Cate Blanchett To Play Lucille Ball

Cate Blanchett is reportedly attached to star in an Aaron Sorkin-penned, authorized biopic of Hollywood legend Lucille Ball that has been setup at Sony-based Escape Artists.

The story chronicles Ball’s two decade long 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 and she married Gary Morton a year later.

Lucy Arnaz Jr. and Desi Arnaz Jr. will produce but both Blanchett and Sorkin’s reps have yet to comment. Sorkin has had a habit of tackling biopics in recent years such as “The Social Network” and the upcoming “Steve Jobs”.
