Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie feels it would be an honoured to play Egyptian queen Cleoptra in a new biopic.
"I would be honoured to play Cleopatra. But, we haven't gotten the script yet," Jolie said.
Last month, book publisher Little, Brown confirmed that the 35-year-old actress is set to portray Cleoptra in a film adaptation of upcoming historical biography Queen of the Nile, Cleopatra: A Life, the Us magazine reported.
"Angelina Jolie radiates grace and power, exactly the qualities that [author] Stacy Schiff finds in her biography of the most intriguing ruler who ever lived," Little, Brown publisher Michael Pietsch said.It was also being suggested that Jolie might portray veteran actress Elizabeth Taylor, who played Cleopatra role in a 1963 movie, in another future biopic.
"I have never heard that before. I don't think that anybody could be Elizabeth Taylor better than Elizabeth Taylor," Jolie said.
