Angelina Jolie to play Sleeping Beauty villain

Angelina Jolie has confirmed casting reports linking her to the role of Sleeping Beauty villainness Maleficent in a new fairytale movie.

The actress revealed she'll be a bad girl in her next movie at the Berlin International Film Festival in Germany, where she's promoting her directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey.

Angelina Jolie told The Hollywood Reporter, "I haven't acted in two years... The next thing I am looking at is a Disney movie."

It appears it's quite trendy to play a fairytale villain among Hollywood's leading ladies - both Charlize Theron and Julia Roberts play the evil queen in reimaginings of the Snow White fable. Both films are scheduled to hit cinemas later this year (12).
