One of Skrein's next projects is the anticipated sequel to Disney's "Maleficent," where he'll reportedly play a villain -- once again -- opposite Angelina Jolie and one very impressive cast.

Though details about the film are still pretty scarce, Skrein is ready to get started.

"I'm so excited and honored and humbled to be part of such an amazing cast, Angelina Jolie, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elle Fanning, these are people that I'm huge fans of their works and have so much respect for them and am very much looking forward to working with them, learning from them and growing as an actor through working with them," he said. "I've been in prep for the last couple of weeks and seeing the sets, they're phenomenal and it's just really exciting to be a part of."

'Maleficent 2' Star Ed Skrein Talks 'High Caliber' Sequel With Michelle Pfeiffer & Angelina Jolie (Exclusive)

Maleficent 2, the long-awaited sequel to Disney's 2014 hit based on Sleeping Beauty, will not disappoint, according to one of the movie's actors.

At the In Darkness premiere on Wednesday — which hits theaters and OnDemand on May 25 — Ed Skrein exclusively dished to ET's Ash Crossan about what it was like working with the sequel's A-list stars, Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer.

"I mean, all you want to do is work with people that can improve you as an actor. People that you respect, and, you know, Angelina, Michelle Pfeiffer, this is a phenomenal cast," the 35-year-old actor said in praise of the movie. "People that I respect and [have] been watching for years and have a human respect for as well as a professional respect."

Along with Jolie starring in the titular role of Maleficent and Pfiffer playing Queen Ingris, Jenn Murray, Elle Fanning and Chiwetel Ejiofor are all set to star in the film.

In addition to the great cast, Skrein was excited for the film because it's a little more family-friendly than his typical role.

"It's Disney man. It's great fun," Skrein said. "Its finally something that my nieces and nephews and my children can enjoy and watch instead of this fool mouth, dark, stuff that I usually do."

His dark streak continues with his role In Darkness, which is about a blind musician who hears a murder in the apartment upstairs.

  1. Fussy, Brad recorded all his weatherman segments last year for Jim Jeffries show.

    Jim Jefferies Reveals the Secret Behind Brad Pitt’s Weatherman Appearances — Turn It On Podcast
    m Jefferies has a secret to tell about Brad Pitt. The movie actor has shown up several times on Comedy Central’s “The Jim Jefferies Show” as its unofficial weatherman, casually sharing the horrors of climate change. But here’s the truth: Pitt hasn’t dropped by in a year.

    “This is the one that went viral, even though it was recorded a year ago,” Jefferies said of a recent Brad Pitt segment. The show had leftover footage of Brad doing a LeBron James joke, which felt timely because of the NBA playoffs. Slayer guitarist Kerry King happened to be on set, so they put him in front of a green screen, and it looked like the musician was a fan trying to talk to him.

    “And then Gayle King is on the news going, ‘Wow, Brad Pitt must really love Jim Jefferies, he’s back on the show!’ I should be lying and saying he came back in,” Jefferies said.

    But the truth may be even more interesting: Even though “The Jim Jefferies Show” is finding old, unused footage of Brad Pitt to keep the gag going, the relationship is real. Pitt was a fan of Jefferies’ FX series “Legit,” and came in twice to record bits for his Comedy Central show. “He also recorded a whole heap of stuff just on the phone,” Jefferies said. “Sometimes it will be the middle of the night and I’ll get a text message from Brad Pitt, and it would be him in Venice on a canal, doing his own script and everything.”

    Jefferies said he might still find more on the cutting room floor to keep having Pitt on, “or I might be ballsy enough to text him in a few days and ask him… but I feel like leaving him alone now, I think he’s done enough. He was just super nice and asked to do the show. He liked my standup. I think possibly after he met me he was less enamored.”
