Pirates of the Caribbean 5 co-director Joachim Rønning is currently in talks to direct MALEFICENT 2.

Norwegian director Joachim Rønning may be adding another Disney film to his credentials as he’s in talks to direct the Maleficent sequel, starring Angelina Jolie.

Rønning, who has co-directed several films with Espen Sandberg, including Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, looks to be directing solo this time around.

Maleficent 2 will be produced by Joe Roth, with the screenplay written by Jez Butterworth (Edge of Tomorrow) and veteran Disney film writer Linda Woolverton (Maleficent, Alice Through the Looking Glass, 1991’s Beauty and the Beast).
