Sharlto Copley Is The King In Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent Movie

This is, for the most part, a picture post. Much more would just be wild speculation.

Sharlto Copley is in the frame, say Deadline, to play King Stefan in Maleficent, the revised Sleeping Beauty story that is going to star Angelina Jolie as the titular big bad. Linda Woolverton wrote the screenplay and Robert Stromberg is going to direct.

Here’s an image of Stefan as he appears in Disney’s animated original.

And here’s an image of Copley.

Well, he looks the part.

And we like Copley. He was very good in District 9 and really can’t be blamed for The A-Team at all.
