OMG! That would be amazing!

James Cameron recently divulged that the Cleopatra film, possibly starring Angelina Jolie, does not have to be a fantasy as the project is still in development.

He said:

"There's a Cleopatra project in work, meaning that it's been in development at Sony. And it's a subject that's always fascinated me. So yeah, I've been talking to them about it. But no decisions have been made.

But it sounds hot, doesn't it? I mean, Angelina Jolie and Cleopatra? To me, that's like a slam dunk. Whether I wind up doing it or not, I think it's going to be a great project."

Sony Pictures Entertainment Co-Chair Amy Pascal fast-tracked the project after screenwriter Brian Helgeland turned in a "brilliant script". The movie, based on the book Cleopatra: A Life, is aiming for PG-13 rating and planned to be released in 3-D.

    Why does it need to be in 3-D? Bio pics do not need to be in 3-D!



  2. 2

    Angelina will NEVER be as good as Elizabeth Taylor.

    give it up and go raise your kids….they need more than the 4 nannies you use.



  3. 3

    Why do people choose beautiful women like Elizabeth Taylor and Angelina Jolie, to play Cleopatra , when she wasn't exactly "gorgeous" herself ?. I think Elizabeth Taylor was the best though, i just saw that movie of hers recently, she was amazing.



  4. 4

    Why are they casting a white actress? Cleopatra was not white, america is so racist



  5. 5

    Angelina would be great - but it would be more accurate if she was a bit younger. Remember - Cleo was of Greek heritage, so her skin color is fine.



  6. 6

    What the f*ck? I thought Cleopatra was black?! Why couldn't they get Halle Berry to do it? That's messed up! You might as well make a movie about MLK and have flippin' Brad Pitt play him. Bull sh*t!



  7. 7

    Brad Pitt as Marc Antony!



  8. 8

    They better give her BLONDE hair, and green contacks!
    P.S. Cleopatra dies at 38! how old is Angy?



  9. 9

    sounds good



  10. 10

    FYI Cleopatra was Greek, not black, and as for the whole Angelina as Cleopatra thing, just another really bad idea! Bad, bad, bad



  11. 11

    She's in it? Not going!



  12. 12

    Re: cottonpink91 – Actually , Cleopatra was Macedonian, aka White , European.



  13. 13

    yeah. I could of swore cleopatra was african. but i do love angelina.



  14. 14

    Re: BuffyCakes – um she was macedonia
    maybe youre thinking of nefertiti



  15. 15

    She should play Skeletor in the He-Man movie. It would be a much better fit.



  16. 16

    Re: bkfinest006 – Nope, not African. By the time Cleo was born Egypt had been under colonial Greek rule for almost 300 years. During that time, the Greeks did not intermarry with the locals.



  17. 17

    Re: cottonpink91 – You're right, the whole country is racist because James Cameron has no common sense. YOU'RE A FUCKING MORON!!!



  18. 18

    Angelina is agood actress but seriously give the role 2 someon else, someone new. why is hollywood always choosing white people for the majority of roles it's time 2 mix it up more.



  19. 19

    Why not get someone who can act!? Shes a poser! I won't be seeing that movie if shes in it.



  20. 20

    Have to say I find her to be a boring/overrated actress - she's only famous for her personal life and the spin she creates around herself. She should get an Oscar for self-promotion. I found her recent comments about making 'packed lunches' for her family hilarious - as if that woman even knows what a piece of bread looks like, let alone where the kitchen is in their mansion. Nice try at playing the Supermom angle sweetie…

    overrated actress and the cleo thing is just type-casting. what was the last good movie she was in?



  22. 22

    Uhm I love Angelina like the next person. But can we please get a woman of color to play cleopatra as she WAS AN AFRICAN. Just cause she got brown babies dont mean she can play her. Lover her but Im tired of whites playing blacks, like colored folks never did shit.



  23. 23

    AMAZING!



  24. 24

    OMG she will rock it!



  25. 25

    I love Angie.. but if she makes this movie i will be soooo mad. She is exotic for a white girl.. but just not exotic enough… James Cameron is super liberal i am surprised he doesn't see that the image doesn't work >_



  26. 26

    Cleopatra was part Greek/Macedonian and part Iranian. Not African. Go do some research on her family background.

    Personally, I think Leonor Varela did a superb job. Don't see why there has to be yet ANOTHER remake. . .



  27. 27

    Yes, I've taken a few history classes and some on Greece and Rome. Cleopatra was not black, as in what we call black today. She also wasn't beautiful. I don't believe Jolie is the right fit simply because she is not that decent of an actress. Do you guys NOT remember Alexander???

    She's too old, not that talented, and doesn't have the right "look." I thought Lyndsey Marshal was superb in Rome.

    Re: Leitmotif – She was African, I base my opinion on first hand knowledge and research. Like actually going to Africa and conducting ethnography research, not relying on books to quantify everything.



  29. 29

    Re: BuffyCakes
    Oh Lord are there actually people who still believe Cleopatra was African? Go look up some facts people….



  30. 30

    Re: BuffyCakes – Cleopatra was NOT Black. Egypt may have had a couple of Nubian Queens but the majority were in fact white. Try looking up pictures of Nefertiti's bust, for heaven's sake

    angy go raise your kids, homewrecker!!!!

    What a joke! I saw a fantastic show on the History Channel where they determined what the 'real' Cleopatra looked like. And they showed the Computer generated image and she looked just like a young Barbara Streisand! She absolutely did not look like Liz Taylor. Angelie Jolie does not look ANYTHING like the real Cleopatra. And after pumping out 3 children within a couple of years (plus adopting 3 children) she is looking a little 'tired' lately.



  34. 34

    James Cameron! UGH! He is becoming really annoying. I got on imdb.com and counted the number of wives he has had. The guy is a train wreck! Linda Hamilton claims he dumped her after she was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. Not very loyal is he? Definitely not the man who you can depend on to be there with you down the road. Too vain and selfish!



  35. 35

    Re: Snarkysnark – TRUE! Cleopatra was definitely not black. She wasn't even Egyptian. But…….I think her mother was her sister. It's kinda like in the movie "Chinatown". Look it up!



  36. 36

    Excellent choice! Angie is exotic and will revive Cleopatra story. Elizabeth was great in the role too but this time you will be awed and fully entertained. Angie is lucky she can be an actor and a great mom at the same time. She is lucky to employ many nannies and there is nothing wrong with that picture. Must be Maniston out here with her jealous rants again.

    Re: sidewalks – Although Angelina is a decent actress, I don't think she is anything great. I have to be honest and don't believe she nor Brad Pitt deserve the money they have made. And frankly, I don't like her personality. Yes, it must be nice to have all that money and pay another woman to do all the work it takes to raise children. And of course, she doesn't come close to Liz Taylors freakish beauty and bears no likeness to the real Cleopatra.
