Ang Lee expresses desire to direct Angelina Jolie in 'Cleopatra'
And good luck to him with that
I would vote for either Ang Lee or James Cameron. I think they both have the necessary vision to make a visually and thought provoking film, with that said, I should also mention I loved Cleopatra with Elizabeth Taylor. Maybe not a movie on the same level with, lets say the Piano but for that era I thought it was beautiful and entertaining. Isn't that what movies are supposed to be. I don't always want to see a Shindlers List or a Lincoln. I also liked the movie John Carter, just because I like Edgar Rice Burroughs, it could have been done better, but I enjoyed the story. If you could imagine the new Cleopatra along the lines of a Avatar and Life of Pi, i think it would be fantastic. imho
