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.
"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.

We would love to see this combination! Although would they do this in 3D?
Sources have confirmed that Avatar and Titanic director James Cameron is currently in early talks with Sony Pictures about the possibility of directing Angelina Jolie in Cleopatra.
The script is based on Stacy Schiff's book Cleopatra: A Life, and it's being written by Brian Helgeland, whose last epic feature script was Russell Crowe's Robin Hood.
The film is being produced by Scott Rudin, who recently produced
everything The Social Network.
Quite the team behind this one! We'll be keeping our ears open for updates.
How do U feel about the possibly of James Cameron directing Cleopatra? Do U think he could make this better than Avatar?
