Ella Purnell has replaced India Eisley in the reshoots/redux of MALEFICENT’s opening scenes. The story retells the “Sleeping Beauty” tale from the point of view of Maleficent (Angelina Jolie), the self-proclaimed “Mistress of All Evil.” Eisley previously played the young version of Maleficient, that Purnell is currently filming.
John Lee Hancock penned the most recent rewrites that Robert Stromberg is directing. Matt Smith, Joe Roth, Don Hahn and Palak Patel are the producers.
Purnell was last seen in “Kick-Ass 2” and will soon appear in “WildLike.”
She is repped by UTA.
