Angelina Jolie: 'Maleficent' Gets a Release Date!

Angelina Jolie‘s upcoming film Maleficent will be released in the United States on March 14, 2014, Walt Disney Studios has announced.

The 36-year-old actress takes on the title role in the live-action film, which “explores the origins of the evil fairy Maleficent and what led her to curse Princess Aurora in Disney’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty.”

Elle Fanning could share the big screen with Angie – she’s reportedly in talks to play Aurora.

“It’s a really great script. I’m having a lot of fun,” Angelina previously said about the project. “I’ve already got my horns fitted. My kids are very happy….It sounds really crazy to say that there will be something that’s good for young girls in this, because it sounds like you’re saying they should be a villain. [Maleficent] is actually a great person. But she’s not perfect. She’s far from perfect.”

@adel:

Unless you have read the script, or helped write it, you have no idea HOW the character is being portrayed, now do ya? So I would think that A Jolie has a better grasp on this character in this particular film than you do. Now, go run along and play with something sparkly.

I wish it was coming out earlier. She’s going to be magnificent.

Love you angie, brad and kids. Haven’t seen any pics of them lately – miss seen them all.

@adel

you obviously failed your remedial reading classes. if you hadn’t then you would understand when Angelina said “It’s a really great script. I’m having a lot of fun”. just for you; ANGELINA Read THE SCRIPT. therefore, she knows what is going to happen in the story. now, please go and find your mother because i doubt she knows that her little child is playing on the computer.

@adel:

Haters can be so obtuse sometimes.

Great news. I only wish it were earlier realease date but she and Brad have a lot going on. Miss seeing pics of the family but I hope they are enjoying their time out of the spotlight. Love the JP’s and especially Angie.

Now here’s a movie that needs to be made and we all want to see! Go Ange!

so excited i guess we cannot have great angie news without a fake x news of a movie that never happens or a dud in the making come on jared you can do better

@deja vu:

When you make a comment please try to be informed.. Julia and Charlize made movies about the same characters in Snow White

Maleficent is about Sleeping Beauty. If you had actually read the thread you would not have made an idiotic comment. but then you would not have been the idiot you are.

and Julia and Charlize don’t have a monopoly on Live Action Fairy Tales.
Angie can play any role she wants and will be doing this one.

This is so exciting! 2014 cannot come soon enough. I bet Angelina will be deliciously evil and sexy.

@The Real Deal: Thank you because I was thinking the same thing. I’m sure they will change certain things to polish up the movie and characters.

2014? That is a long time between film releases. If she was another actress one could hope she would do an additional film and that it might get released sooner. But we know Angie and unless unforeseen circumstances dictate otherwise she won’t take on another role so soon after Maleficent. Oh well, it just means we’ll be seeing a lot of “on-site” pics instead I suppose.

2014 ???!!! Why not sooner?

@Des:

Most likely because of CGI effects, takes awhile to do those.
