Wonderland Screenwriter Will Pen Maleficent Movie
One of the biggest, baddest Disney villains ever is getting her own live-action movie.
Maleficent, the evil witch from Sleeping Beauty, will be appearing on the big screen with a script penned by Alice In Wonderland scribe Linda Woolverton, according to Heat Vision Blog.
We had been sceptical but hopeful about the project’s future and up until now it had mostly been a rumour with Tim Burton directing.
Burton is circling a number of projects at the moment, one of them was thought to be The Addams Family but sadly Burton’s people dismissed it as just a rumour.
But perhaps now Woolverton is on board for Maleficent, she can persuade Burton to join her.
There’s no doubt that the dark, edgy style that Disney are going for with this project would be right up Burton’s alley but he’s a busy little bee right now. His pet project Frankenweenie is deep into pre-production and ideas for Dark Shadows are still simmering away in that gothic brain of his.
