Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt’s Jungle Cruise now will set sail on a week later on October 11, 2019, and Disney had an unspecified live-action title scheduled for May 29, 2020, that has been designated to Maleficent 2.
A new rumoured project for Angelina and tis time it’s a movie called Come Away which is meant to be a prequel the classic stories Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. we would love Angelina to take part in something like thi!
Angelina Jolie and David Oyelowo are in talks to star in Come Away, a fantasy drama that will mark the live-action debut of Brenda Chapman, the Oscar-winning director and co-writer of the Pixar film Brave.
Marissa Kate Goodhill wrote the script, and UK-based Fred Films is producing with Oyelowo’s Yoruba Saxon Productions. Oyelowo, Leesa Kahn, James Spring and Andrea Keir are producing and Michelle Manning will be executive producer. The plan is for Come Away to shoot initially in the UK, with Jolie joining the shoot in Los Angeles in the fall. Jolie is next set to star in Maleficent 2 for Disney.
Come Away is imagined as a prequel to Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. Before Alice went to Wonderland, and before Peter became Pan, they were brother and sister. When their eldest brother dies in a tragic accident, they each seek to save their parents (Jolie & Oyelowo) from their downward spirals of despair until finally they are forced to choose between home and imagination. This sets the stage for their iconic journeys into Wonderland and Neverland.
“Angelina and David are going to bring a beautiful chemistry and depth to this magical story, giving audiences a wonderful step outside the expected,” Chapman said.
Said screenwriter Goodhill: “Brenda is a singular storyteller. Her decades of experience in creating rich fantasy worlds populated by complex characters make her a dream director for this project, which explores how fantasy functions as a way to cope with reality. Her thoughtful approach to filmmaking and indomitable talent make her the perfect person to bring this story to life.”
The film is co-represented by UTA and Endeavor Content.
Jolie is repped by UTA and Sloane Offer; Oyelowo is repped by Hamilton Hoddell, Inphenate and CAA; Chapman is repped by WME; and Goodhill is repped by Jamie Coghill at Surpin & Mayersohn.
This Tuesday, May 29, 2018, actress Elle Fanning released the first photo of Angelina Jolie on the film sets of Maleficent 2 on her official Instagram.
The recordings of the film began last week and are being held at Pinewood Studios in the UK.
In addition, the official Disney Instagram also posted a photo officially confirming that the feature is already in production.
Angelina Jolie will return to the lead role playing Malificent herself and Elle Fanning will return playing the role of Princess Aurora. According to The Collider, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville will also return to star as their first film roles.
Also confirmed are Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Skrein, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Robert Lindsay and Harris Dickinson. The film will feature the direction of Joachim Ronning and the screenplay is by Jez Butterworth and Linda Woolverton.
Seems like the first official synopsis is released as well:
A fantasy adventure that takes place several years after the first film, through which the public discovered which events hardened the heart of Disney’s most famous villain and made him curse Princess Aurora. “Malevolent II” continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the future queen, forming new alliances and facing new opponents in the struggle to protect the Moors and the magical creatures that live there.
A new career rumour for Angelina and this time it is as a James Bond villain and if this is true, it will be the second time Angie and Daniel Craig work together. Daniel was in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider in 2001 together with her.
James Bond 25 LEAK? ‘Angelina Jolie set for VILLAIN and Lily James in running as co-lead’
James Bond 25 has seen another alleged leak, this time claiming Angelina Jolie is set to play the villain, while Lily James and Dua Lipa are in the running for Daniel Craig’s co-lead.
It has a release date set for November 2019, but very little is known about Craig’s fifth and final James Bond movie.
While he’s definitely signed on, rumours have been mounting around director Danny Boyle and John Hodge’s script.
Now a new leak has arrived from a Reddit user who previously claimed: “I work in the film industry and know people tangentially connected to the world of Bond.”
Cashley Persia alleges: “I’ve heard that Boyle has committed to a script and casting is underway.”
They continued: “Supposedly, the big roles in the script are the female villain and Bond’s understudy (another female role).
“I hear Sophie Rundle, Lily James, Ella Purnell and Antonia Thomas have auditioned/met with Boyle (though this list is not exhaustive).
More casting news for Maleficent 2!
Harris Dickinson, who will be seen in the upcoming YA adaptation The Darkest Minds, is joining Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent sequel.
Dickinson joins fellow franchise newcomers Michelle Pfeiffer and Ed Skrein. Elle Fanning is set to return for the follow-up to the 2014 Disney hit that grossed $758 million at the global box office.
Plot details are being kept locked away in a tower, and it is currently unclear if the sequel will pick up where the original left off. Dickinson will be playing the prince in the new pic, replacing Brenton Thwaites, who played the role in the original.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales co-director Joachim Ronning will helm the feature that centers on the Sleeping Beauty antagonist. Joe Roth will produce the film, with Jez Butterworth and Linda Woolverton working on the screenplay.
Dickinson, who currently stars on FX’s John Paul Getty series Trust, is repped by Gersh, Luber Roklin and Bloom Hergott.
