NBC announced they will produce an "epic romance" about Cleopatra.
This article ask Who should play the Queen?

Sony Pictures is planning to make a movie about Cleopatra with Angelina Jolie in the starring role. The director was at first going to be David Fincher (“Fight Club”), but he dropped out and the studio is negotiating with Ang Lee (“The Hulk”)

There's more about the NBC series. A pilot has been ordered.

Quote:
One of history's most powerful women is likely coming to television next season, with Deadline reporting that NBC has ordered a put pilot for "Cleopatra" from writer-producer Michael Seitzman.

A put pilot order all but guarantees the project will make it to air, as the network would have to pay hefty penalty fees if it was left on the shelf. According to Deadline, the series is being described as "an epic romance set in a world of sorcery, gods and monsters that centers on Cleopatra, Mark Antony and Julius Caesar. The young queen makes a sacred pact with a goddess to win back her throne, igniting a curse and an infamous love triangle that changes the course of history, forever ending the 4,000 year dominion of the Pharaoh."

would be really good if showtime of hbo were the ones producing it. true blood and the tudors are really good, and if done in the same vein, it's a guaranteed success.

I'm not a huge fan of Angelina Jolie's but my husband is, I even went to the print shop for his last birthday to have a full size poster of her printed for his atelier. But judging from her looks, I think she is a good choice to play the part. Nobody can compete with Elizabeth Taylor anyways!

I agree with you! The Tudors still is my favourite TV show. They're paying much attention to all the details in HBO shows, the decor is really realistic, much better as the Borgias for example.
