James Cameron May Direct Angelina Jolie in Cleopatra


Well, how's this for a power couple: according to Deadline, Sony is trying to entice James Cameron into directing Angelina Jolie in a megabudgeted, 3D version of Cleopatra. Jolie's been attached to the project for quite some time, but it's the addition of Cameron that puts Cleopatra into a whole other realm; should a deal be worked out, he'd likely helm this picture before segueing into Avatar 2. Sadly, this will probably put the final kibosh on Steven Soderbergh's own 3D take on Cleopatra, a musical that was intended to star Catherine Zeta-Jones. Between this and producing Solaris, James Cameron isn't exactly doing wonders for his pal Soderbergh's career, is he? [Deadline]
