Angelina Jolie could soon be dusting off her horny headdress – Disney is working on a sequel to Maleficent.

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.

Three of her children – Vivienne, Zahara and Pax – had small roles in the movie, and Jolie told PEOPLE in May last year that she and Vivienne, who played the young Princess Aurora, “had a good time” practicing their scenes together at home.
