Casting for the sequel to Disney’s 2014 story based on Sleeping Beauty’s villain, Maleficent, is well underway and Academy Award nominated actress, Michelle Pfeiffer is in ‘advanced’ talks to join the cast.

According to Variety, if the deal goes through, Pfeiffer will play the queen in the film but other details on the character are scarce for now.
