Angelina Jolie's Director for 'Maleficent 2' Revealed!

Angelina Jolie will be reprising the role of Maleficent in an upcoming sequel and the film’s director was just revealed!

Joachim Ronning is in talks to direct the movie. He previously helmed Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, so he’s already part of the Disney family.

The plot for the film has not yet been revealed. Production is set to begin in the first quarter of 2018, according to Deadline.

The first Maleficent movie made $758.5 million worldwide during its run in theaters. We can’t wait for the second!

    The timing is wrong. Don’t know how she could do it, unless Bride is just a small part of the 1st movie.

    I agree. So well prepared. That’s a woman for you. Lying creep! No shame at all.

    We fans need to have faith. Angelina did not make this film for the awards, the are just the gravy. She has earned her spot as a great Director . The rest is up to Hollywood politics.

    That list is not official. That is the submission list made by the countries. In the next few days, the Academy will say what movies are eligible or not. We still do not know if FTKMF will be in the official list or not. That is the first big hurdle. Since the movie was in released also in theatres for more than a week it is already eligible for all the other categories. Even if they do not consider it eligible for the BFL one. We should be real. At this point the BFL slot is the one the movie has more chances to get a nomination. A substantial part of the Academy do not like Netflix, so it’s going to be extremely difficult to any Netflix movie to get a BP, BD nomination.
    I do not think Angie is concerned about that. She already got what she wanted. A critically acclaimed movie that is been available to audiences all over the World by a streaming platform.

    This is the World’s Largest Star Sapphire (and It’s Named After Angelina Jolie)

    Beverly Hills jewelry designer Robert Procop unveils an 888-carat star sapphire.

    By Carolyn Meers on October 3, 2017
    On October 5, legendary Beverly Hills-based jewelry designer Robert Procop will debut the world’s largest GIA-certified star sapphire at Saks Fifth Avenue at South Coast Plaza in Orange County, California.

    This smoke-hued black star sapphire has a central bright spot that emits shimmering rays outward—the term for this effect is asterism, from the Latin word astrum (for “star”) and occurs in just a handful of gems.

    Weighing in at a stunning 888.88 carats, the Star of Angelina—named for actress, film maker and philanthropist Angelia Jolie—anchors a necklace that includes 70 additional black star sapphires, all set in 18-karat rose gold. The gem was sourced from a mine in Queensland, Australia’s Anakie Sapphire Fields, and the Star of Angelina is priced at $5,000,000.

    The necklace will be accompanied by 10 new pieces from Procop and Jolie’s Exceptional Jewels collection; proceeds from sales will be donated to charity. Following its debut in Southern California, the necklace will be displayed at Saks Fifth Avenue locations in Bal Harbour, Florida and Palm Desert, California, concluding at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. this December.

    Ok. Even if I hate the person who gave me this piece of jewellery- I’d wear it.


  • gemdiamond

    I’m with U, Lylian 👉👉👉 I, 2 would definitely wear it, no matter how much I hate the particular giver!!!

  • bap

    Thanks Neer! Great news the money goes to charity.

    Beautiful. The jewelry and the person it is named for.

  • ali7

    America your systems flawed, why elect DA and judges?

    And after the case was dropped, Kasowitz then continued giving donation to Cy Vance.

    Another reason I loathe elected DAs (and elected judges, for that matter). The conflicts of interest can be staggering.

    First They Killed My Father Thank you, Ilaria. Your words are spot on. We are grateful for all the support for this film, but also, we are grateful that this movie is touching so many hearts: those of people who know this story all too well and those of people who are not familiar with it.

    Cory Ann Vernon It’s a beautiful movie, and a beautiful country full of beautiful smiling people. I have called Cambodia “home” for 13 years. Recovery was slow until recently. The movie is a powerful reminder. I love Cambodia!

