Angelina Jolie is prepping to shoot Maleficent, the live-action version of Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. Jolie spoke with EW about playing the title villainess role, “It’s the first time they’re looking at this epic woman … I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities. It’s a really great script. I’m having a lot of fun. I’ve already got my horns fitted. My kids are very happy.” As a child, Maleficent scared the s—t out of me so hopefully I’ll be able to hold my own with this film.
