Michelle Pfeiffer Joins The Cast of 'Maleficent 2'
Disney's successful formula of taking storied characters from the animation realm and making them live-action is going to continue. Maleficent was one of the first test runs for this formula, and it was successful enough to garner a sequel.
Michelle Pfeiffer will be joining Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning in the 2014 fairy tale follow up. No details on what role Pfeiffer will be playing in the highly-anticipated sequel.
Joachim Rønning will be directing the film. He recently directed the latest Pirates of the Caribbean installment. No plot details have been revealed for the Sleeping Beauty spinoff tale. Ed Skrein recently joined the cast as a villain.
Disney is planning to start filming this year. Jez Butterworth and Linda Woolverton penned the script. Michelle Pfeifer's next gig is the role of Janet Van Dyne in Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp.
