Elle Fanning in talks to play Sleeping Beauty opposite Angelina Jolie, in Maleficent

Maleficent is having a long journey to the theater.  Just to remind you, this is the live-action Sleeping Beauty remake.  Angelina Jolie has signed up to play the titular character.  Robert Stromberg will direct.  And now, we could have our 'Beauty'.  Super 8 co-star, Elle Fanning is up for the princess.  Elle is of course the younger sister of Dakota Fanning.

I love this news.  Unlike Lily Collins in the Snow White remake, Mirror Mirror, Fanning is a proven actress with a ton of talent.  Despite how young she is, her performance in Super 8 conveyed a ton of emotion.  I hope this deal is done and she's on board.  This could be great.  We'll let you know when it's confirmed.
