Alice Writer Hired To Pen Maleficent

24 March 2010 No Comment

Disney has hired Linda Woolverton, the scriptwriter for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland to write the upcoming live-action Maleficent, a remake of Disney’s animated Sleeping Beauty from the villain’s perspective.

This choice is being seen as a part of Disney’s campaign to sign Tim Burton on for director of the film. No deal has been made with Burton, yet, but the hiring of Woolverton is the first concrete step forward in its development.

Woolverton has also written for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King.
