Jackman, Zeta-Jones In Cleopatra 3D

Hard to believe but it’s true – “Traffic” and “Ocean’s Eleven” director Steven Soderbergh is developing a $30 million 3-D live-action rock ‘n’ roll musical about Cleopatra reports Variety.

Soderbergh is courting Catherine Zeta-Jones to play the Egyptian queen and Hugh Jackman to play her lover Marc Antony in “Cleo” which will be shopped around for financing and distribution within the next two weeks.

Indie rock band Guided by Voices will do the music and their former bass player turned author James Greer will pen the script.
