DENIS VILLENEUVE WANTS TO MAKE A FILM ABOUT CLEOPATRA AND ZENDAYA COULD STAR IN IT
New rumors say that the ‘Euphoria’ actress will play the last queen of Egypt.
enis Villeneuve is part of the most prolific group of directors in Hollywood today, his film works are proof that he has great potential for the seventh art. ‘Dune’ was his last film, a film that won six Oscars including “Best Cinematography” and “Best Visual Effects”; in fact, the second part of this saga is already in development and promises to become another hit in his career.
But ‘Dune: Part Two’ is not the only project that the Canadian wants to bring to the big screen, since for a few years he has spoken to make a film about the life of Cleopatra, a mythical figure from Ancient Egypt.
“Of course, there is the second part of ‘Dune’. But I also have a project for a historical film about the life of Cleopatra. This project is underway and I am very excited. I hope to be able to bring it to the screen before or after filming the second part of Dune,” said the director in an interview a year ago.
It should be remembered that there are already productions inspired by what is considered the last queen of Egypt; the most famous is the one starring Elizabeth Taylor in 1963. But with this new proposal that Villeneuve wants to offer, everything seems to indicate that he will give a 360 degree turn to the story that Joseph L. Mankiewick brought to theaters in the decade of the 60.
And it is that among her favorite candidates to play Cleopatra, Zendaya stands out, who in fact has worked with Villeneuve in ‘Dune’. As revealed on various sites, the ‘Euphoria’ actress could star in the 55-year-old filmmaker’s new film, although nothing has been officially confirmed yet. Images: Classes