    Deanna Miron It’s a phenomenal masterpiece. I put my hand on my heart, even thinking about it. It’s so important that Loung Ung’s story was told, that beautiful Cambodians have been given their voices, with love, respect, compassion, and dignity. It’s was so cour…See More

    Deanna Miron This clip, just made me cry, a feeling of compassion, and happiness that Angie brought this to the screen – that Loung told her story, beautiful Cambodians are no longer silenced. It’s so true about the power of art. 👏❤👏❤👏❤🏆☝.

    Sophana Daneth Yes, that’s right first they killed my father too and one year later, they killed my three brothers and my mom exceeded me. But they also asked me for three time, do you miss your mother? If you miss your mother and your family I can bring you to meet and living with them, then I said no if I said yes they will kill me too.

    Christine O’Rourke Riveting movie that does the book justice despite the fact that many of the most powerful scenes are not included. Unbelievable how it captures the horrors of the Khmer Rouge through the eyes of the author as a little girl, without graphic violence. A great film.

    I haven’t read the whole case against Ivanka and Jnr by tbhave a question:

    Can Mueller use it to threaten Ivanka and Jnr now in some way? The AG of NY has changed?

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Morning all.


    Another reason for the sudden NY pap pr walks?

    Just check out the latest Outta Touch cover.

    A coincidence you say?


    But maybe that’s just me …

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Did anyone see this?

    Mueller Tasks an Adviser With Getting Ahead of Pre-Emptive Pardons

    -Dreeben defended more than 100 U.S. cases to Supreme Court
    -Criminal law expert could bulletproof Mueller team’s work

    See article at site:


    The Grand Master is staying on it. And making sure he can block every possible exit.

    I was at another site, and some people think this indicates that Mueller thinks he has a case or cases.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Oh, nice to see that Angie is coming out with more pieces from her Jewelry Collection.

    I had been wondering if she was still working on that.


    I always thought it was such a nice couple symmetry that she has her jewelry collection, and he has his furniture collection.

    He’s a primary producer; she’s a primary director.

    Shall we take bets as to how much longer Tillerson lasts?

    Somebody is trying to push him out.

    Just a question of who and why.

  • Christina

    With the right script she can do and pull off anything. My understanding is BOF will come after Malifecent but I believe they are still working on script. ?? I cant see her being the main character in a small bit role.

  • toastie postie

    The guy said they start in Feb – with Bride. Angie said she starts with Maleficent early next year 2018 – they are right at the same time.

  • Lady Valeria

    LOL. I like the necklace.

  • toastie postie

    I pray it is so. Our country is going downhill to the level of worse than a 3rd world country in morals.

  • Lady Valeria

    LOL, I did not even like the first one! I thought it was only special because of the special effects. Other than that, the story was meh and Sam Worthington was awful.

  • toastie postie

    He has that right. Don’t like the creep but he is the only one keeping us from being blown up, it seems. He may last to Christmas – hopefully we will all get a big Christmas present and have Dumpster and Pence out. Who is 3rd? Whoever, he probably is rotten also.

  • Lady Valeria

    I didn’t get to see it, but I’ve liked all of the POTC films. Can’t help it. I will always be a fan, even though they are getting repetitive.

  • Lady Valeria

    JA and JT? Is she trying to remind us how small her part in Dumplin’ is? Because it’s not working. I just remembered that she was filming earlier.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    So, Tillerson calls a press conference …

    but doesn’t deny calling the moron a moron …

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    While we pray for survival, the Dimwits have got to get it together.

    2018 is almost here.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    I am only referring to the leach because the bought husband is irrelevant to the tabs, and her fan base, if truth be told.

    I am referring to the latest In Touch cover that has Brad “running” back to the Deadend.

    Which by the way her “rep” denied to Gossip Crap.

    Now why would Huvane waste his time on denying this crap?

    Unless …

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    I may not like them, but I do believe some of these folks, McMaster, Mattis, Kelly, Tillerson, are trying to hang tight because they have seen the horror up close.

    And it wouldn’t surprise me if some of them are working with Mueller, on the down low, because they want this over as well.

