Two more of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s children may be following in their parents’ thespian footsteps.
Angelina and Brad’s son Pax and daughter Zahara have reportedly been cast alongside Angelina in Disney’s “Maleficent,” according to Us Weekly.
“They have smaller parts,” a source told Us Weekly, adding that neither child will have a speaking role. “Shiloh was supposed to be in it, too, but she was bored and not in the mood during the day her part was supposed to happen, so she ended up not being in the film.”
In August, four-year-old Vivienne was cast in “Maleficent” as the young Princess Aurora who eventually grows up to be the nemesis of evil Maleficent, Walt Disney Productions previously confirmed.
“Maleficent,” due out in 2014, retells the story of “Sleeping Beauty” from the perspective of the villainess Maleficent, played by Angelina. Elle Fanning, who plays the grown Princess Aurora, is already gushing about Jolie in the role.
“She’s incredible,” Fanning told E! News. “She’s so elegant. She looks just amazing as Maleficent, all her costumes and her makeup.” The 14-year-old actress admits that Jolie is a bit frightening in her Maleficent costume, “You know, it’s like an elegant scary—sort of spooky. But you get used to it…It’s perfect.”
“Maleficent” is being directed by Robert Stromberg, best known for his work on “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “There Will Be Blood” and “The Golden Compass.”
