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?

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?

"Physically, she's the perfect look."
