Life Of Pi director Ang Lee is in talks to take over Angelina Jolie’s planned Cleopatra epic.
The filmmaker has become the latest big name considered for the task after David Fincher and James Cameron allegedly walked away from the ambitious project.
He tells The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m about to read the script,” and adds, “It just feels right.”
Lee is expected to land a Best Director Oscar nomination when the shortlist is announced on Thursday.
