We've been hearing hear-says about Angie's taking the role of Cleopatra in a movie remake of the same title (much to some people’s dismay), and yes there has been progress going on with it.
35-year-old Jolie is anxious to play the role of the Queen of the Nile from which Elizabeth Taylor first took in 1963. She said to the Telegraph that is not going to be a sexy role, they want to show a different side of this icon of beauty.
During Taylor’s iteration of the role which was adapted from a novel by Stacy Schiff entitled Cleopatra: A Life, Taylor's real-life partner Richard Burton also portrayed the role of Marc Antony. With Angie's upcoming redo, fans alike are made to wonder if the producers have Brad Pitt in mind to take over the role for the remake.
On a side note, I couldn't help but hope that creators of this remake will have a slight glitch in Jolie's outfit, like letting her wear gladiator stilettos as she looks uber hot on it! =P
