Cate Blanchett Set To Star In Lucille Ball Biopic For Amazon

The film was picked up by Amazon Studios, E!

Academy Award victor (and upcoming bad-ass MCU villain) Cate Blanchett will portray the titular Lucille Ball. I don't know who the flawless screenwriter for a project like this would be, but it strikes me that Sorkin probably isn't that person. In an unprecedented move, Ball insisted CBS hire her real-life husband, Arnaz, to costar alongside her. Yet what is known for sure is that the children of Ball and Desi Arnaz - Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. - have signed off on the project and are co-producing it alongside Escape Artists' Jenna Block. The drama will look at the marriage of Ball and Arnaz and their business relationship set around their company Desilu.

There have been previous attempts to bring this Hollywood love story to the screen, including 1991's Lucy & Desi: Before the Laughter, with Francis Fisher and Maurice Bernard in the title roles.

Though Lucille initially filed for divorce in 1944, she finally went through with the legal separation in 1960, married again and died in 1989. Blanchett has won Oscars for The Aviator and Blue Jasmine.

Just to give the project a silver lining, the script has been written by Aaron Sorkin, the very notable author of the Broadway play A Few Good Men and the television series The West Wing. The Australian actress might not be known for her comedic roles, but as Ball said herself: "I'm not amusing".

The rest of the cast has not been announced, but Deadline reports another Oscar victor - "Skyfall" actor Javier Bardem - is rumored for the role of Arnaz.
