James Cameron: Jolie as Cleopatra 'sounds hot'

Add James Cameron to the list of people pulling for Angelina Jolie to star as Cleopatra.

The "Avatar" director told the New York Times that he’s been in talks to work on the film, which reportedly would be a vehicle for the Oscar winning actress. Cameron said the subject has always fascinated him and the choice of Jolie to play the Egyptian queen  “sounds hot.”

“I mean, Angelina Jolie and Cleopatra? To me, that’s like a slam dunk,” Cameron said. “Whether I wind up doing it or not, I think it’s going to be a great project.”

Reports that the biopic may be filmed in 3-D were better received than the initial news that Jolie would play Cleopatra, which led to an outcry that Hollywood has consistently bypassed casting an actress of color in the role.

As news about his daughter Lindsay’s return to rehab spread at the end of September, Michael Lohan was open about his intent to find two conservators for his daughter to keep watch over her finances and her social life, saying, "I just want Lindsay's life and career to be guided by people who are in it with their hearts, not their hands.”

However, a few weeks later, Michael now says that he’ll be keeping mum on anything to do with his daughter or his ex-wife, Dina.
