Think you can handle Angelina Jolie in 3-D? Better brace yourself, because her upcoming "Cleopatra" film may be getting the multidimensional treatment.
Deadline.com reports that "Avatar" filmmaker James Cameron hopes to direct Jolie in the still-in-development biopic and wants to turn the movie into a big-budget, 3-D extravaganza.
Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal is said to be equally eager to get the movie made, thanks to a brilliant script and the simple fact that Jolie was born to play the role.
For her part, Jolie, 35, has reportedly had a lifelong fascination with Cleopatra, and when asked about playing the Queen of the Nile in a movie, she said in July, "I would be honored." Deadline reports that she has since gotten more involved with the project and has been doing a great deal of research on her subject.
"We are trying to uncover the truth about her as a leader and not just a sex symbol, which she really wasn't," Jolie has said. "She didn't have many lovers, maybe only two, and they're men she had children with."
The "Cleopatra" movie, which focuses on what the Romans took from Egypt, is based on Stacy Schiff's novel "Cleopatra: A Life." Like Sony's Pascal, Schiff has said Jolie would make the ideal Cleo.
"Physically," said Schiff, "she's the perfect look."
-EVEN as VAST eugenics programs are exposed worldwide, and as we learn 'caring'Jolie is herself a full-fledged
member of eugenocide consolidation central –the Council On Foriegn Relations, NO SIGN of consciousnes, much
less conscience, let alone repentance, from RED China 'eco' YOU-genocide pre-programming and promoting

FACT: WE ARE UNCERTAIN OF CLEOPATRA'S MOTHER OR HER PATERNAL GRANDMOTHER
50% TO 75% OF GENETIC HERITAGE UNKNOWN. UNLESS YOU MR.& MRS. HISTORIAN
CAN GIVE US THE NAMES OF CLEOPATRA MOTHER AND PATERNAL GRANDMOTHER?
MANY SCHOLARS DO BELIEVE CLEOPATRA PATERNAL GRANDMOTHER WAS A
CONCUBINE...CLEOPATRA WAS NOT THE DAUGHTER OF A ROYAL WIFE.
TRUE WE DO NOT KNOW IF HER MOTHER WAS ANOTHER RELATIVE, MOST
LIKELY THEY WERE EGYPTIAN OR SEMITIC AFRICAN. I AM WILLING TO
ACCEPT SHE WAS A WOMEN OF COLOR....LONG TIME AGO WE WENT
BY THE STANDARDS OF IF YOU WERE WHITE AND HAD ONE DROP OF
BLACK BLOOD YOU WERE CONSIDERED BLACK, REMEMBER.....(FUNNY)
NOW WHEN IT COMES TO A EDUCATED, BEAUTIFUL WOMEN WE WANT TO
SAY SHE IS....ANYWAY, I DID MY PART...I EXPRESSED MYSELF...I TOLD THE
TRUTH....I DID NOT EXCEPT THE LIE....I WILL NEVER AGAIN LIVE IN DARKNESS.
To all the people commenting above: Cleopatra was Greek, she would have looked Greek. Alexander wasn't Roman he was Greek and Ptolemy was Greek also. Cleopatra and her son were the last of Ptolemaic Greeks to rule Egypt. Marc Antony was a Roman. His name was actually Marcus Antonius so Marc Antony or Mark Anthony are both anglicized versions of the name, though Marc Antony is more accepted.
Woman of Color or not... I'm WHite, and I think HAlle Berry, a proven Academy Award winner would be the Best choice to play Cleopatra ! I'm still wowed at her performance in the 007' smash as the only American Bond GIRL ever, playing across from hunk Pierce Brosnan, in " Die Another Day" Now that is what you call class, beauty and talent !!! Halle has also played great roles with other top male stars such as, John Travolta and Hugh Jackman..... Almost every movie Angelina Jolie has made has bombed at the bow office after only One week.... even the movie she did directed by Clint Eastwood.... This wasn't Clint's fault... It was another poor performance by JOlIE !!! Anjelina would have never even gotten as far as she has if she hadn't been the daughter of one of the Best Actors Hollywood has ever know, even today, Jon Voight !! So if Cameron wants his " Cleopatra" film to bomb after it's first week.... Cast Angelina Jolie !!!!
THE PTOLEMIES HAD THE CUSTOM OF INTERMARRING & HAVING RELATIONSHIPS WITH CONCUBINES
WHO FILLED THEIR PALACES, MANY CHILDRENS WERE BORN OF THESE UNIONS AND WERE GIVEN
PLACES IN THE ROYAL LINEAGE DESPITE BEING ILLEGITIMATE. CLEOPATIA GRANDFATHER AULETES WAS
A DIRECT DESCENDANT OF ALEXANDER THE GREATS "GENERAL", EVEN ONE OF HIS WIFES WAS
ARTACAMA DAUGHTER OF THE PERSIAN ARTABAZUS. I AM SO TIRED OF LIES, HOLLYWOOD
AND THE CHURCHES HAVE GONE SO FAR AS TO EVEN LIE ABOUT JESUS CHRIST, MAKING HIM
BLOND WITH BLUE EYES..
PEOPLE IN AMERICA WHO ARE PEOPLE OF COLOR.. KNOW THE TRUTH...CLEOPATRA IS A WOMEN
OF COLOR...IT SORTA LIKE THE AMERICAN BLACK WE ALL KNOW THERE IS A GREAT CHANGE THAT
MANY OF THEM COULD HAVE BLOOD TIES TO VERY IMPORTANT WHITES LIVING IN THE WORLD..
