Is Angelina Jolie a Good Witch, Or a Bad Witch?

Angelina Jolie has worked hard to build up her reputation from a tattooed bad girl to a philanthropic mother of six with a heart of gold. Now Jolie, 34, is reportedly getting back in touch her villainous side by negotiating a new Disney role -- as a classic fairy-tale witch.

According the Los Angeles Times, Jolie is in talks to star as the evil witch Maleficent in a live-action remake of Disney's Sleeping Beauty (1959). But there's a twist: In the new version, the famous story would be told from the witch's point of view... and the Changeling star would get to play both hero and villain. Just business as usual for the blood-vial-wearing, orphan-adopting, costar-romancing, girls'-school-building Oscar winner!

The new plot echoes the hit Broadway musical Wicked, which casts the "bad" witch from The Wizard of Oz as a misunderstood hero. Still, Maleficent may be a choice role: She's one of Disney's most frightening baddies, a green-skinned beauty who calls herself "the mistress of all evil" and can transform into a fire-breathing dragon. We loved Susan Sarandon's flamboyant performance as nefarious Narissa in Disney's Enchanted -- but we bet Jolie as Maleficent could wipe the floor with her. And hey, after the 2009 Oscars, we know this A-lister can confidently can pull off green and black fashions!
