James Cameron is reportedly in talks to direct Angelina Jolie in a Cleopatra biopic.

Deadline reports that the “Avatar” director is in early negotiation with Sony Pictures to direct a new biopic of the Queen of the Nile in 3D. Also, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Amy Pascal has reportedly decided to fast-track its PG-13 and 3D Cleopatra project after screenwriter Bran Helgeland wrote what was is being described as a “brilliant script deserving of epic treatment” all about “what the Romans took from Egypt.” Film producer Scott Rudin bought the rights to Stacy Schiff’s biography “Queen Of The Nile, Cleopatra: A Life,” published last November.

Jolie is on board to star as the Egyptian monarch.