IT HAPPENS, WE MOVE FORWARD IF WE JUST ADMIT THE TRUTH STOP LYING TO EACH OTHER.
JOLIE IS A ACTRESS. THIS IS HER JOB. THERE ARE SO MANY WOMEN OF COLOR WHO ARE
ACTRESSES , AND HOLLYWOOD REFUSED TO GIVE IT TO A WOMEN OF COLOR, I WONDER
WHY... AGAIN THIS IS A INSULT TO ALL WOMEN OF COLOR..
its a great idea.my favorite director is james cameron.and i like all of his movies...but i dont know where this idea comesfrom???he was busy with battle angel and series of avatar.and even in his page at wikipedia there been nothing about making a movie about cleopatra..but about hiroshima atomic bomb.or etc....
i like him much better when he makes sci_fi movie.like terminator
any way i got one project for him my self...but i got no way to tell him about it...
it realy great sci_fi space project...i wish i could make a contact to him.
love u james
ANTICOHOS III KING OF SYRIA WAS CLEOPATRA FATHER. A SYRIAN -PEOPLE OF COLOR.
ANOTHER QUEEN OF COLOR WAS ZENOBIA OUEEN OF SYRIAN CITY OF PALYMRA.
MOSES OF THE BIBLE MARRIED A WOMEN OF COLOR, REMEMBER CHRISITANS.....ZIPPORAH
(NUMBERS 12:1-5) HIS SISTER MIRIAM HAS A PROBLEM WITH THIS....AND THE RICH KING
SOLOMON FELL IN LOVE WITH A WOMEN OF COLOR THE SHULAMMITE WHO SAID IN
HEBREW, "BLACK I AND COMELY" OR IN OTHER WORDS A BLACK GIRL I AM!
HOLLYWOOD HAS LIEDS TO US ALL THEY HAVE PROTRAYED WHITES IN MANY
MOVIES WHEN IN REALITY THEY WERE PEOPLE OF COLOR.....WHAT A INSULT
ANTICOHOS III KING OF SYRIA was as much of a Greek-Macedonian as Cleopatra was. They both belonged to the Greek-Macedonian royal families who rose to power After Alexander the Great, so in other words ANTICOHOS III KING OF SYRIA and Cleopatra were both white Europeans.
For her role in this film I highly recommend she read the fictional/historical book "Cleopatra's daughter" By Michelle Moran. This again is fiction but it has a lot of REAL information in it. Would be great reference material.
angie,brad, kardashians, biber come to mind need a real job 9-5 also bruce jenner.
FACT: Cleopatra was the descendant of general Ptolemy, who was a general under the Macedonian Alexander (as in the Great) Her ancestors were white – maybe a bit swarthy (as those southern Euros tend to be), but white.
Whoa those lips in 3-D..lol
A white Cleopatra!? LMAO! Next they'll make a movie with a white Jesus!....oh wait....that's been done already....
Vivien Leigh was an awesome cleopatra

FACT: MOST WOMEN OF ANGLO, HAVE ALWAYS WANT TO BE SISTERS TO WOMEN OF COLOR.
AND WOMEN OF COLOR HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE SISTER TO WOMEN OF ANGLO
EVEN THO THERE IS A PERFECTLY GOOD CHANCE THAT CLEOPATRA WAS A
AFRICAN EGYPTIAN WOMAN. WE CAN ALWAYS LEARN FROM EACH OTHER.
My research shows she would have indeed been a beautiful woman of color , especially due to the region of her origin and her heritage , she was also part greek I believe and not many know this but her liniage also connected to Alexander The Great, and Ptolomey.(hundreds of years earlier. Who were Roman! :) She was well versed in several languages, very cultured woman of the world and she Reigned with dignity and grace. Which I believe is part of the reason people are so facinated by her.
I love Angelina Jolie. But with all due respect Cleopatra was a woman of color not Anglo. How are they gonna pull that off?
cleo was actually greek... look it up!
Jolie is much lighter than Cleopatra could possibly have been. Look THAT uip! Now Halle Berry playing the part would make more sense.
Cleo wasn't black and Angie isn't Anglo. Greeks are swarthy whites, like Italians.
Is everyone completely insane!!! I love Angelina and Elizabeth Taylor but do really think Cleopatra was a pasty white woman with blue eyes?!?! Im so sick of Hollywood and WHITE washed versions of history. I could do without the remake all together, the original picture was epic even with its gross oversights.
She doesn't fit for Cleopatra roll. She better just stick to cheap action rolls.
Elizabeth Taylor was perfect for the roll. Why does hollywood keep wasting sh!t ton of money on remaking films?
Are they running out of ideas? There's absolutely no point of remaking the original in this case.
Sorry to break it to you but the Taylor movie was also a remake. Claudette Colbert and Vivien Leigh also starred as Cleopatra. Colbert's movie (pre-code) even included a highly risque 'milk bath' scene.
Russell Crowe HAS to play Marc. would be the best movie ever!!
I don't see why she's perfect for the part, what am I missing here, she needs tons of makeup to look half way descent and she's a toothpick and I really don't find her to be a good actress. I think there are much better choices out there besides her to play the part. When I read this, I couldn't think of anyone to play Caesar and Anthony, that's going to be an interesting cast, but they will never match the Elizabeth Taylor movie that's a true classic.
Why not? She can kick ass in the Cleo movie. Marc Anthony watch out!
How do they know? Cleo's been dead for a few thousand years. According to ancient accounts, she was quite homely!
James Cameron can go f\_/ck himself with his 3-D nonsense.
