the curly hair? Anyway she sucked in that. Didn't like Bone collector, life or something like it, or that Ethan Hawke movie. But she was great in Alexander, beowulf, gia and girl interuppted. yay



  16. 16

    Of course she would love it.. wicked comes easy for her.. Angelina is a loser! Wish she would go away already.



  17. 17

    FemaleFilmMajor, LOLZ.



  18. 18

    I'd rather not see Burton go an Burtonize another story, but if he does - he should stick with an actress who can actually act. Like Bonham-Carter. Jolie has no range or depth.



  19. 19

    i love sleeping beauty having AJ in it would ruin it for me!!!!!! go away you talentless homewrecking whore!!!



  20. 20

    She would be perfect for the role. All of you who waste your time on here calling people nasty names need to seriously get a life, it's getting old.



  21. 21

    Re: stupidlamb666
    haha i agree



  22. 22

    shes waaaay to old for the part. also tim burton is so early 90s.



  23. 23

    oh, now i see she would be up for the villian. then thats a good choice.



  24. 24

    And i just lost interest in that movie.



  25. 25

    Re: Spindoc – Really- Name her movies? action flicks were Tomb Raider, Mr & Mrs Smith & Wanted (completely different!), dramas were Girl Interrupted Beyond Borders & Gia (not the same), plus shes done animated films & more! Angelina seems like the BEST role for the movie- plus im sure more people would want to see it & publicity for it would be better too :D And for everyone else who thinks she cant act- she must be able too if shes gotten an Oscar & been nominated, plus received other awards



  26. 26

    I actually think that she'd be absolutely perfect for the role.



  27. 27

    Why is this exciting? As far as I know, she always been maleficent, ever since she started stealing husbands and being a c**t……



  28. 28

    I don't give a crap what anyone says, I rather enjoyed Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland"; just watched it again the other day and will now be purchasing the Blu Ray. It was pretty to look at and it's humor was subtle. Depp's scottish accent is improving and he has learned to use it more sparingly. The cheshire cat was my favorite, though, with his cute obsession with the Mad Hatter's hat. I've even heard it said that the message was feminist but I didn't find it overly feminist…Alice chose not to marry a sniveling toad just because everyone else wanted her to. She chose to wait for love and in the meantime apply her talents at her father's former company.



  29. 29

    Helena Bonham-Carter for Maleficent! FINAL WORD! She would do a better job



  30. 30

    she is NOT a homewrecking slut. Brad wanted all the things Angelina represents. He fell in love with her wanting to help children and people all over the world.

    He fell out of love with Anniston because she was a narcissistic woman who will never have a baby because she doesn't want to wreck her body….who only cared about becoming a movie star. So now she gets 20 mill a pic and no one goes to them!

  31. I.Z. says – reply to this


    31

    She is sick in the head.



  32. 32

    i'd watch helena over angie any day of the week
    Re: Brainbug – umm how about harry potter just to name one.



  33. 33

    She isn't good enough to be in his films. If she is cast for this it will be a shame and I will lose faith in Tim Burton forever. This home-wrecking slut needs to stick to her typical roles that no longer make good sales in the box office. She is getting old and is shit now.



  34. 34

    I think either her or Helena could play Maleficent tbh. Leaning towards Helena though…



  35. 35

    helena bonham carter would do better



  36. 36

    Re: Spindoc – You are quite right toward Helena Bonham Carter, yet Angelina Jolie is an Academy Award Winner and has been nominated twice (for Girl Interrupted (which she won) and Changeling) she has talent, and those roles weren't exactly the mean kick-ass girl she usually plays. She has her style, such as Bonham Carter whom i should say is also a Terrific actress, her roles in movies such as in Sweeney Todd and Harry Potter and The wings of the dove (for which she was nominated) are marvelous, she's incredible at performing roles of the Evil Powerful Woman. They both have talent to the extreme, and honestly I would love to see how Angelina pulls a role like this (I'm not as excited as Perez (he overreacts)) but it will definitely be a good experience. And wow, haha you just killed Hayden Panettiere haha. There's no possible way of comparing Meryl Streep with absolutely any other living actress globally.



  37. 37

    Cool if it would be a PG version her kids could watch.



  38. 38

    Helena Bonham Carter is a much better actor than Angie will ever be
    Still love you Angie but the truth is the truth



  39. 39

    Helena Bonham Carter would be better cast as one of the short portly fairy godmothers.. flora, fuana or merrywether then as Maleficent. Jolie will do since Burton burned the bridges with his ex Lisa Marie..she would have been good as Malificent. But Jolie is an upgrade in studio opinion.. it means a wider market appeal.
