Maleficent Update: Two More Cast Alongside Angelina Jolie

| Filed under: Angelina JolieFilm Flickers

Angelina Jolie In Maleficent With Imelda Staunton And Miranda Richardson

Miranda Richardson and Imelda Staunton have been cast in Maleficent, a live-action retelling of Sleeping Beauty given the "Wicked treatment."

Angelina Jolie plays the evil misunderstood Maleficent, the arch-enemy to young Elle Fanning’s narcoleptic Princess Aurora.

The newcomers will play Knotglass and Flittle, two of Aurora’s three guardian pixies.

Sounds cray cray!! (Also, we thought their names were Flora, Fauna and Merryweather???)

Staunton is best known for her 2004 portrayal of Vera Drake and Richardson currently stars in Ridley & Tony Scott’s epic Starz miniseries World Without End.

Hopefully it'll be as cool as Snow White & The Huntsman, but we won’t know for sure until March, 2014!

    More than likely, with Linda Woolverton writing it, she's given the faeries full names, like she did with all the characters in Alice in Wondderland.

    God, Jolie is so smug and annoying. Plastic surgery hotness.

    Better fun fact about these 2 new additions:
    Richardson played Rita Skeeter in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and Staunton was Dolores Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
    Because they are British and therefore required to be in HP.
    Also, I care far more about all these other people than Angelina Jolie.

    Ugh I would be excited about this movie if it didn't have Angelina Jolie in it.

    The ultimate Hollywood skank.

    Angelina Jolie isn't a talented actress, maybe the other actors can save the project. Angelina had one successful role, playing herself - a crazy drug addict.

    Re: Deja Vu – If she has no talent why is she one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood.

    Re: Deja Vu – Good to know your talent in critizing Angie while your account is -ve. You have done that for more than seven years but have not seen Angie dropping to B-lister actress or her earnings. She's been one of the most powerful women, Highest paid actress, UN Special Envoy,
    Director, Successful Academy winning Actress and most important a fiancee to one, sexiest man alive. Time to crawl to the dark corner with your jealous and get lost!

    Maleficent is my favorite disney villainess of all time. It pains me that Angelina is involved with this project at all.
    The HP actresses are talented…hopefully they'll prevent my childhood from being ruined.

    Angie is an awesome actress as well as the highest paid one as of last year. People clamor to work with her. I want to see the movie just because of her. She sells movies on her own and doesn't need an ensemble cast, yet is still the first to credit others for her success.

    Re: Deja Vu
    one award from people's choice or such may warrant saying it was a fluke and she isn't a good actress, yet she won more awards then just from that one movie. She has 3 Golden Globes, a Hollywood Actress of the Year award, an Oscar, a Saturn, several Blockbuster, Screen Actor Guild, and on and on with many other awards and nurmerous nomintations. Don't let your personal opinion cloud up the facts.
