James Cameron's Cleopatra

I hope you weren't holding your breath for Avatar 2 and Avatar 3, because according to Vulture, 20th Century Fox is offering James Cameron a 3D (of course) Cleopatra film, starring none other than Angelina Jolie in the title role. If he accepts, this will be made before the Avatar sequels, meaning we'll have to wait even longer for them (not that I was begging for them; not that you asked for my opinion on that subject anyway).
Here's what I can already tell you about this: it will have a generic, triumph-of-the-hero storyline, with questionable, wooden dialogue, but the spectacle of it all will be so mind-blowing that you'll have no choice but to say you love it and that it's the best movie you've ever seen. Then it will make more money than it has any right to. James Cameron, like George Lucas and his 3D releases of all six Star Wars films, pretty much owns our wallets.
