INCREDIBLY STAR STUDDED 'MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS' TRAILER WITH SUSAN SARANDON, SHARON STONE, CHRISTINA RICCI, COURTNEY COX! ANGELINA JOLIE'S 'CLEOPATRA' EPIC MOVIE STILL ON AT SONY

  'CLEOPATRA' EPIC MOVIE
WITH ANGELINA JOLIE STILL BEING PLANNED OVER AT SONY
Many years ago I reported that Sony is preparing a big screen adaptation of Stacy Schiff's book CLEOPATRA: A LIFE with Angelina Jolie playing the lead role and now 'Deadline' reports that the project isn't dead and that David Scarpa has been brought to rewrite the script. At some point James Cameron was supposed to direct the story which will, unlike some other more glamorous projects, focus on the truth about Cleopatra as a leader and not just a sex symbol, since she was a mother, leader and an intellect who spoke five languages and whose upbringing also reflected her relationship with Rome.

  'MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS' 
SUPER STAR STUDDED TRAILER
Now here's a comedy drama we've never heard of before even though it is extremely, and I mean extremely star studded! MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS should open in cinemas in May 6th! Interwoven stories of what it is to be a mom star Susan Sarandon, Courtney Cox, Christina Ricci, Sharon Stone, Selma Blair, Mira Sorvino, Paul Wesley, Luke Mitchell, Ashanti!

  3. Mothers and Daughters looks like it will be funny, but I bet there's a bit of sadness in their too. Cleopatra should be good.

  5. Angelina as Cleopatra? I really don't know how I feel about that. Maybe it's because I just can't stand her.. lol

  6. I like the idea of telling more of Cleopatra's story. Don't know if Angelina is my favorite for the role, but I think it has the potential to be really good.

    1. if it ever happens, though :) Although I can't imagine how they will cover up her extreme anorexia in the film?

    2. Yes, she is quite thin. I imagine Cleopatra had some lovely curves, so hopefully, they make her eat or pull off some grand special effects to make her look more believable.

    3. they keeps saying she eats just seeds and that it is because she and Brad have problems in their marriage, but I think she doesn't eat because she is afraid of cancer, it totally looks like that kind of phobia.

  7. I wonder how many people will say "she wasn't white" not knowing she wasn't' Egyptian, she was really Greek

    1. but then again Greeks were very dark at that time too, as they are now as well, usually.

  8. Another white Cleopatra. Egyptian or not pretty sure her skin would be at least more tan than Jolie will portray. If it ever gets done I hope the movie good though and I'm glad she will be portrayed as more than a sex symbol.

    1. the movie does need a huge star element on top of it if they are to make a huge tentpole movie and we really don't have famous Egyptian actresses in Hollywood

  9. oooh my...I can't wait to see Angie in Cleopatra..

  10. Cleopatra sounds intriguing because it will be focused on more than being a sex symbol.

    I hadn't heard a peep about the Mothers and Daughters movie. Definitely a different movie- but looks like it is coming out at the perfect time- Mother's Day.

    Thanks for sharing!

  11. "Mothers and Daughters" looks like a three-hanky weeper, as they say.

    1. isn't it weird imagining Sharon Stone as a mother? :) And that is Sarandon's real daughter Eva Amouri playing her daughter in the film. Zero talent, unfortunately.

  12. Mothers and Daughters is something I would see. I don't picture Jolie as Cleopatra, but I've enjoyed her in other movies in which her physicality has been transformed.

    1. given that she now has only 37kg she will hardly be able to transform :)

  13. I hope this Cleopatra flick will be better and shorter than the one they made with Liz Taylor.

    1. yes, that one was a nightmare to watch :)

  14. It would be interesting to see another side of Cleopatra. I can imagine Angelina Jolie being her. Mothers and Daughters lighting and scenes look impeccably styled, though I prefer a focused story on a particular subject with a lot of depth over a star studded cast ensemble with multiple stories.

  15. Cleopatra was a sex symbol? Is that what Adam tells you, Dezz?
