Move over, Elizabeth Taylor. There’s a new Cleo in town — a new movie based on the Egyptian queen is being developed for Angelina Jolie! Will Brad play her onscreen lover?

Now HERE is a smart casting decision if there’s ever been one! Angelina Jolie is reportedly on board to reprise Elizabeth Taylor’s iconic 1963 role as Egyptian queen Cleopatra!

Oscar-winning producer Scott Rudin (No Country For Old Men) confirmed to USA Today that the Cleo film he’s been working on since 2006 “is being developed for and with Jolie.”

Additionally, while promoting her new book, “Cleopatra: A Life”, Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Stacy Schiff said that Angie, 35, has “the perfect look” to play Cleo, and that her partner Brad Pitt, 44, would be a “no-brainer” to play Cleopatra’s lover, Marc Antony.

Um, YES PLEASE! We already know Angie’s got the queen thing down — she killed it as Queen Olympias in Alexander — and Brad looks DAMN good in battle costume (see Troy immediately). A brilliant casting decision if we’ve ever heard one!

Angie is beautiful.. she can play any part she chooses.. PLUS her fans will support this one.

I will however believe this only when she actually says it is true. Her name is attached to lots of movies she is not doing. This will take at least a year or more for a script. So if it is a go I see her doing it in late 2011 or 2012. She is only really making 1 movie per year.
