Juno Temple has joined the cast of the Sleeping Beauty re-imagining, Maleficent. The movie is from the point-of-view of the eponymous evil sorceress (Angelina Jolie), who cursed Aurora (Elle Fanning) to a permanent sleep on her 16th birthday. According to THR, Temple will play Temple will play the pixie Thistletwit who, like the other two pixies, Knotgrass (Imelda Staunton) and Flittle (Leslie Manville), is neglectful and superficial. The cast also includes Sharlto Copley, Miranda Richardson, Kenneth Cranham, Sam Riley, and India Eisley.
I feel like I’ve missed a movie where Juno Temple was great and led her to be in plenty of other movies. I’ve seen her in Year One, Killer Joe, Greenberg, Cracks, and Small Apartments, and I’ve found her forgettable every time. If someone could please direct me to her breakthrough film, I would greatly appreciate it. There’s plenty more Temple on the way as the actress co-stars in The Dark Knight Rises, The Brass Teapot, Lovelace, Truck Stop, Little Birds, and Wild Side. Maleficent opens March 14, 2014.
