Ed Skrein, best known for his work as the devious Francis Freeman in Deadpool, is said to be in talks to play villain in the Maleficent sequel.

Angelina Jolie will return to her titular role as the vindicated enchantress, while Elle Fanning will also be recapitulating her Aurora.

But what's left to tell? All we know is that Linda Woolverton is resuming screenwriting duties, joining scribes Jez Butterworth, Micah Fitzerman-Blue, and Noah Harpster.

Maleficent 2 starts shooting this year.
