Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures have mapped out a plan for its star-studded Ocean’s Eleven spinoff. The studio has announced a 2018 release date for Ocean’s 8, which stars Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter. Gary Ross is directing.

THR reports Ocean’s 8 will arrive at the height of the summer movie season on June 8, 2018. It’ll open directly against Paramount’s Transformers 6, and should serve as a nice bit of counter-programming for audiences tired of watching giant CG robots go at it with each other. Also opening around that time are Disney’s Han Solo spinoff (May 25), Pixar’s Toy Story 4, and Universal’s Jurassic World sequel.

Bullock leads Ocean’s 8 as the sister of Danny Ocean, George Clooney’s character from Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s movies. Like her brother, she’s a charismatic thief. She organizes a heist to take place at the Met Gala, and recruits a colorful team to help her pull it off. Blanchett plays her right-hand woman (basically, the Brad Pitt to Bullock’s George Clooney). Soderbergh is producing.

Speaking to /Film’s Jack Giroux this summer, Ross explained how Ocean’s 8 would be like the Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven films. “I think it’s a pretty similar tone,” he said. “This is very much an extension and a continuation.” He went on to praise the “amazing tone” of the earlier films, and talked up his collaboration with Soderbergh on the project. “We discuss the cinema a lot, the shooting style, the rhythm, the editing style, and the music. We discuss it all,” he said. “I’m in no way trying to reinvent the tone, and I’m thrilled and honored to be extending it. It’s really fun to work with.”

Ross is directing Ocean’s 8 from a script he wrote with Olivia Milch. Susan Ekins will executive produce. The project has been in development for years, but hit a speed bump when producer Jerry Weintraub passed away last year. The project finally got back on track last year when Ross signed on. Shooting begins this month in New York. [Source]

Back in December, it was reported that Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett was in talks with Marvel Studios to star in the upcoming action-fantasy movie “Thor: Ragnarok,” playing one of the lead female roles.

Now, director Taika Waititi has finally confirmed that Cate is indeed joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In a recent interview with Wired, Waititi has confirmed that Cate will star in the next Thor movie, although he did not discuss details about what role the actress will be playing.

“Yeah, the rumor … Here’s the thing. I can’t say anything. I’ve probably said way too much,” Waititi said about Cate playing villain Hela, reported Fashion N Style.

The director assured fans that whatever role Cate Blanchett will be playing in the movie “Thor: Ragnarok,” it’s surely going to be great.

“Yes. Look, it’s so early I’m not sure exactly what the extent of it is, but it’s looking good, which would make me very happy,” he said. “At the moment, everyone’s trying to figure it out, like ‘What’s he going to do?'” Waititi said, talking about the return of fan favorite character Loki in the film. “Everyone loves that character.”

Even Mark Ruffalo, who will play Hulk in the movie, had earlier hinted Cate Blanchett’s involvement in “Thor: Ragnarok.”

“I’m so thrilled,” Ruffalo told Entertainment Weekly after they asked about Blanchett’s involvement in the Thor movie. “I saw her at the Governors’ banquet here and heard that maybe she was circling, they were talking to her about the part, so I ran up to her and I was like, ‘Please, please, please make this work!’ She’s just one of the best, and to have her play a baddie is going to be really exciting.”

“Thor: Ragnarok” is scheduled to hit theaters on Nov. 3, 2017. [Source]

Cate Blanchett will receive the Lacoste Spotlight Award at the 18th Costume Designers Guild Awards on Feb. 23 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The guild said the award honors an actor whose talent and career personify an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design.

“Blanchett is being honored for her unparalleled talent as much as for her status within the costume design community,” the guild said. “Her appreciation for the artistry of costume design and her collaboration with the Costume Designers has made her an icon both on and off the screen.”

Blanchett won an Academy Award for best actress for “Blue Jasmine” and for best supporting actress for “The Aviator.” She was nominated for four other Oscars for “Elizabeth,” “Elizabeth: The Golden Age,” “Notes on a Scandal” and “I’m Not There.” Her credits include “Cinderella,” “Veroica Guerin,” “Bandits,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” “The Lord of the Rings Trilogy” and “The Hobbit Trilogy.”

