Angelina Jolie May Make Royalty Status Official by Playing Cleopatra

Angelina Jolie May Make Royalty Status Official by Playing Cleopatra-photo

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.

    Elizabeth Taylor was far from being Egyptian or Greek -- I'd love to see Angie do it. She's gorgeous and very talented. She's an Earth Goddess!

    mmm i dont know..... good luck AJ,....but I think that role will always be remembered as the one who did Liz Taylor yes i agree! but i love angelina..

    LOL yes she was Greek.........and by the way anyone can play Cleopatra because she's a symbol, a collective myth more than a historical figure. Movies about Cleopatra aren't famous for their historic value

    LOL, I've read this story in a couple of other places, and it's always funny to see that one comment from that one idiot who claims that Cleopatra was African. Of course it's followed by a dozen or so comments saying "She was Greek, dummie." Movies on the subject of Cleopatra are often really melodramatic and cliche anyway. It's a tired subject best left in the history books.

    This is the perfect role for Angelina. Her character is strong just like Cleopatra and her beauty is unsuppressed. I hope Brad does sign on but I doubt it.

    Angelina should! She does great movies and could add a modern touch to when Elizabeth Taylor played Cleopatra. In "a Mighty Heart", Angie played Mariane Pearl, and she did just fine playing someone who was of a different race...I think Angelina would do great in the role- not only for the look, but also for the story and the acting she can bring. I also want to hear what Elizabeth has to say about Angelina playing the role... I hope Brad plays Mark Antony! Angie DID say that they want to do more films together, but are just waiting for the right one to come along....Maybe it's Cleopatra :) Hope so.... I hope Angeline doesnt decide to turn down the role...she might though- its controversial (though that hasnt stopped her before), and its when Brad will most likely be at work for his upcoming films and they said that they "only have one work at a time" so they can have one of them stay with the kids...I think if she does the film, it'll do good :) Maybe even an Oscar???
