“Cleopatra” returning to cinemas


Well, at least they’ve started looking beyond the 80s to remake films.

Latest recruit for the remake factory is “Cleopatra”, previously made into a [more expensive than three hours with a whore] costly 1963 film with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

According to Variety, Columbia Pictures’ new film will be based on the biography by Stacy Shiff. The book intends to dispel the movie myths that focused on pageantry and Cleopatra’s skills as a seductress. Instead, it will present her as a firm ruler and military tactician who embarked on a ruthless rise to power. Cleopatra twice married brothers, killing each of them as well as a sister. Romantic alliances with the much-older Roman honchos Julius Caesar and Marc Antony helped her solidify power, but her dalliance with Antony undid both of them.

Lindsay Lohan’s agent is already on the phone.
