James Cameron has confirmed that he has been in talks to direct a 3-D Cleopatra film, starring Hollywood beauty Angelina Jolie.
"There's a Cleopatra project in works, meaning that it's been in development at Sony. And it's a subject that's always fascinated me," Us magazine quoted Cameron as saying in an interview with the New York Times.
The 56-year-old, however, pointed out that no decisions have been finalized.
"But 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", he added.
Jolie said she "would be honored" to play the part of the Egyptian Queen, though she hadn't "gotten the script yet."
