Maleficent Sequel in the Works But Will Angelina Jolie Put Those Horns Back On?
Disney has reportedly hired a writer for the sequel
Deadline reports that Disney has hired Linda Woolverton to write the follow-up and while Jolie, 40, hasn’t signed on yet to reprise her role as the dark queen in the sequel, she’s being kept in the loop on the script’s progress.
The film, which was a twisted take on the story of Sleeping Beauty, was a family affair for Jolie.
