After the impressive success of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, Disney has greenlit a version of Maleficent. According to slashfilm.com, screenwriter Linda Woolverton will be spinning the evil witch from Disney's animated classic into a live action adaptation, a la Wicked by Gregory Maguire. Angelina Jolie is rumoured for the elegant, yet sinister role according to the LA Times.
Hopefully they'll continue the original gorgeous graphic style done by legendary artist Eyvind Earle. If they accomplished it for 300, why not Maleficient? Now that would be a work of art. Oh, and they should definitely keep the bird. Ha.
