This was just released and is just a fun fact that Angelina auditioned for the 90s classic The Craft which is about a group of teenage witches. Happens to be one of my childhood favorites and would had been so fun if Angelina had starred in it 🙂
Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson and Reese Witherspoon all auditioned for which cult 1996 horror about teenage witches?
It was while they were still young and practicing their, ahem, craft…
With hindsight Jolie, especially, seems like she would have been perfect for the movie. But this was 1996, so it still two years until she would unleash the full range of her ability to play extremely troubled characters in Gia and Playing By Heart during her breakthrough year of 1998.
However, she was pipped to the post at the time by another rising star, Neve Campbell who was riding high in Party of Five.
We still wish we had seen Jolie as a furious, vengeful teenage witch, though.
If you have been an Angelina for a couple of years you know that Angelina has been both rumored to star and to direct the movie Cleopatra. Now there is rumors that Denis Villeneuve will direct it and we don’t know if Angelina will be part of the project at all – lets just hope so! We know Angie has been interested in it for a long time and I think she would be perfect for the part.
In 2014 she mentioned the project last:
“She’s complicated, it’s complicated to get this one right. I think we’re getting there. It’s getting close. I imagine the preparation for it is going to be big. It’s one of those that you think maybe that’s the one you put everything into and that’s where you end it, that’s where you finish – in a great way. What could you do beyond that one?”
Deadline posted about this:
The first social media reviews around the world on Blade Runner 2049 are calling the film a sci-fi masterpiece. Now, its director Denis Villeneuve is in discussions for one of Sony Pictures’ highest profile pictures. Deadline hears that Villeneuve will re-develop to direct Cleopatra, the epic female empowerment story of one of history’s most complex heroines. Based on the bestselling Stacy Schiff biography that is being produced by Scott Rudin and Amy Pascal, Cleopatra has seen the biggest filmmaker names circle this one including James Cameron, Paul Greengrass and David Fincher. Now, it’s Villeneuve who has sparked to the challenge and in a week he might be the hottest guy out there.
That filmmaker has quickly catapulted to the top of the A-list after directing Prisoners, Sicario and Arrival and then taking the Blade Runner baton from Ridley Scott. He has also been one of the three director names on the short list to direct the next James Bond film, along with ’71 and White Boy Rick director Yann Demange and David Mackenzie, the Hell or High Water director now filming Outlaw King, the story of rebellious Scottish king Robert the Bruce, for Netflix. Villenueve is also developing a new version of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic Dune for Legendary Entertainment. The expectation is 007 isn’t in the cards, and that he can work on Cleopatra while directing Dune.
Sony has a script that David Scarpa, Eric Roth and Brian Helgeland have all worked on. Angelina Jolie has long been eyed to play the Egyptian queen, but it is unclear whether that still will happen. Sony’s David Beaubaire is overseeing for the studio.
By the Sea was the second movie that Angelina and Brad Pitt did together and the third movie Angelina directed. It was filmed in 2014 when Angelina and Brad was recently married and they both spent their honeymoon and filmed the movie in Malta.
The movie got mixed reviews but I enjoyed it and thought it was a really pretty and interesting movie. Angelina did good on writing the script and it was set during my favorite time in history, the 60s and 70s. So it was a real pleasure to see Angie styled in what was fashionable back then!

After some years without appearing in any new movies Angelina finally came back in a fairy tale as the well known Maleficent from the classic Sleeping Beauty. I think don’t think we have to say how happy most of us fans were to see Angelina again and in a part that was more than perfect for her!
The movie itself is absolutely amazing and so refreshing to not be the typical script, which makes it perhaps even more important for small girls to see. We also know now that there will be a second movie, which is very happy news!

Several new interviews with Angelina from the Telluride Festival and you can read them all in our press archive. It’s so great to be able to read this many new interviews from Angelina, even if most of them are from the same press conference. But it means that the movie is getting a lot of attention!
I also added scans from the UK magazine Screen International and the August/September 2017 issue.
In the Deadline interview she confirms Maleficent 2, which I’m sure delights most of us! 🙂 It was also published on the site Tracking Board that Jez Butterworth will rewrite the script.
After working with him on Cruella, Disney has hired Jez Butterworth to rewrite the script for Maleficent 2, the Tracking Board has exclusively learned.
Joe Roth is producing the sequel, which will see Angelina Jolie reprise her role as the iconic Sleeping Beauty villain. Maleficent scribe Linda Woolverton wrote the initial draft of the screenplay.
