After Ang Lee’s Life of Pi will most definitely make it to the Oscar nomination as Best Picture, it comes with no wonder that we are already hearing about his, probable, next new project.
After David Fincher, James Cameron and Paul Greengrass have all considered but then departed, directing producer Scott Rudin’s Cleopatra Lee seems to be positively interested.
Lee tells The Hollywood Reporter that “I’m about to read the script,” and, “It just feels right.” Lee continues about his latest projects, “What does it have in common with any of them? They’re all totally different! That’s what makes this perfect.”
It is true that Lee’s filmography is hugely varied, and after the great risk he took when taking on LIfe of Pi, it did turn out a huge success. Angelina Jolie is still attached to Cleopatra and if Lee accepts, the movie will start moving!
