Tim Burton to Remake “Sleeping Beauty”?

Sleeping Beauty DVDFor now, this is just a rumor, but Ain’t It Cool News is reporting that Tim Burton is taking on the remake of the Disney classic Sleeping Beauty. Well, I wouldn’t call it a remake.

The semi-live action version (similar to Alice in Wonderland) will be told from the point of view of Maleficent. She’s the “Mistress of All Evil” who curses Princess Aurora to “prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die” before the sun sets on her 16th birthday.

Instead of calling it “Sleeping Beauty”, it may simply be called “Maleficent”. Interesting, very interesting news.  I can’t wait to hear more about this. From the clips I have seen from “Alice in Wonderland”, I personally would love to see a semi-live action of Sleeping Beauty.

What are your thoughts on all of this?

      If Tim Burton doesn’t want to, I’d love to make a version of Sleeping Beauty. Who knows, a woman’s touch might be the Midas touch when it comes to this fairy tale?
