Angelina Jolie keen to join Depp and Burton team

December 9th, 2010

Angelina Jolie would love to join the Johnny Depp and Tim Burton "family".

The 35-year-old actress has revealed she would love to star in the planned Sleeping Beauty re-imagining 'Maleficent' with Burton at the helm, as well as starring with Depp again following their work on 'The Tourist'.

She told MTV News: "It's all new and being discussed, but I loved her when I was a little girl. She was my favourite.

"Tim Burton, the chance to work with him would be extraordinary."

Asked about re-teaming with Depp, she said: "Oh, of course. I think every actor would be open to that.

"They are such a special team, and so you'd feel like you'd be entering a family that is such a wonderful, existing family."

Tim - who has worked with Depp on seven films in the past - has previously revealed he would love Angelina to take part in the project, although it is still in production.

He said: "I'd love to work with her. We're working on a script for that. It's hard to know when that script will be ready. But I'm a huge fan. That would be a good one."

'Maleficent' is expected for release in 2013.
