FAC­ING OFF!

OK! (USA) - - This Week -

For years, An­gelina Jolie has been in talks to star in the mega-bud­get biopic Cleopa­tra, but it seems as if she’s sud­denly fac­ing some stiff com­pe­ti­tion! “Angie has wanted to work on the film for a very long time, but it looks like she’s go­ing to have to go up against Lady Gaga for the lead,” says an in­dus­try in­sider, not­ing that Gaga’s in a great place right now fol­low­ing the suc­cess of A Star Is Born. “This role has got her at­ten­tion — and she wants it more than any­thing!” While the in­sider pre­dicts that Gaga’s got a bet­ter chance of nab­bing the part — es­pe­cially given the buzz that she could take home an Os­car this year — Angie won’t be step­ping down with­out a fight. Adds the in­sider: “Both ladies are pre­pared to try to outdo each other by any means pos­si­ble.” May the best woman win!

“Gaga feels like she’s at the per­fect point in her ca­reer to tackle a role like this,” says an in­dus­try in­sider.
