Demigod Cate Blanchett just signed on to star as Lucille Ball in the upcoming biopic Lucy and Desi, and we're so thrilled we may just go stomp around in a barrel of grapes to celebrate.
Blanchett (Carol) will portray the beloved redheaded comedienne in a movie produced by Ball and her ex-husband Desi Arnaz’s children. Amazon scooped up the rights to the project and tasked Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) with penning the script.
Lucy and Desi will focus on the life of the iconic actress, her rise to fame and her 20-year marriage to Arnaz, diving into the couple’s tumultuous relationship in both their business (they shared a massively successful production company) and marriage.
No word yet on when we can expect the film in theaters, but we can't wait to see Blanchett in yet another epic role.
