Disney’s upcoming Maleficent sequel, which stars Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, has added another key piece to its ensemble with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actress Jenn Murray.
Variety reported late last week that Jenn Murray has joined the cast of Disney’s upcoming Maleficent sequel. Details on her role remain under wraps for now.
Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie (Kung Fu Panda 3) and Elle Fanning (Mary Shelley) return to star as the titular character and Aurora, respectively, with an all-new supporting cast that recently added Michelle Pfeiffer (Ant-Man and the Wasp), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange), and Ed Skrein (Deadpool).
Production is expected to begin later this summer. Joachim Rønning (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) is directing with a script from Jez Butterworth (Edge of Tomorrow) and Linda Woolverton (The Lion King). Micah Fitzerman-Blue (Transparent) and Noah Harpster (Transparent) penned the most recent draft.
Murray is best known for her role as Chastity Barebone in Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and her recent credits also include Love & Friendship and Brooklyn.
