Angelina Jolie will Play Cleopatra VII

Sony Studios has a new rendition of Cleopatra is currently in production, with Angelina Jolie slated to play the historic queen. Currently not much is known about this upcoming movie.

This movie is based on Stacy Schiff's novel Cleopatra: a Life, with Brian Helgeland and David Scarpa writing the screenplay.

Denis Villeneuve will direct the film, and Scott Rudin will produce.

This movie began as a passion project for Angelina Jolie and was originally slated to be delivered in 2013. However, after multiple setbacks, the movie is now back on track.

What Kind of Movie will the New Cleopatra Be?

This movie will take a unique perspective compared to previous versions. It will be in a political thriller instead of an epic romantic film, and will focus on how Cleopatra was an educated powerful and tactical woman, and not focus on rumors of promiscuity.

The story will focus on the rising political power of Cleopatra VII and will have a feel closer to Games of Thrones than the original romantic fairy tale that has been the style in past productions. This movie is supposed to be bloody, and dirty, and dramatic.
