Blanchett Warms To An “Indian Summer”

Cate Blanchett is set to star in helmer Joe Wright’s “Indian Summer” for Working Title says Variety.

The story is based on the book of the same name by Alex von Tunzelmann, about the last days of Britain’s colonial rule of India in 1947.

Blanchett will star as Lady Edwina Mountbatten. Fellner and Bevan will produce alongside Hilary Bevan Jones.

William Nicholson (“Gladiator”) is penning the screenplay. Lensing is set to begin next year.
