Angelina Jolie May Make Royalty Status Official by Playing Cleopatra

Celebuzz / June 10, 2010

She’s already pretty much the queen of celebrities, so we guess it makes sense that Angelina Jolie should just go ahead and play the Queen of the Nile.

The Salt beauty is reportedly being eyed to star in the film adaptation of Stacy Schiff’s biography Cleopatra: A Wife. According to a rep for producer Scott Rudin (No Country for Old Men, Fantastic Mr. Fox, There Will Be Blood), his adaptation is already “being developed for and with Jolie.”

That choice is just fine with authoress Schiff, who notes, 

“Physically, she’s the perfect look.”

Well, sure; aside from the whole not-being-Egyptian thing.

Does this mean that Brad Pitt will be signing on to portray Mark Antony? We can only hope so…

Do you think Angelina is a good choice for Cleopatra? If not her, then who? Let us know in the comments section.
