The acting bug is running rampant among the Braneglina brood!
After news broke in August that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s 4-year-old daughter, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, would play a minor role as the child version of Princess Aurora opposite her mother in Disney’s “Maleficent,” more of the star couple’s children are reportedly joining the project.
According to Us Weekly, Pax, 8, and Zahara, 7, will also appear in Robert Stromberg’s big screen rendition of the Sleeping Beauty tale.
“They have smaller parts,” a source told the mag, explaining they will not have speaking roles.
Daughter Shiloh, 6, who made a brief appearance in dad Brad’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” in 2008, almost also appeared in the movie.
“Shiloh was supposed to be in it, too, but she was bored and not in the mood during the day her part was supposed to happen, so she ended up not being in the film,” the source said.
The movie — scheduled for a 3-D release in theaters on March 14, 2014 — also stars Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
Production for “Maleficent” is currently underway, shooting on location in London.
