Angelina Jolie to Play Maleficent in Tim Burton Movie?

Angelina Jolie as Maleficent—Yay or Nay?

A while back, I shared Hollywood buzz that had me pretty excited—a movie on Sleeping Beauty's villain Maleficent. At the time, Tim Burton's name was being floated around as a possible director and he's still in consideration apparently (no doubt due to the success of Alice in Wonderland). His possible involvement is enough to keep me intrigued, but now comes word that Angelina Jolie has shown interest in the project as none other than Maleficent herself! Personally, after hearing this news, I can't imagine anyone else in the role. I'm sure the story will have a darker streak, which is probably appealing to Jolie. Plus, it will hopefully be something she can take the older members of her big brood to go see. Even so, other than perhaps Kung Fu Panda, "family films" aren't typical Jolie territory. So, what are your feelings on these rumours?

Ange as a dark, sexy, she-villian...absolutely. In all her roles she gives the character a believablity and edge that other actors lack. I doubt any role is outside her scope, she adapts, a chamelion on screen.

Angelina has a portfolio to rival any actor in Hollywood today, she eclipses her peers both in beauty and talent. Her enigmatic personality has polarised the globe, glib one liners with twisted comments are examples of the lynch mob mentality that would like to brand her with a scarlet letter and see her burnt at the stake. This incredible young woman has achieved so much already and has the durability of Meryl Streep, only with edge. Love her or hate her, she is iconic. For those who prefer mediocrity, I understand how someone like Angelina would be threatening but I really encourage you to watch her movies, from the demure mother whose son was brutally butchered by a serial killer in The Changeling to the stong, couragous, dignified wife of a victim of terrorism in A Mighty Heart; sociopathic, teenage inpatient in Girl Interrupted; assassin and superheros, Mr and Mrs Smith, Tombraider; Beowolf....her talent surpasses her peers. She is truely unique. Not one of the cut and paste actresses that seem to have sprung from the same little gene pool, overbaked, robotic performances with the a clone like cosmetically enhanced prettiness that fades so quickly. Angelina was an incredible beauty at 15 and has grown into her beauty with a sensuality that lures both males and females. Salt really should be seen on the big screen, amazing action scenes coupled with truley hot sex scenes, Angelina in her element.
