At the Movies: Who'll Fill Cleopatra's Strappy Sandals?

Per Variety, Columbia Pictures has acquired screen rights to Cleopatra, a new take on the life of the Egyptian queen based on a forthcoming novel from Pulitzer-winning biographer Stacy Schiff. Cleo was last immortalized on celluloid — and in one of the most expensive films ever — by La Liz, so you just know it's going to be, like, Lindsay Lohan this time around. Because that is how Hollywood works.... Susan Sarandon is joining Tommy Lee Jones and Charlize Theron in In the Valley of Elah, Paul Haggis' tentatively titled follow-up to Crash.
