David O. Russell to Direct "Maleficent?" 


It's a story you saw first on mannythemovieguy.com, we reported in May of 2009 that Angelina Jolie was being courted to play the wicked Maleficent in Disney's retelling of "Sleeping Beauty." (See EXCLUSIVE: Angelina Jolie to Star as Disney's Greatest Villain Maleficent!)

In the beginning, Brad Bird was rumored to make his first live-action debut with "Maleficent," but then Tim Burton was also talked about, and now, "The Fighter's" David O. Russell is supposedly negotiating to helm the Linda Woolverton script according to The Hollywood Reporter. BUT, many insiders are also saying there are other names in the mix as well!

So only time will tell who gets to direct Jolie in the fantasy epic. But the big question, is the actress still interested?
