Disney Making a New Turn?

Ok so Disney is famous for making cute sweet fairytales. What's got me excited is the new rumored movie Maleficent. Yes, that is the name of the villain from Sleeping Beauty. It is rumored to be a live action film (like the recent Alice...). Many are suspecting that Tim Burton is going to direct and Angelina Jolee has made it known that she wants to play the title role. Who would have thought Disney would take one of its most cherished classics and completely turn it on its head. A Villian's perspective? Especially if Tim Burton does this movie...its gunna be a bit trippy. The curious part about this story? There is no script written. Nothing. Nada. Just Speculations. Dramaturgs to the rescue?

here is a link to a site discussing a bit about the film and other possible Maleficent.
