Angelina Jolie has revealed plans to star in a new Cleopatra movie before potentially retiring from acting.
Speaking to Edith Bowman on BBC Radio 5 Live, Angelina said, “We've been working on it. There's been lots of different ideas of directors and lots of different discussions.
“The script has been written by Eric Roth, who is a dear friend and a brilliant writer."
"She's complicated, it's complicated to get this one right,” Angie continued. “I think we're getting there. It's getting close.
“I imagine the preparation for it is going to be big. It's one of those that you think maybe that's the one you put everything into and that's where you end it, that's where you finish - in a great way. What could you do beyond that one?"
Angelina is currently setting screens on fire in Disney’s Maleficent, which took $70million in the US on its opening weekend, making it her most successful box office debut to date.
Cleopatra was famously depicted by Elizabeth Taylor in the 1963 movie of the same name.
