Angelina Jolie has recently confirmed that she may soon take on the role of Egyptian ruler Cleopatra, and that it also may be the last role she will ever play

Cleopatra, who was most famously played by Elizabeth Taylor in a 1963 adaptation  opposite Richard Burton as Mark Antony  might see Maleficent's Angelina Jolie as the ruler of Egypt in a new adaptation. 

"We've been working on it. There have been lots of different ideas of directors and lots of different discussions," Jolie said. "It's one of those that you feel like well, 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?"

The new film has already been linked to several talents  from Eric Roth who wrote Forrest Gump and The Horse Whisperer to Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon director Ang Lee  which the actress was able to clarify in an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live.

Jolie revealed that she "is working on another project" and that "the script has been written by Eric Roth, who is a dear friend and a brilliant writer. But she's complicated. It's complicated to get this one right. But I think we're getting there. It's close, but I imagine the preparation for it is going to be big."
