Twitch has reported actress Ell Fanning is in negotiations to play Princess Aurora in the Sleeping Beauty live-action adaptation of â€œMaleficent.â€
Fanning will be an interesting addition to play opposite to Angelina Jolie, who is the evil fairy godmother in the fairy tale.
Maleficent was a fairy that did not receive an invitation to Princess Auroraâ€™s christening. She cursed the child to die on the day she pricked her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel before her sixteen birthday. Another fairy changed the curse to place Princess Aurora into a deep slumber instead.
The new â€œMaleficentâ€ film will retell the entire story from the villainâ€™s perspective.
Fanning appeared last year in â€œWe Bought a Zooâ€ and â€œSuper 8.â€ She is currently filming with Christina Hendricks and Annette Bening in the upcoming movie â€œBomb.â€
