Tim Burton Is Out of "Maleficent" Project

It has been reported that Tim Burton has left the "Maleficent" project, a live action film based on the "Sleeping Beauty" character.

It is said that Burton wasn't ever a definite for the film, but now a search goes on for a new director. Rumors say that David Yates, of "Harry Potter" fame, may fill the opening.

The film will be starring Angelia Jolie in the title role, and was written by "Alice In Wonderland" scribe Linda Woolverton.
