Angelina Jolie has signed on to play Cleopatra in an upcoming movie about the Queen of the Nile, reports US Weekly. Producer Scott Rudin bought the rights to the book Cleopatra: A Life, with nobody but Jolie in mind. The book is out in November; no word on film plans. The most famous biopic about Cleopatra had Elizabeth Taylor in the starring role in 1963, with real-life lover Richard Burton as Marc Antony. Maybe Brad Pitt can clear his schedule?
