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?

Matt Damon Talks Bourne Franchise

Filed under: Matt DamonFilm Flickers

Although Universal is moving forward with the fourth installment of the Jason Bourne franchise, The Bourne Legacy, without the star and the director, Matt Damon has not ruled out returning to the role that made him an action star.

It just might be a while!

Damon said:

“I really hope it’s going to happen. It’s really up to Paul Greengrass, the director. I’ve always said I won’t do it without him and I think it would be a bad idea to do it without Paul.

I think Paul’s probably going to do one or two other films that he’s got kind of cooking but after that [maybe they would start working on a Bourne film]. I think it’s kind of the thing where enough time has passed that I think it won’t matter if we wait five more years to do it.

We just want to make sure if we do it, that we do it right. There’s been a lot of pressure for us to do it obviously but that’s that moment I think where you got to step back and make sure you’re not making a mistake. So when it feels like the right time, I think Paul would be open to doing it.”

We'd love it! Luckily, we're extremely patient.

The Bourne Legacy Gets A Director!

Filed under: Matt DamonFilm Flickers

It looks like the fourth installment of the Bourne movies is moving right along - and with or without Matt Damon!

Michael Clayton director Tony Gilroy has been hired to write and director the latest in the franchise, The Bourne Legacy!

However, Damon has previously stated that he would only return as the forgetful assassin if the director of the second and third films, Paul Greengrass, was attached, and Universal apparently has no problem re-casting the actor!

Inneresting!

What do U think?? Should a fourth Bourne be made without Matt?
