Sleeping Beauty Revamp, Maleficent, Gets a Writer
Linda Woolverton, who just wrote Alice in Wonderland, is signed on to write Disney's Sleeping Beauty movie that is to tell the story of the evil witch, Maleficent. Tim Burton's name is still attached to the project, but that is not at all official as of right now. Getting a writer is the first big step to the movie being made, a director isn't signed on yet. Whether or not Tim Burton directs it, and if Helena Bonham Carter will be involved (if Burton does do it, it's very likely HBC, Johnny Depp and Danny Elfman will too, of course) is yet to be determined.
