Sleeping Beauty looks to be Hollywood’s next fairy tale obsession. Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent, which will present the wicked queen’s side of the story, is currently in production. And now, THR.com is reporting:
The 21 Jump Street producer [Neal Moritz] is developing a modern-day retelling that finds the male protagonist [accidentally] awakening Sleeping Beauty and finding that he can’t get rid of the lovestruck heroine.
Obviously this project is in the very early stages and may never see the light of day (or, more accurately, our TV screens). Still, it makes for some interesting questions: Are you up for more fairy tale-themed TV, or are you growing weary of it? Is the idea of Sleeping Beauty as a modern-day comedy appealing to you? Are you side-eyeing the idea of her being a stalker as much as I am?
