As we reported ealier in the year, Tim Burton is said to be reworking Sleeping Beauty into a tale that follows the life of the story's villain Maleficent.
Now comes an even more exciting piece of news: Angelina Jolie is said to be the front-runner to take out the lead role.
The self-proclaimed "Mistress of All Evil", Maleficent, is one of the most sinister and powerful villains in Disney's back catalogue, however her story is one that is yet to be fully explored.
With Burton tackling the tale, and Jolie's sultry stylings taking the lead, there's no doubt the story of Maleficent could explode on the big screen.
Now y'all, let's pray there's truth to these rumours. Amen.
