Fresh off his Oscar win as Best Director for "Life of Pi," Ang Lee is fielding a number of potential and solidified upcoming projects. News comes today that the Taiwanese-born director is being eyed to helm Warner Bros.' Moses biopic "Gods and Kings," now that Steven Spielberg has dropped out. Lee is reportedly "intrigued" by the possibility of taking on the project. It is co-penned by Stuart Hazeldine and Michael Green, and follows Moses from infancy through the Ten Commandments.  Lee is also circling "Cleopatra," a film that David Fincher was previously attached to--Lee was looking forward to examining Eric Roth's script based on Stacy Schiff's authentic best-selling biography at awards time--which has Angelina Jolie set to star in the eponymous role.  Meanwhile, Lee is set to direct the pilot of "Tyrant," a new series for FX, centering on an American family drawn into the crosshairs of Middle Eastern political unrest. »
