Hey there, I'm Tatiana Diana for Clevver Movies with the latest on Mal-ef-icent! Maleficent, a live action version of sleeping beauty is in the works, and David O. Russel just may be directing! Russel, known for The Fighter , was supposed to be working on another flick for Columbia called, "Unchartered Drakes Fortune" but recently exited the project. And on the topic of exiting, Tim Burton was originally going to direct "Maleficent," but opted out earlier this year, making room for a potential Russel fill in. While we aren't 100% certain Russel will be directing, we do know that starlet Angelina Jolie will take on the role as the evil witch, who narrates the story of Sleeping Beauty through her perspective. No word yet on when the Sleeping Beauty inspired movie will be released, but we will be sure to keep you updated! Do you think Sleeping Beauty can be successfully turned into an action packed flick?
