Cate Blanchett to Star in Sorkin-Penned Lucille Ball Biopic

Lucille Ball Biopic

The Wrap is reporting that Cate Blanchett is cast in Aaron Sorkin‘s new biopic about the iconic comedian Lucille Ball.

The authorized biopic is being produced by Ball’s two children — Lucy Arnaz Jr. and Desi Arnaz Jr. – and Sony-based Escape Artists.

The film will chronicle the 20-year marriage between Lucy Ball and Desi Arnaz, whom she had two aforementioned children with before they divorced in 1960.

Sorkin, who had a habit of tackling biopics in recent years, did write females pretty badly and I’m not too sure about his involvement. Never mind, Cate “Swiss Army Knife” Blanchett will absolutely kill this role as well as she’s previously breathed life into famed performer Katharine Hepburn in Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator. She can even play Batman and win an Oscar for it. Just hire a Latino to play Desi.
