Alice in Wonderland hasn't even hit theaters yet and already Tim Burton is rumored to be at work re-inventing another Disney adaptation that he'll undoubtedly shoehorn Helena Bonham Carter into. Ain't It Cool News has heard the director is developing another surreal live-action/CGI hybrid that will re-tell the story of Sleeping Beauty--only this time it will be told from the perspective of the villain, Maleficent, and feature more gnarled trees, twisted iron fences, and Johnny Depp, obviously.

Burton has been sort of middling for the last decade, but if nothing else it should be refreshing to see someone put a beautiful girl in a coma outside of a Law & Order: SVU date rape story.