  • Lady Valeria

    Honestly–and not even being bitchy………..I think Brad would rather have had only one year with Angelina and the kids vs. the 7 he spent with Jennifer. He honestly, just from reading/watching his reviews, his work, etc………..seemed kind of bored, lost, and unsure.

  • toastie postie

    I think it was Mattis, who said off the record, but it was recorded, to some troops to hang tight through this. As if Dumpster’s time would pass and we would get back our humanity.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    I agree.

    Despite what went done in the last year before the break, I don’t think he would ever consider going back to the waste of his life with the Deadend versus the EPIC life he created with Angie and their children.

    He himself said he thought he was set for life before things went south.

  • toastie postie

    They are just as much at fault. Dimwits who rolled over and played dead.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Yeah, I remember you bringing that over.

    I think it was Mattis. It was coded, but we all knew what he meant.

  • Lady Valeria

    And girl you know if Brad breathed in her direction she’d make sure to at least be seen. This is someone who only realized less than 3 years ago how pathetic it was that she kept bringing up her ex’s family–when she wanted to play with the big boys. But even then she only stopped for about 3 interviews, if we’re being honest. can’t even say for as long as it took her to realize she DIDN’T get that Oscar nom. But I think she is swinging back in the direction that all publicity is good publicity…….like meh on “denying” from Gossip Cop………I’d believe Huvane did deny. Or didn’t deny it and GC is making shit up. But yea. Just wait.

    Another reason why I want B&A back together. I think literal heads would explode in her house……….emergency goddess circle sessions (no literally……I can imagine her actually being pretty pissed off over Brad’s GQ interview saying he wanted to cling to Angelina, when he really really did not want to be married to her anymore. I mean, I think it’s different because they have kids and have a lot more history, but yea. It still would sting. especially him admitting that, while he basically ran for the hills with her as soon as it was socially acceptable)……..Chelsea Handler would be her bestest frenemy again………

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    I don’t know what their deal is.

    The Rethugs aren’t going to just implode or roll over.

    The Dimwits are going to have to go to war to take back those houses of Congress.

  • toastie postie

    Oh? Was he asked?

  • toastie postie

    There was one race that we might have won, but the poor guy had to do it on his own – the DNC did not spend any money in his race and he barely lost. I can’t remember what state that was.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    I don’t have time to look for it right now, but I think he was asked about the comment, and his response was something about not dealing with petty stuff.

    So, he didn’t directly deny that aspect of the report.

    I can actually believe that.

    Him wanting to cling to Angie and their family.

    Yeah, I can believe that part got to her.

    Huvane is notorious for planting and denying.

    Sooo, it looks like the tabs had finally buried this triangle nonsense, then …

    we get her parading about in NY and this cover drops the same week?


    I have to feel sorry for Brad. He is never going to get that albatross off his neck

  • Lady Valeria

    I still find it hilarious (but gross!) that her fans defended her going braless for YEARS (which I really don’t care, but I also kinda don’t want to see your nipples…..but that just means I’m going to make fun of you in my head vs actually saying something because whatever guys don’t have to wear bras even when they have boobs……trust me, I’ve seen a few)………but when Angelina got her mastectomy, all of the comments were about her going braless……..her nipples poking out…..and her breasts looking fake. Oh golly gee, I wonder why???

    You know she read that interview 50 million times, just like she did Angelina’s Vogue (still can’t believe she let them be compared via her having the budget styling of Angelina’s original shoot) interview………except it’s not all that sympathetic for her to complain about her ex of 12 years wanting to cling to his wife and kids.

    Snarky about In The Land Of Blood and Honey & BTS a Romantic Comedy????? But still gave FTKMF an A and nice compliment to Angie and Sareum Srey Moch

    The movie works as well as it does thanks to the incredible work done by Sareum Srey Moch. She is a profound young actress.

    I hope she continues to showcase the strength and backbone as a director and writer that she clearly possesses. Sure, she has taken a hit or two, but every writer and director does every once in a blue moon. It’s how artists get up after a hit that truly makes them artists.
