Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent will be released on March 14, 2014

Disney is working on a live-action film starring Angelina Jolie as the evil Maleficent, you know, the one that cursed Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty. A release date of March 14, 2014, was announced today by Disney.

Directing the movie will be production designer Robert Stromberg (Avatar, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and Oz The Great and Powerful). I’m not sure what his experience is on directing a live-action feature film, but it should be interesting to see how it turns out.

Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Alice in Wonderland) will be penning the script with Joe Roth (Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and Oz The Great and Powerful) producing.
