Angelina Jolie will apparently be joined by two more of her children in her new movie Maleficent.

The Hollywood star - who has six kids with fiance Brad Pitt - is already working with her four-year-old daughter Vivienne on the fairytale spin-off, and it seems their eight-year-old son Pax and seven-year-old daughter Zahara are also joining the movie, according to People.

Vivienne was cast as a young Princess Aurora earlier this year, after her mum decided she would be perfect for the part.

And it has now emerged that Pax and Zahara will apparently have walk-on parts in a christening scene in the flick, which is currently filming in London.

Us Weekly reports that the couple's daughter Shiloh was also lined up for a role in the film, but the six-year-old, who appeared in her dad's movie The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button four years ago, decided against it.

A source said: "Shiloh was supposed to be in it, too, but she was bored and not in the mood during the day her part was supposed to happen, so she ended up not being in the film."

Maleficent follows the Sleeping Beauty sorceress and also stars Sam Riley, Juno Temple, Miranda Richardson and Elle Fanning, who will play an older Aurora.

The 3D film is scheduled for release in 2014.
