It seems that fairy tales with new twists on classic formulas are the 'in' thing these days. The Robert Stromberg helmed 'Maleficent' falls into that camp by retelling the 'Sleeping Beauty' tale from the perspective of the princess' evil nemesis, Maleficent. Angelina Jolie ('Tomb Raider') will play the title role in the live action feature that'll kick off shooting at Pinewood here in the UK this Summer. A new British cast member and undeniable talent has been tagged on to the current cast list in the form of the adorable Juno Temple (below). The hot star of 'St. Trinian's, 'The Three Musketeers' and 'The Dark Knight Rises', to mention a few, will join Imelda Staunton ('The Awakening') and Lesley Manville to play a pixie named Thistletwit. Elle Fanning, India Eisley, Miranda Richardson, Sharlto Copley ('District 9'), Sam Riley and Kenneth Cranham also star.
"Tells the story of Maleficent from the point of view of the fairy-witch who cursed Aurora to a permanent sleep on her 16th birthday."
