Cate Blanchett to Star as Lucille Ball

According to Variety Cate Blanchett has been tapped to play Lucille Ball in an upcoming biopic. The project will be produced by Ball’s children Lucie and Desi Arnaz Jr. with Aaron Sorkin in talks to pen the script. The film will cover Ball’s two-decade marriage to Desi Arnaz, which means it will include I Love Lucy and the birth of Desilu.
The good news is with the involvement of Ball’s children this project is an authorized biopic, but, unfortunately, that means whatever the Arnaz’s do not want out in the public will not get out. So, it will probably not be total warts and all type of biopic.
With talent like Blanchett and apparently Sorkin attached to the project, how is this not a project worth anticipating.
