Maleficent 2 has been in development for a few years now and has recently seen a couple updates. Last week we received word through Tracking Board that Jez Butterworth, who wrote the script for the latest Bond flick, SPECTRE, would be taking over for Linda Woolverton, who wrote the original. Now, in an interview with Deadline, Jolie confirmed that she’ll be returning to the role stating:
“We have been working on the script and this is going to be a really strong sequel.”
There’s still no word on a release date or even a production start date, so it will probably be a while before we see the film on the screen.
That’s all we’ve got on the film for now, are you guys looking forward to it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
