Tim Burton To Do Disney Film? And Pirates 4 Starts Filming

1maleficent-jpg22Rumours this morning indicate that Prince of Darkness Tim Burton wants to make a film based on Disney’s Sleeping Beauty villain, Maleficent.

So far this is only a rumour and that’s enough for us to get excited. Harry Knowles from Ain’t It Cool News has reported a whisper he’s heard that indicates that one of Tim Burton’s upcoming projects will be a story from the evil Queen’s POV.

Apparently it’s going to be semi live action, and with the way things are going for the industry, it’s a safe bet that it’ll be in 3D too. With fans already going nuts over Alice in Wonderland, released in March, we can’t imagine the fandom this will create.

Nor will we be surprised if Burton casts either his wife or Johnny Depp as Maleficent.

In other Disney related news, the forthcoming Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides, will commence shooting this summer in beautiful Hawaii. Said to be the start of another trilogy, not a lot is known about the project other than the fact that Geoffrey Rush has also signed on the reprise his role as the villainous Barbossa.

What this will mean for Burton and Depp’s Dark Shadows project? Who knows.

StumbleUpon It!
