Angelina Jolie would be “honored” to play ‘Cleopatra’ in film adaptation of ‘Cleopatra: A Life’
HollywoodNews.com: Angelina Jolie has revealed that she likes the idea of starring as ‘Cleopatra’ in a new film.
In reference to the role, the 35-year-old told reporters at the ‘Salt’ premiere in Hollywood: “I would be honored.” But Jolie added that she hasn’t gotten the script yet.
It was recently confirmed by book publisher Little, Brown that the actress was discussing the possibility of starring in the film adaptation of the historical biography, ‘Cleopatra: A Life.’ Little, Brown publisher Michael Pietsch told UsMagazine.com: “Angelina Jolie radiates grace and power, exactly the qualities that [author] Stacy Schiff finds in her biography of the most intriguing ruler who ever lived.”
But Angelina does deny rumours that she could be playing Elizabeth Taylor, who starred as ‘Cleopatra’ in 1963, in a future biopic. She said: “I have never heard that before. “I don’t think that anybody could be Elizabeth Taylor better than Elizabeth Taylor.”
