i think she’s be great, but let’s wait and see if this is a rumour or fact, first.

I’m sure the fools will be here soon.

but really Angie makes what about 1 film a year. not counting the animated KFP..

this is what the 3rd or 4 film they have attached her name to. Yeah.. Angie no doubt will have a magazine interview coming out when she promotes Salt. So I hope she will address some of these dumb things. but then why should she.

She is an amazing performer and we have seen time and time again how they attach her name to projects to get buzz.. Wanted 2 anyone.. and what was that other film just a few weeks ago.. now this..

When Angie says so then I will believe.. until then..

She would be perfect! And Jennifer Aniston should play Sleeping Beauty!

OF COURSE I’ll be interested to see that. Angelina is the incarnation of evilness. HA. Woopsies, sorry! I didn’t mean that in a bad way. I think Angelina is gorgeous. She has the face of an evil witch! I don’t know if you guys would understand that without thumbing me down thinking I’m saying that because of her temptress-like evil homewrecking behavior with Aniston. HA. I personally think she has really the physique of someone evil and that she should play villains more often. Her face, her eyes, her look, everything is perfect for that kind of role. Angelina = villain. OMG I can’t wait to see that. Hopefully it’s true! Tim Burton is my favorite director and Angelina playing one of the most evil witches villains of Disney would be amazing to watch! I’m crossing my fingers!!!!!

Yes, she is a gorgeous woman and a great character actress.
Would love to see this story from the villain’s perspective.

It would be great, but i will fully give my opinion when this becomes official, and confirmed. Her name gets used, and attacjed to projects a lot, so…….

CopyCatBrat @ 03/28/2010 at 2:19 pm

Ahh!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea and matchup! It has the potential to be box-office GOLD. Though, I will only believe it when Angie confirms it…

BTW Jared thanks for spoiling us with all of these JP threads lately!

Andamentothat @ 03/28/2010 at 2:22 pm

christyjolie @ 03/28/2010 at 2:23 pm

I love you for wish you the best in your life.

thank god real actresses are back, thank you Angie. and sandy etc. she is gorgeous and talented and she’s perfect for this role.

luvangie4ever @ 03/28/2010 at 2:26 pm

Oh she would make a gorgeous Maleficent! She’s crazy beautiful and sexy. I love how Angie takes risks in her movie roles. She’s a fantastic and captivating actress. I hope this is true, I just can’t get enough of her.

AJ as an evil villain. Hmm… fitting.

Butter_Fly @ 03/28/2010 at 2:28 pm

I kinda like this idea. Burton would be great for this project.

rock_chick_chic @ 03/28/2010 at 2:30 pm

maleficent is by far one of my favourite disney villians, but i dont really think angelina would make a good maleficent. this is kinda like wicked telling the story of the wicked witches life :-)

Elizabeth @ 03/28/2010 at 2:31 pm

@christyjolie: < Me too…
any movie of Angie is worthed. Tks JJ wow 2 pics/news for today…hmmmmmmm spoiling us. Hello to JP fans

Dreads, don’t you get tired of whining about home wrecking craps? It’s been five years and you aren’t JA. Or are you? What’s matter, hon? Those men were not as satisfying as Pitt for you? Too bad as it is too dam.n late. Move the hell on, grow up.

Wow…. a real life witch playing a witch….. PERFECT…. lol ; – )

Pleeeease not this two bit floozy. I was excited about this idea of this movie, but to think she could take one of the major roles… Instant downer. How about Angelica Houston instead?
