Way back in July, Angelina Jolie's name was being attached to an Elizabeth Taylor biopic who famously played Cleopatra in 1963 about the Egyptian queen. While we haven't heard anything about the project since, it now appears that Jolie is skipping the Taylor approach and may do so with James Cameron behind the lens.
Deadline reports that Cameron and Sony are currently in discussion about making a new film about Cleopatra, based on the book by Stacy Schiff. Jolie is already attached to the project while Brian Helgeland, who won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for L.A. Confidential, is writing the script. Deadline does put in the caveat that while they're seriously considering having Cameron come on, there's no "certainty that it will happen." If they do decide to make another Cleopatra movie they could not do much better than Angelina Jolie and James Cameron.
