James Cameron's Cleopatra?
'Avatar' director James Cameron will reportedly direct Angelina Jolie in a new 3D movie based on the life of Cleopatra.
The 'Avatar' director will reportedly helm the 3-D picture produced by Scott Rudin and based on the book 'Cleopatra: A Life' by Stacy Schiff.
Angelina has already confirmed her interest in the role but admitted she was waiting for a director.
The 35-year-old actress said: "I think if we can get the story right and... a lot about her has not been covered. If we can do something original we will. But no director yet."
Sony Pictures Entertainment Co-Chair Amy Pascal has revealed The Company is anxious to make the movie after screenwriter Bran Helgeland ('Green Zone', 'Robin Hood') wrote a "brilliant script deserving of epic treatment" all about "what the Romans took from Egypt", Deadline.com reports.
'Cleopatra' is set to being shooting in 2011.
'Titanic' director James is currently working on new movie 'The Dive', and developing the 'Avatar' sequel.
A rock musical version of the story - entitled 'Cleo' and starring Catherine Zeta-Jones - is also believed to be in production.
