India Eisley has been cast to play a younger version of Angelina Jolie in the upcoming movie Maleficent. So basically, she’s been deemed as beautiful as Jolie was several years ago. Every actress’s dream!
The film is a reimagining of Sleeping Beauty, told from the point-of-view of the title “Mistress of All Evil,” to be played by Jolie and the 18-year-old Eisley, a star of ABC Family’s hit series The Secret Life of the American Teenager. It’s easily the biggest role and film for Eisley, whose most notable previous big-screen appearance came earlier this year, with a part in Underworld: Awakening.
Award-winning visual-effects supervisor/designer Robert Stromberg signed on in January to make his directorial debut with Maleficent, which is slated for a May 2014 release.
