Robert Stromberg to Direct Angelina Jolie-Starring Movie Malifecent
Disney has tapped production designer Robert Stromberg ("Avatar," "Alice in Wonderland") to direct the live-action movie about Sleeping Beauty's evil queen "Maleficent".
The fantasy movie is told from the viewpoint of Beauty's apple-bearing fairy godmother, played by Angelina Jolie. It is being touted as a post-modern take on the classic fairy tale.
It will mark Stromberg's directing debut.
"Maleficent" is written by Linda Woolverton, who also wrote the script for Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" and co-wrote the script for "The Lion King." Don Hahn, Joe Roth and Richard D. Zanuck produce.
The "Maleficent" news comes following the announcement that Disney had tapped another first-time director, Brian Beletic, for a Matterhorn-ride-inspired movie referred to as the "Untitled Explorers Project."
I was curious and read an article about it. It said "Snow White's evil queen Maleficent" lol it could be a Wicked sort of idea. Gregory Maguire did tell all his stories from the other side. - KissDclown

I hope they get their stories straight..."SNOW WHITE'S evil queen, Maleficent"??? "Apple-bearing Fairy Godmother"???? Maleficent was neither apple-bearing, nor a Fairy Godmother! - SlpgBty
