Long ago, it was reported that Angelina Jolie would star as Cleopatra in a remake of the classic Elizabeth Taylor period drama. Now it looks like she may actually have some competition for the role. Lady Gaga is rumored to want the lead, but it’s unclear if the movie is still moving forward at this time.
Cleopatra has been in the planning stages for nearly a decade, with Angelina Jolie long locked into play the lead. It has been a passion project for the Oscar-winning actress. But new rumors are starting to swell that Lady Gaga may want to make Cleopatra her follow up to the award-worthy A Star is Born, which is expected to get a Best Picture nomination at this year’s Oscars, and could even see Lady Gaga going home with a Best Actress award.
