Cate Blanchett To Star In Lucille Ball Biopic

Cate Blanchett To Star In Lucille Ball Biopic

If Cate Blanchett doesn’t end up getting Oscar #3 this year for "Carol" or "Truth," she sure has an upcoming project that screams just that. According to The Wrap, Blanchett is attached to star in an Aaron Sorkin-penned biopic of the legendary Lucille Ball, produced by Lucie Arnaz Jr. and Desi Arnaz Jr. themselves. 

Says The Wrap:

The film will chronicle Ball’s 20-year marriage to Desi Arnaz, with whom she starred on the classic TV sitcom “I Love Lucy.” Ball had two children with Arnaz before they divorced in 1960. She married Gary Morton the following year.

No word on who will direct or play Arnaz, but this definitely already high on our 2016 to-see lists (or 2017, depending on how fast things go).
