Angelina Jolie To Play Cleopatra?

Angelina Jolie may be taking on the role of Cleopatra in an upcoming project!

Author Stacey Schiff, who will release a biography of Cleopatra soon through publishing house Little, Brown, has already sold the rights to her book to film producer Scott Rudin (No Country for Old Men, Revolutionary Road, I Heart Huckabees).

Scott‘s office told USA Today that the film “is being developed for and with Jolie.”

“Physically, [Angelina]‘s the perfect look,” Stacey shared.

    I doubt this is true as she has other movies lined up but if it were, she’d be a great Cleopatra – with those eyes, perfect. It’s hard to follow Liz Taylor but if anyone could, it would be Angie.

    My bad. I read that it is being developed “for and with” Angelina. As for her ability to play this part…..She is amazingly talented, unlike a certain wanna-be movie star, and, has not only the looks, but, the “chops” to do a da*n good job.

    I’ll believe it when it comes from her.Otherwise,i think she’ll be a great Cleopatra,with her beauty,poise,voice and most of all,talent.

    I would take it with a grain of salt till a site like EW, Variety, Deadline, or THR reports it. This sounds like the Sleeping Beauty story that the LA TImes reported back in January but was never confirmed.

    “physically perfect for the role”


    Erm, except that she’s white.

    @Caesar’s mistress: HA!!!!! That was funny. XD ….. Why is everyone insisting on claiming that she is “perfect”?! It makes no sense. Nobody’s perfect. Period. However, you can state if you want that if there’s someone close to perfection, Angelina is that person! Anyway, she is quite wonderfully gorgeous (though too skinny) and talented so I think she’d be a great Cleopatra. But I think they should give a chance to new actors or actresses, why put the same ol’ actors in all movies. Ugh. There are tons of beautiful women who could play that part. And sorry for pointing that out, but although Angelina has pretty eyes and bone structure, she is a Caucasian. I know it’s time to forget about “racism” and I am not racist in any way, but there are millions of women who look more like Cleopatra did look (according to reseaches…..). Isn’t it a bit unfair to put her as this Egyptian lady?! Now come on!

    Gross. Skeletor isn’t a sexy look. And more brown-face/ black-face for Angelina? I’m so over this trick..

    Halli Says:

    Elizabeth Taylor was sexy and could pull it off…. Angelina has seriously lost her looks. Sad to say. Go ahead and flame me.
