Studio Sony Pictures revives the project called "Cleopatra", which has sunk into oblivion, dedicated to the famous Egyptian queen and her influence on world history. According to Deadline, the movie has a new scriptwriter David Scarpa.
Does this mean that viewers will be able to see the picture in which Angelina Jolie intended to play the main role, in the near future is still unknown. The studio has not announced a possible movieing or distribution schedule for the movie.
Recall that the studio has been trying to start implementing this project since 2009. Over the years, its possible directors included David Fincher, Paul Greengrass and even James Cameron. But all of them eventually gave up directorial posts, as the preparatory period was too long. The painting should be based on Stacy Skiff's The Life of Cleopatra.
Whether Angelina Jolie is still interested in this role is still unknown. We will remind that earlier the news of her participation in the project agitated the Negro organizations in the United States, which were outraged that the Egyptian queen was going to play a white actress. The image of Cleopatra has been exploited by Hollywood many times. In 1934 she was played by Claudette Colbert, in 1945 by Vivien Leigh, and in 1963 by Elizabeth Taylor.
