Indie starlet Juno Temple is about to break out in a big way in The Dark Knight Rises – no matter what kind of screentime Christopher Nolan gives her, she’ll be seen by the entire world — and now the actress is lining up a few more blockbusters. The latest is a Disney creation, their live-action twist on Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent.
THR reports that Temple has joined the cast as a pixie fairy Thistletwit who helps out Aurora (Elle Fanning) in the forest. She’ll be part of the ensemble cast for the film which tells the original on the evil fairy, which includes Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley, Lesley Manville, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson and Kenneth Cranham.
Few other actresses crank out as much work as Temple, whose Little Birds and deranged Killer Joe hit theaters this summer along with Nolan’s blockbuster, while Jack and Diane arrives in the fall and both Lovelace and The Brass Teapot are expected by the end of the year, or at least on the festival circuit. That doesn’t even mention the five additional indie projects that are in some form of production as we speak. Along with Rises, this Disney film will certainly give her unprecedented and deserved exposure.
With Robert Stromberg at the helm, Maleficent will shoot this summer and open on March 14th, 2014.

What dictated these labels […]
