Los Angeles - India Eisley is to play a younger Angelina Jolie in the forthcoming Disney movie Maleficent.

The 18-year-old actress will feature as the child version of Angelina's character, who goes by the film's title, Maleficent.

Both ladies will portray different ages of the self-proclaimed Mistress of All Evil in the Sleeping Beauty adaptation.

India's past roles include Subject 2/Eve in Kate Beckinsale's Underworld: Awakening and Ashley Juergens on teen television show The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

The film is still in the early stages of signing up actors, and Super 8 star Elle Fanning is rumoured to be playing Princess Aurora, according to Yahoo Movies, while South African actor Sharlto Copley is set to play her father King Stefan.

Angelina spoke earlier this year about starring as one of Disney's most famous villains.

She revealed that she and her six adopted and biological children with fiancé Brad Pitt - Pax, Shiloh, Zaharah. Knox, Vivienne and Maddox - are very excited about her upcoming work.

She told Entertainment Weekly in March: "It's a really great script. I'm having a lot of fun. I've already got my horns fitted. My kids are very happy."
