Michelle Pfeiffer is in talks for 'Maleficent.' Will she face off against Jolie?

May 18, 2018

Michelle Pfeiffer is said to be on board the sequel to "Maleficent."

While it has been confirmed that a certain "Deadpool" cast member will wind up in the project as an antagonist, it is not clear in what capacity Pfeiffer will be. Details put her as a "queen" of some kingdom.

She could well be King Stefan's vindictive widow, plotting to unleash all the powers of hell on Angelina Jolie's redeemed enchantress. Or she might well be the leader of a rival fairy kingdom.

It's not like Pfeiffer is a stranger to movie sorcery. (Hello, "Witches of Eastwick?") She was malefic in Darren Aronofsky's "mother!" and held her own as one of the Lamia in "Stardust."

Let's see what screenwriter Linda Woolverton has up her sleeve with the indefatigable Miss Pfeiffer...