She stars alongside Rooney Mara in “Carol,” directed by Todd Haynes, and has been nominated for a Golden Globes best actress award. She starred as Mary Mapes in “Truth” opposite Robert Redford and will appear soon in Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups.” [Source]

The actress will receive Australia’s highest screen award.

Cate Blanchett will be awarded the ACCTA Longford Lyell Award, Australia’s highest screen award, on Wednesday evening in Sydney. The award has been presented since 1968, honouring an individual who has made a “truly outstanding contribution to the enrichment of Australia’s screen environment and culture.” As one of Australia’s most successful film exports, it’s hard to deny the two-time Oscar-winner fits the bill.

“When I look at the outstanding men and women who have received this prestigious award before me, I am truly honoured to be considered among venerable practitioners and performers; creative spirits who have had a strong and lasting influence, not only on my work, but on what I thought creatively possible in this country,” Blanchett said of the honour via press release.

Currently, Blanchett stars on the December 2015 issue of Vogue Australia, which celebrates the end of her and husband Andrew Upton’s tenure at the Sydney Theatre Company in anticipation of their permanent move overseas. [Source]

The Weinstein Company has made it official, as if there was really any doubt who is a lead and who is supporting in its November 20 release, and Oscar hopeful, Carol. No sooner had my flight back from the Toronto Film Festival landed at LAX than I received a call from TWC clarifying that it definitely will be campaigning Cate Blanchett for Lead Actress and Rooney Mara for Supporting. Ever since the TIFF debut to rave reviews and strong audience reaction on Saturday night of Blanchett’s other 2015 contender, Truth, there has been speculation that to avoid canceling herself out, the Weinstein Company and Sony Pictures Classics (which is releasing Truth on October 16) might try to avoid a Solomon’s or Sophie’s Choice here and shoehorn one or the other performance from Blanchett into supporting.

It’s certainly been done before, as I pointed out in a Sunday column addressing this very issue. In fact, in order to avoid that kind of situation, TWC campaigned another Kate, as in Winslet, for Supporting Actress for The Reader in 2008, so as not to Truthcollide with her other big role in Paramount’s Revolutionary Road that same year. But as it turns out, it is not wise to tell the Academy performers branch what is a leading role vs. supporting. They don’t always fall in line like lemmings. Winslet, despite that supporting campaign, was nominated for Lead Actress instead for The Reader and eventually won. There was no nomination for Revolutionary Road. And though groups like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association determine which performance goes into lead or support, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences leaves that decision solely to each voting actor.

Cate Blanchett is lots of things we’d like to be: elegant, witty and the owner of a truly remarkable pair of cheekbones. As the face of Armani’s alluring, feminine ‘Si’ scent, she’s wowed us time and time again in chic campaign visuals, so we were pretty excited to get a sneaky peek behind the scenes at how the magic happens.

Armani have shared with us a video, showing us Cate getting ready, being photographed and having plenty of giggles with her co-star. Looks like a fun day at work…

Armani Si is £44 for 30ml and available from September 1st. [Source]

Cate Blanchett’s latest film Carol, which got a standing ovation at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, will have its Australian premiere as part of this year’s Adelaide Film Festival.

Directed by Todd Haynes and set in Manhattan in the 1950s, it tells of the relationship of wealthy and married socialite Carol (played by Blanchett) and department store assistant Therese Belivet (played by Rooney Mara).

“I think the studios have a kind of repeated amnesia about the fact that people actually want to see films about women and they can be profitable,” Haynes told 891 ABC Adelaide.

Some critics are talking of Oscar hopes based on Blanchett’s role.

“It’s just an incredible performance from Cate. I was there is Cannes to see the world premiere and I am just so delighted that we can bring it here to Adelaide,” festival director Amanda Duthie said.

“We have 10 Australian premieres, including the completely magnificent Carol starring Cate Blanchett, in our feature competition and a whole range also in the documentary competition.”

More than 180 films will screen during the Adelaide Film Festival from October 15 to 25. [Source]
