Angelina Jolie Has A Fine Asp

Angelina Jolie is attached to star in a biopic of “Cleopatra” which Scott Rudin is producing reports USA Today.

The project has been in development since 2006 and will be based on Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Stacy Schiff’s new book, “Cleopatra: A Life”.

Rudin’s office confirms that the project “is being developed for and with Jolie” while this week in New York Schiff suggested Brad Pitt would be “a no-brainer” to play Marc Antony.

The project isn’t to be confused with Steven Soderbergh’s planned musical based on the ancient Egyptian queen that was to star Catherine Zeta-Jones and Hugh Jackman.
