Marvel Star CONFIRMED As The Villain In Maleficent 2
Disney's Maleficent sequel has confirmed its villain. Here's everything we know.
The wheels are starting to turn on Disney’s upcoming sequel to Maleficent, with Deadpool star Ed Skrein set to join the cast. No details have been confirmed as to who exactly he’ll be playing, but we do know he’ll be the villain of the piece.
Indeed, plot details are practically non-existent at this point, although we do know that Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning will both be reprising their roles from the first movie.
Joachim Ronning, director of the most recent Pirates Of The Carribbean movie, will step behind the camera while Spectre co-writer Jez Butterworth is taking a run at the script in tandem with Linda Woolverton.
Reviews for the first movie were kind of a mixed bag, but with the movie raking in over $750 million worldwide, you can see why Disney are up for a second round.
Production is set to begin later this year, ahead of a likely 2019 release date.
