James Cameron Admits That Directing Angelina Jolie as Cleopatra 'Sounds Hot'

You've had a couple days to digest the possibility that James Cameron may direct Angelina Jolie in a hugely expensive, 3D Cleopatra biopic, so how's that news settling? Cameron himself seems quite taken by the idea: "It’s a subject that’s always fascinated me," he told the NYT today. "So yeah, I’ve been talking to them about it but no decisions have been made. But it sounds hot, doesn’t it? I mean, Angelina Jolie and Cleopatra? To me, that’s like a slam dunk. Whether I wind up doing it or not, I think it’s going to be a great project." And a hot one! [NYT]
