Gal Gadot to star in Cleopatra for Paramount

I remember they were looking at Angelina Jolie for this but it's Gadot now.

According to the Deadline article referenced, the rumoured Jolie or Lady Gaga casting was for a long developing separate Sony film allowing for the possibility of duelling big budget Cleo projects
IMO Camilla Belle or Lily Collins are a couple of striking brunettes but probably not high profile enough for Sony

It mentions a "wild" auction between Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros, Netflix and Apple. I'd be curious how much the bids for this were, this will not be a cheap movie to make.

I'm not a fan of GG. Hopefully she proves me wrong on this one.

Yup, there is an expectation of lavish spectacle in this because of the 1963 film but they can CGI the large crowds and expensive looking sets. Still it will be very difficult to make this well for under $100 mill imo.
Wonder if they're gonna go full WW and cast Chris Pine as Mark Anthony.
