Angelina Jolie’s Daughter Vivienne Cast in Mom’s ‘Maleficent’ (REPORTS)
Four-year-old Jolie-Pitt will reportedly play a minor role as the younger version of Elle Fanning’s character Princess Aurora in the fairy tale flick.
Set for a March 2014 release date, the live-action 3D fable explores the origins of Disney’s iconic villain from Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent.
How much screen time will the superstar mother-and-daughter pair share?
Despite having a minor role in the film, the chances that Vivienne — twin sister to Knox — will act side-by-side with her mom are pretty high, considering that Jolie stars as the titular sorceress who casts the sleeping spell on the princess.
A source close to the Oscar winner told The Sun, “Ange thought it would be a fun experience for her and Viv to share, and Viv is a natural.”
Talent certainly runs in this gene pool. Older sister Shiloh, 6, had a cameo as dad Brad Pitt’s on-screen daughter in 2008’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Not to mention that a 6-year-old Jolie appeared alongside her father, actor Jon Voight, in 1982’s Lookin’ to Get Out.
Maleficent hits theaters on March 14, 2014.
