We know that Angelina Jolie is playing Cleopatra -- if they get the story right. We know that she'd love to join Tim Burton's Maleficent, and play one of Disney's most iconic animated villains. She'd also love to work with Darren Aronofsky, perhaps on Serena, or something else. And to top it off, a Kay Scarpetta film is still in development.

In other words, she's got cinematic opportunities up the wazoo -- good roles with a number of leading directors. But now the rumor mill is adding another project to her ever-growing pile, one that will have her playing one of the biggest names in Hollywood's yesteryear, number seven on AFI's list of Female Legends: Elizabeth Taylor.
