Angelina Jolie’s Kids Pax And Zahara To Join ‘Maleficient’ Cast
The new movie, Maleficient, will include several members of the Jolie-Pitt family. The new movie stars Angelina Jolie and will feature a performance from her daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt. A new report claims that Brad Pitt’s children Pax and Zahara will also be joining the cast.
US Magazine reports that Shiloh Pitt was also slated to appear in the new film but the 6-year-old child was bored on the day of filming and the celebrity parents decided to pull the little girl from the film. Shiloh did appear, however, in Brad Pitt’s 2008 film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
A source told the magazine:
“They have smaller parts. (Six-year-old) 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.”
It’s not clear what Pax and Zahara will be doing in the new movie. Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 4, will be playing a younger version of Princess Aururoa, played by Elle Fanning, in the new film. Vivienne is currently the only member of the Pitt-Jolie clan, not including Angelina, listed in the cast on IMDB.
The new movie, which re-imagines the tale of Sleeping Beauty from the perspective of Maleficient, is scheduled for release in March 2014.
