In 2010, Jolie called the chance to work with Tim Burton “extraordinary.” Too bad that’s not happening anymore, as he has been replaced by first-time director, visual/special effects specialist Robert Stromberg.
I already have more faith in the quality of Maleficent (due 2014) now that Burton isn’t involved. He forgot how to make movies as soon as the countdown for the year 2000 began.
Maleficent stars Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora and was written by comic-movie expert Paul Dini and Disney veteran Linda Woolverton, co-writer of The Lion King, Homeward Bound, and 2010’s Alice In Wonderland.[See pics of Jolie on set as Malficent HERE]
