3D Cleopatra With Angelina Jolie Getting Closer!

| Filed under: Angelina JolieFilm Flickers

updates on angelina jolie cleopatra film

Back in October, we heard from James Cameron that a 3D Cleopatra film was in development at Sony.

Now, it looks like progress is finally being made, and according to producer Scott Rudin, a director has almost been chosen. Rumors say that The Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass is a front-runner.

Here's what Rudin had to say about Stacy Schiff's biography Cleopatra: A Life, the film's source material:

"[It's] the first to be written by a woman. It felt like such a blow-the-doors-off-the-hinges idea of how to tell it, impossible to resist. We're pretty close. A lot of directors want to do it, but there is only a handful we'll make it with."

As far as casting is concerned, Rudin has made it clear that he REALLY wants Angelina Jolie for the project:

"Who else could play it? Who do you get if not her? She's a gigantic movie star, a great actress. She's got an unbelievable variety of aspects to her."

We agree. Angelina all the way! As we've said before, she's def right for this role.

Are U pumped to hear that Cleopatra might actually happen soon?

    I love Angelina, but I think she is a bit old for this part - Cleo was much younger. And of course we know that Cleo was of Macedonian descent, so let's not get into the whole race issue again - for historical accuracy, this role should be played by someone of European descent.

    This is the the most gorgeous beautiful woman in the world to play the part.

  3. 3

    Im excited, hope it happens. But im only gona watch it if Angelina stars in it.

    First off all angie looks Nothing like an egyptian. Secondly it has been proven cleo was mulatto. She was 50% greek,, 25% arab and 25% african. Egyptians are brown skinned people, why the fuck is angie playing her? The only person physically to cleo is Leona Lewis (though she's a singer). First they remake Annie with a black kid, and now Cleopatra as a milk white/big lipped woman? hollywood is full of shit

    Ugh! No! Cleopatra as a historical figure is sooooo over-rated, there is a reason why she was the "last" pharaoh. Fuck Cleopatra! Why don't they ever do Nefertiri?!!!!!

  8. 8

    BOOO. I will not watch anything with her in it..

  9. jkf says – reply to this


    great rack

  10. 10

    I thought Will Smith had already convinced them to use his daughter, Willow, for that role.

  11. 11

    I won't be watching it…Too bad they couldn't get someone who can act to play the part. There's still time I guess.

  12. 12

    Re: Blunt – It has not been proven she was mulatto. Historically, there is brief mention that her father had an Egyptian concubine - no proof what so ever that she was Cleo's mother.

  13. 13

    I don't watch anything that has Jolie-the-whore in it.

  14. 14

    I think Halle Berry would be great for the part.

  15. 15

    Re: LexiLuv – Yes, I would so much rather see a movie about Nefertiti! I've been thinking that for years

  16. 16

    She's too old for the part. I think she would muck it up anyway.

  17. 17

    I'm very excited! She is a wonderful actress :)

  18. 18

    A Greek…….. You f***** ass there was no macedonian race by then maybe… a Greek descent because of the Alexander the Great AND HE WAS A GREEK NOT A macedonian that's an area in Greece THEN AND NOW!!!

  19. 19

    She doesnt resemble Cleopatra at all!. SHe has nothing greek !

  20. 20

    Re: The Dude! – OINK OINK went the piggy!

  21. 21

    won't see any movie that comes out in 3D — never worth it

  22. 22

    Angie is PERFECT for it, cant wait :)

  23. 23

    Re: LexiLuv – Noooo, they should do Hatshepsut. Now that's something interesting.

  24. 24

    How doesn't she look Macedonian? lol.

  25. 25

    The only way this could get screwed up is if she plays it with a British accent.

  26. 26

    first of all, historically, Celopatra might have been UGLY, despite all this CRAP with LIZ TAYLOR, etc. and DRAWINGS making her out to be gorgeous. NO, it was HER POWER THAT MADE MEN DROP TO HER FEET. AND, MOST OF THESE POSTERS ARE RIGHT, to be anyway near accurate, someone of darker skin should be portraying her. She became Pharoh of Egypt at 17, committed suicide at 39. Cleopatra married both her brothers around the age of 17, they were 10 and 12….. okay, maybe jolie can play cleo

  27. 27

    Well, since Cleopatra married her brother(s), I think that Angelina would be perrrrfect!

  28. 28

    Do Salt 2…I don't want to see Angelina as Cleo..

  29. 29

    YES!! YES!!

  30. 30

    Yuck. I'm so sick of that skank.

  31. 31

    Forget Cleopatra! I was really hoping for a film about Nefertiti and Akenaten, maybe played by Adrien Brody.

  32. 32

    Re: LexiLuv – That's what I say! Angie could fill the role perfectly. It would have politics, religion, court intrigue, a dying, crazy Pharoah. Hollywood has shit for brains.

  33. 33

    I get that she's a big movie star and she can bring in the $$$ but try someone new, fresher, younger there are so many actresses out there who could do a very good job. Besides Cleopatra wasn't white, Hollywood look 4 someone with a natural tan at least.

  34. 34

    ZZZ… what a snoozefest..

  35. 35

    I would have loved to have seen an updated and historically accurate Cleopatra film, they have ruined it by casting Jolie in the role - she just CANNOT act, sure she looks pretty but she wrecks every film she's in….btw - somebody get their boobs done at all?

  36. 36

    I am I saw angelina in a similar movie years ago and thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world that was before she used her looks to become a husband stealing shrew then became ugly as I could see the insides it broke my heart to see someone with that much beauty weilding it for negative purposes. Shes not beautiful to me anymore I see ugliness in her soul now. Stealing fiances and husbands is just really uncool all around and kinda mean. The movie itself sounds good I think salma hayek is the more beautiful and kind hearted woman

  37. 37

    Re: Kimberbunny – too bad she is one of the few who can act in hollywood.

    Re: angiecat08 – That is the saddest thing I've ever heard! All she can do is either "Crazy bitch" or "Duck lipped douche." She acts like Ted Kennedy drove; lousy!

    i don't like the 3-D aspect of the project
    most of critics spared Jolie when they trashed Alexander, saying she was the only good thing in that movie where she played Olympia, Alexander the great's mother.

    She knows how to play those characters, she is great actress, a the 6 years old controversy and her attraction for action movies does not help her establishing herself as a equivalent to winslet or athaway or an heir to Meryl Streep but Mighty Heart, Changelling, Good Shepherd, Gia, George Wallace and Girl Interupted (all movies for which she has had nominations or won important awards oscards, sag, critics choice, golden globes) has already proven how serious this actress is…

    so who is nefertiri, is that a band youre a fan of ?
