Jolie confirms 'Cleopatra' involvement

Angelina Jolie has confirmed she is involved with 'Cleopatra'.

The Hollywood beauty had been rumoured to have signed up to play the role of the famed Egyptian queen, and admits she is just waiting for the script to be completed.

She revealed: "I think if we can get the story right and... a lot about her has not been covered. If we can do something original we will. But no director yet."

The 35-year-old also claims she has "talked" about appearing in Darren Aronofsky's 'Serena', an adaptation of the novel by Ron Rash.

She told MTV News: "We've talked about it and I'd love to work with Darren one day. So if it's not that it will be something else. He's one of my favourites."

Meanwhile, the Oscar-winning actress admits she would not like to star in a sequel to 'Wanted' because her character Fox died in the first film.

She told ComingSoon: "Being dead makes it difficult. They were trying to bring me back but I kind of feel like if I die in a movie, I should die actually."

Angelina can next been seen in spy thriller 'Salt', due for release worldwide throughout July and August.
