Another 'Cleopatra' Film On Tap

If there's one thing that history teaches us, it's that those who are unaware of history are doomed to repeat it. Hitler learned nothing from Napoleon's invasion of Russia in the winter, and chose the same path. Well, just like Hitler, Columbia Pictures are perhaps doomed to repeat one of the greatest failures in the history of American cinema, Cleopatra.

Yes, the genii that run the studio are planning an epic treatment of the life of Ms. Patra, though track records on historical epics and films about the life of Cleopatra are among the most losing propositions in artistic history.

In case you don't know, 1963's Cleopatra, starring Elizabeth Taylor, is, according to inflation adjustments, one of the biggest losers of money ever. And that had frickin' Elizabeth Taylor in it. Who are they gonna get now? Renee Zellweger? Angelina Jolie?

No offense, but there's not a woman on Earth who currently carries the star power that Taylor did when she made the original movie. Unless you want to cast Paris Hilton, or Britney Spears' cooch. No matter, because people hate historical epics, too, especially ones that don't take place in the USA. Alexander anyone? Troy?

This is a bad idea all around.
