James Cameron May Direct CLEOPATRA In 3-D With Angelina Jolie
According to Deadline, James Cameron is considering tackling a 3-D version of CLEOPATRA, starring none other than Angelina Jolie in the title role.
Now before you Avatar fans out there freak out – this is all tentative. Avatar 2 is still very much moving forward; Cameron’s talks with Sony regarding Cleopatra are all VERY much in the beginning stages.
The biggest draw with Cleopatra would be Jolie, who hasn’t even signed on for the role yet. In the past she has shown interest in playing the female pharaoh, and personally, I think she’d be fantastic. Sony is also looking to sign Brad Pitt alongside Jolie as Mark Antony, Cleopatra’s lover.
Cameron’s interest in the film could be based on Bran Helgeland’s script, which apparently has caused Sony to fast track the PG-13 project. Stay tuned for more details!
