Maleficent 2 May Have Director

Joachim Rønning In Talks To Direct Disney's 'Maleficent 2'

The actress and director previously revealed she would be returning for the sequel at the Telluride Film Festival where she debuted her new film First They Killed My Father.

"Maleficent", directed by Robert Stromberg, was a hit with fans, earning $758,539,785 off a reported $180 million budget. Free from caring about Maleficent 2! It's possible that Disney ordered a rewrite because the studio wasn't too confident in Woolverton after her most recent film, Alice Through the Looking Glass, crashed and burned previous year. Sadly, that calm time has ended as Deadline just claimed that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tails director Joachim Rønning is in talks to take the film on. It's unclear if he was considered for the Maleficent sequel.

RBI maintains status quo; repo rate retained at 6 percent
However, retail inflation rose to a five-month high of 3.36% in August due to costlier vegetables and fruits. While the repo rate stay at 6 per cent, reverse repo rate will also remain unchanged at 5.75 per cent.

No release date is set yet, but I imagine Maleficent 2 will be in theaters in 2020 or 2021. While I thoroughly enjoyed Maleficent and Alice in Wonderland, I was massively disappointed with Alice Through the Looking Glass, so much so that I don't think I could stand to watch the first Alice film ever again.
