Doesn't qualify for the database since it isn't going to be animated, but I definitely think Maleficent qualifies for a... "say what?!" 

Essentially it will be a life-action re-telling of Sleeping Beauty with Angelina Jolie in the title role. Jude Law (Stefan) and Elle Fanning (Aurora) are also rumoured to be in the film that will come out in 2014.

Between this and the two different re-tellings of Snow White that are supposed to come out this year, I'm really thinking Hollywood has convinced itself that it can't come up with an original story anymore... which is honestly kinda sad.

Could be worse.  Could be Michael Bay turning the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles into the Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles.
