"For Cleopatra, we've been working on it," the 38-year-old Maleficent star explained to BBC radio of where the film project stands. "There's been lots of different ideas of directors and a lot of different discussions. The script has been written by Eric Roth, who is a dear friend and a brilliant writer."
As for the coveted lead role of the famed Egyptian pharaoh, Jolie added, "She's complicated, it's complicated to get this one right. She's complicated. But I think we're getting there. It's very close. So if we can pull it off...I imagine that the preparation for it is going to be big."
