Variety says Cleopatra will reunite Fincher with his Social Network producer Scott Rudin and his Curious Case of Benjamin Button screenwriter Eric Roth, who is poised to succeed Brian Helgeland in adapting Stacy Schiff's book Cleopatra: A Life. Should he close a deal, Roth is expected to start scripting within the next few weeks.
The trade adds it's now uncertain whether Cleopatra will be shot in 3D, which at one point was going to be the case.
