P.O.T.G. BULLETIN (Movie):

After movie fans have been put into spell by Charlize Theron's portrayal of the Evil Queen Ravenna in Snow White and the Huntsman, another fairy tale villain will be unmasked and put into spotlight.  The Walt Disney Studios has announced that the production shoot of “Maleficent” (The Villain of Sleeping Beauty) starring Academy Award®–winning actress Angelina Jolie has already started.

Directed by two-time Oscar®-winning production designer Robert Stromberg (“Avatar,” “Alice in Wonderland”), in his directorial debut, and produced by Joe Roth, “Maleficent” is written by Linda Woolverton (“The Lion King,” “Beauty and the Beast”) and executive produced by Angelina Jolie, Don Hahn, Matt Smith and Palak Patel.
