Ang Lee to direct Angelina Jolie in Cleopatra?

Jan 10 2013, 10:16am CST | by

Ang Lee wants to direct Angelina Jolie in 'Cleopatra'.

The 'Life of Pi' director has revealed he could be signing on to helm the biopic starring the Hollywood A-lister, as it ''feels right'' and is different from the projects he has done in the past.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he said: ''I'm about to read the script. It just feels right to me after all the other types of films I've done.

''What does it have in common with any of them? They're all totally different! That's what makes this perfect.''

The project - which is based on Stacy Schiff's book, 'Cleopatra: A Life' - has been in development since 2010 and been passed around several directors.

'The Social Network' helmer David Fincher gave up the reins last August, while 'Avatar' director James Cameron and 'The Bourne Ultimatum' director Paul Greengrass have also been linked to the picture.

Scott Rudin is producing the film for Sony based on a script from Eric Roth.

In the dramatic biography, Schiff claims Cleopatra - best known for her romances with Marc Antony and Julius Caesar - married both of her brothers and slaughtered them.

The late Elizabeth Taylor is most synonymous with the role of Cleopatra, playing the Egyptian queen in 1963.

Ray Fisher Says He Didn’t Know He Was Getting a Solo CYBORG Movie

Oct 21 2014 7:33pm CDT | Source: Collider

Apparently now that Warner Bros. has unveiled the release dates for its DC movie slate, the stars can start talking about the films – to a degree.  Just yesterday we shared some quotes from Jason Momoa on Aquaman and now we’ve got Ray Fisher talking Cyborg, too. The guy doesn’t have a single feature film credit to his name, but soon enough, he’ll have two pretty big ones – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League Part One.  On top of that, much to Fisher’s surprise ...

The Hulk Sequel We'll Never See...REVEALED

Sep 22 2014 10:30am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Remember Hulk? No, not that one. And, no, not that one either... Or, in fact, the current Ruffahulk we all know and love.Instead, remember this one? Way back in 2003, Ang Lee took a crack at directing the green rage-monster's first modern day adaptation - and it went...poorly. The movie - which starred Eric Bana as Bruce Banner (see what they did there?) - made money, but received a critical mauling, and very littl ...
