Producer Scott Rudin Always Figured Fox Would Lock In James Cameron For 'Avatar' SequelsEarly last fall, talk began heating up around a potential, mega-blockbuster "Cleopatra" with preliminary word putting James Cameron in the director's chair and Angelina Jolie in the titular role (she has long been eyed for it). Of course, as we all know, while Cameron thought the idea of directing Jolie would be "hot," he's since signed on for "Avatar 2" and "Avatar 3." But to hear it from producer Scott Rudin, he always sort of figured that might happen. Speaking to Deadline about "Cleopatra" he says, "I’ve been a good friend of Jim Cameron’s since I was the executive on 'Aliens.' I got promoted because of my relationship with Jim Cameron and the guy’s been a seminal figure in my career. I never for one second thought we were being leveraged. I fully expected Fox to make the play they did, to make sure he didn’t do Cleopatra. I wasn’t surprised when they did." But it looks like another very exciting name is circling the project.
