Angelina Jolie's daughter has landed her first film role.

The actress reportedly helped secure four-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt a role in the upcoming movie Maleficent, in which Angelina also stars. The film is a reworking of the classic Sleeping Beauty fairy tale and Vivienne will play the part of Princess Aurora, who is Angelina's on screen daughter.

"Ange thought it would be a fun experience for her and Viv to share, and Viv is a natural," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

"The other kids are now nagging Ange and Brad to land them roles."

Mom-of-six Angelina is said to have persuaded producers on Maleficent to sign up her youngest daughter for the movie.

Hollywood star Angelina plays the lead character of Maleficent and it is reported that Vivienne was a natural choice for the live-action re-imagining of the children's tale.

Production on Maleficent movie is currently underway in London.

Other cast members include Elle Fanning, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Miranda Richardson, Imelda Staunton, Lesley Manville and Sharlto Copley.

The movie is scheduled for release in March 2014.
