Disney's Maleficent 2 Finally Kicks Into Gear

CelebNMovies247.com has previously reported that Disney was working on a sequel, but then production came to a stand still. More than likely, the studio was waiting for all the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorce dust to settle.

The good news is that it looks like it may finally be getting rolling. We haven’t spoke about Maleficent 2 for a long time.

What we’ve learned about Maleficent 2:

A new screenwriter, Jez Butterworth, who wrote the screenplay for Edge of Tomorrow and Spectre among others, is taking a stab at a rewrite.

Maleficent 2 was confirmed a couple years back, but the talk became whispers and finally crickets until now. Linda Woolverton, who wrote the original Maleficent, wrote the first draft of the sequel. Though, Tracking Board is now reporting that Jez Butterworth will be taking on the rewrite responsibilities.

Jez Butterworth is also handling the script for Cruella, Disney’s other live-action movie based on an animated classic that will be focusing on the villain. That film will star Emma Stone and while it’s in pre-production.

We guess Disney is looking go a new direction with the film.
