Ohhhhh - Interesting

Apparently Tim Burton wants to do the story of sleeping beauty, but told from the point of view of Maleficent.
That gets me excited, but also worried that when/if it happens the role will go to Helena Bonham Carter as per usual.

Who would make a great Maleficent? Think of actresses tall and slender and in there 40's or 50's.

Nicole Kidman? Toni Collette? Angela Basset? Michelle Pfeiffer?

I was thinking Angelica Houston in her prime.

Yeah, but she already did 'The Witches'

Susan Sarandon. She's got the eyes.

Michael Parsons said...

She just did 'Enchanted' though - and not very well.

Helena Bonham Carter all the way. Okay, Annette Bening as an alternate but I'm all for HBC.

Julia Roberts could be good, or bad as the case may be. I can see a fierce performance out Helen Mirren as well.

totally forgot about enchanted, but can you blame me?

what about isabelle huppert? loved her in the piano teacher.
tilda swinton would be quite an obvious choice as well after narnia.

Never gonna happen, but Meryl Streep does a great bitch. Just saying.
