Angelina Jolieis next in line to play the iconic Egyptian goddess Cleopatra. In the 3D adaption of the ancient history story, Angelina will take to the throne as the stunning ruler, if James Cameron can help it.

"There's a Cleopatra project in the works, meaning that it's been in development at Sony. And it's a subject that's always fascinated me,” said James who is set to start production on the film.

"It sounds hot, doesn't it? I mean, Angelina Jolie and Cleopatra? To me, that's like a slam dunk. Whether I wind up doing it or not, I think it's going to be a great project."

Angelina replied that she “would be honoured” to play the role.
