Sony's been planning this project for 10 years now
  adaptation CLEOPATRA based on Stacy Schiff's bestselling novel. James Cameron was previous director attached to this high profile project. Unlike some other more glamorous projects, this one will focus on the truth about Cleopatra as a leader and not just a sex symbol, since she was a mother, leader and an intellectual who spoke five languages and whose upbringing also reflected her relationship with Rome. Earlier this year I also told you that Black Sails team is working on a Cleopatra series for Amazon but we haven't heard anything about it since.

  1. It's about time that Cleopatra is portrayed as something other than a sex symbol.

    1. if they do it at all :)
      But she really was a sex symbol. She did use her female charms and art of seduction million times more than politics or intellect, both on Caesar and Marc Anthony, but Egypt was that sort of flimsy country back in those days, so I'm guessing they've used all weapons possible to succeed

  2. I am interested to see how Cleopatra plays out. Yes, she was a sex symbol, but like Marilyn Monroe, I am sure there were a lot of brains hidden under all that beauty.
