Angelina Jolie To Play Cleopatra
Angelina Jolie has been confirmed to take the role of Cleopatra in an upcoming historical biographic film, Queen of the Nile, Cleopatra: A Life.
The movie will be adapted from Stacy Schiff‘s book under the publisher Little, Brown. "Angelina Jolie radiates grace and power, exactly the qualities that Stacy Schiff finds in her biography of the most intriguing ruler who ever lived," said Little, Brown publisher Michael Pietsch.
Schiff is excited for Jolie to portray the famous Egyptian queen. "I think she’d be perfect for it and I can see a possible Oscar in her future," she said. "Physically, she’s got the perfect look."
Producer Scott Rudin, (Julie & Julia, No Country for Old Men, Doubt) acquired the rights on Thursday. There is currently no word on who Rudin has in mind to play Cleopatra’s love interest, Mark Antony. –Natthakan Garunrangseewong
