Angelina Jolie's daughter Vivienne cast in 'Maleficent'

Another Jolie-Pitt kid is making an entrance into the movie business.

After Shiloh's appearance as a baby in 2008's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," which starred dad Brad Pitt, little Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 4, will join mom Angelina in "Maleficent."

The upcoming Disney project is a spin on the classic "Sleeping Beauty" fairy tale, which tells the story of Princess Aurora and the evil Maleficent.

With the new, live-action version, the studio will explore Maleficent's background and the reason she cursed Aurora, with Angelina as the titular villain.

Vivienne, who's already been in the spotlight with twin brother Knox thanks to a People magazine cover upon their arrival in '08, has been cast as the child version of Princess Aurora. (Elle Fanning, 14, will presumably portray the older version.)

Angelina and Vivienne's "Maleficent" will arrive in theaters March 14, 2014.

  4. Personality...

    the younger ones are not interested especially the women.. there too busy figuring out how to mooch off of men...the women that are between 40 and up are much more excited about bringing in the business..most young people today are lazy. that's how we do it..i get the fish and the big boys take care of the rest! ha!

    she's a business drawer, they see her they follow her to the same area. she has the personality and people want to be near her energy. that is why her movie directors make sure she remains in front all the time because she makes the directors look good. she does the kiss kiss and the directors handle the rest.

    I have never met a bunch of haters. Some of you complain of nepotism... Seriously? One thing, both her mother and father were in the industry So why does it surprise you that she she would help her kids into it as well? Also, It isn't like she could use her adopted children as she is not their ethnic group. So, yes, her biological kids are used for younger versions of white little versions of them. Now, let us also look at the complaint of "retirement." Do you think she needs to live off her kids, with all HER own monies???? Seriously, she has enough so that each child would not have to work. Also, their father has enough with his monies the kids would never have to work. "Greed" was the other complaint, which is also ridiculous because they are actors and actresses that is what they do ACT. Why is working in their field of choice now considered greed? Lastly, there isn't a frelling parent on this planet that had the same opportunity who would do what they do. So even if you may not like her acting, it is what she does and she brings the studios the money, because she does have fans. So seriously, stop hating because you are jealous, and to stupid to even see the blind truth.

      Not only that, but Angelina Jolie gives 30 percent of everything she makes to charity. That's a lot when you make as much as she does. So good for her.

      just a correction on what you wrote - jolie's daughter is playing a very young princess aurora and elle fanning will be playing the older princess aurora. jolie's daughter isn't playing a young version of jolie's character, maleficent, like you wrote.

    I don't trust that some of the kids are seen all the time and others are rarely seen at all. Is she experiencing buyers remorse on the adoptions???? I think she's overrated, overexposed and just weird. The media doesn't have to make someone sound weird if they're wearing a vial of blood around their neck. I wish she'd go away. Somebody turn off the camera AND lights on this couple.

    She is just so overrated it is rediculous. She really isn't even an actress. She just always plays herself. An over the top nut job.

    They're both amazing actors and very active in causes that are close to their hearts. I think they're find role models and hope their family stays strong.

    It's nice that she can find ways to make it easier to have her kids around while she's working. Plus I'm sure it's easier for the producers to use a baby who was already going to be around the set than trying to bring in another one withy family in tow.

    • ah...

      @Liz- I was thinking the same thing. I'm sure the part is not going to be that big anyway. How cool to work on the same project as one of your children, too.
