Angelina Jolie Wants to Work With Tim Burton

Angelina Jolie has a lot of movies in development, apparently, and she'd love to make 'em all! In this video, a reporter from MTV asks her if she'll actually make any of them, and she manages to give a convincing "maybe" as her answer to everything. But the project that seems most likely to see a screen: Tim Burton's Maleficent, a take on Sleeping Beauty’s evil queen. "It’s all new and being discussed," she says of the project. "But I loved her when I was a little girl. She was my favorite. Tim Burton, the chance to work with him would be extraordinary.” As for the rumors that she'll star in an upcoming Cleopatra biopic, she says the film doesn't even have a director yet, but she'd like to tell "the real story" of the Egyptian queen someday. In any case, the number of potentially successful-sounding projects Jolie has lined up is best summed up by one Deadline commenter, who observed: "This woman is still so hot. Damn!" [Deadline]
