Cate Blanchett hopes her forthcoming all-female heist movie Ocean’s 8 will open the floodgates for more films with women taking all the starring roles.

The Oscar-winning actress will appear alongside Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter in the spin-off of the Ocean’s Eleven film series, due in cinemas in June.

She said: “Making Ocean’s 8 was too much fun! I hope and trust it will be as much fun to watch as it was to make.

“It’s funny because you don’t worry about what you’re missing until you experience it. Something that all of us were saying is that an all-female starring cast is so rare.

“You get maybe one, two or three of you — but to get eight of you that have all got really interesting roles that are all playing off one another is very rare.

“It’s happened to me in the theatre a little bit but it’s never happened to me before in film. So it’s hopefully to be oft repeated.”

Blanchett, 48, was speaking exclusively to the Standard as she attended the launch of the new Giorgio Armani and Armani/Casa boutique in Sloane Street.

Cate Blanchett, Joel Edgerton and Chris Hemsworth are among more than 200 Australian actors, directors, screenwriters, producers and other film and TV talent who have signed an open letter to the Oz government on behalf of the #MakeItAustralian campaign. In the face of “a deluge of overseas content,” the movement calls on federal parliamentarians to protect the local biz by committing to a diversity of quality Australian content for Australian and international audiences.

The campaign is asking elected officials to evolve rules so that new players like Netflix and YouTube have obligations to create original local programs. This comes as, the group says, major supporters of Australian stories such as Screen Australia and the ABC have seen funding cut over the years.

“Our ability to keep telling Australian stories on screen is at risk, our voices in danger of being drowned out by a deluge of overseas content,” the group writes. “And if our nation’s stories aren’t told, they die. And when they die, future generations won’t know who we are and what makes us us.”

The group also points to tax incentives that encourage production in Australia, saying they need to be competitive. This has long been a source of contention. The so-called production offset has been stuck at 16.5% and the industry has lobbied the government ahead of this year’s budget (due to be announced in May) to raise it to 30% to attract overseas filmmakers. The offset has occasionally been increased on a one-off basis for a major U.S. production. Most recently, Queensland agreed to top it up for Paramount’s live-action Dora The Explorer movie.

Big films to shoot Down Under in recent years include Alien: Covenant, Kong: Skull Island, Thor: Ragnarok, and Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

After recent visit to Bangladesh, Blanchett says more international support for displaced and host communities is urgently needed ahead of monsoon rains.

UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Cate Blanchett today warned of a “race against time” to protect Rohingya refugees from the worst impacts of the upcoming monsoon season in Bangladesh.

Blanchett was visiting south-eastern Bangladesh where over 671,000 children, women and men from Myanmar have sought safety since last August.

With wet season rains due next month, more than 150,000 refugees are at risk of landslides and floods, in what could become a disaster on top of the current emergency.

“The Rohingya refugees have already experienced targeted violence, human rights abuses and horrific journeys. They have shown unimaginable resilience and courage,” Blanchett said, speaking at the end of her visit to Kutupalong, Nyapara and Chakmarkul settlements this week.

“But now, as the monsoon season approaches, the Government of Bangladesh, supported by UNHCR and its partners, are in a race against time to ensure the refugees are as safe as they can be to deal with potential floods and landslides.”

In Chakmarkul settlement Blanchett met with 28-year-old Jhura who fled Myanmar with her two children when her village was attacked six months ago. She now lives in a bamboo shelter built on the side of a steep hill.

“The monsoon is coming and I’m scared that the wind will blow away the roof. There are shelters above mine that would fall on us if there is a landslide. The ground will be slippery and I worry that it will be difficult to get about,” says Jhura, who became separated from her husband, whom she fears may have been killed.

Baz Bamigboye of The Daily Mail has reported that Academy Award winning actor, Cate Blanchett, has departed an upcoming stage adaptation of the classic film All About Eve.

According to Baz, Blanchett was forced to drop the project due to a scheduling conflict. Star Gillian Anderson is currently in talks to join the cast in the iconic role of Margot Channing.

The adaptation, which will be directed by Tony Award winner, Ivo van Hove is expected to arrive on the West End in early 2019. The play will be produced by Sonia Friedman Productions and Fox Stage Productions.

The 1950 film, All About Eve, is written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, based on the short story “The Wisdom of Eve,” by Mary Orr, and stars Bette Davis as Margo Channing, the prominent yet aging Broadway star. Anne Baxter plays Eve Harrington, a willingly helpful young fan who insinuates herself into Channing’s life, threatening Channing’s career and personal relationships. All About Eve was nominated for 14 Academy Awardsâ and won 6, including Best Picture.

Ivo Van Hove won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Direction of a Play for ARTHUR MILLER’S A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE. As General Director of Holland’s leading theatre company Toneelgroep Amsterdam, Ivo Van Hove has staged many internationally acclaimed productions, including, in New York: Alice in Bed, More Stately Mansions (Obie Award), A Streetcar Named Desire, Hedda Gabler(Obie), The Misanthrope, The Little Foxes, and Scenes From a Marriage, all at the New York Theatre Workshop; Roman Tragedies, Cries and Whispers, Opening Night, Angels in America, and Antigone at BAM; and Teorema at the Lincoln Center Festival.

On a whirlwind stopover in Sydney to promote the newest Giorgio Armani fragrance, Sì Passione, Vogue sat down with homegrown, Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett to talk through her most cherished fragrance memories, her best jet-lag cure, and getting facials with Sandra Bullock.

You’ve been working with fragrance for a long time now, how is it linked to confidence for you?
“You can be away from somewhere but as soon as you smell it, whether it’s in France and it’s the lavender or in Australia, for me it’s the smell of bush fires, eucalyptus and fried meat, whatever it is, but it transports you back. It’s the wonderful thing you get so bound up in what we’re doing at the time that fragrance is a real gateway to your aspirations and your dreams and the more poetic part of your day.

So how does Sì Passione differ from the other Sì scents?
“They’ve all got the blackcurrant and the oud which I really do love. But I think it’s the pepper and the pear which is so different.”

Do you ever use fragrance to transport yourself into a role?
“I’m a bowerbird, whatever it takes to unlock a door. You don’t know what it’s going to be, whether it’s an image sometimes, or it’s a piece of music sometimes, or it’s a single word on the page, or an anecdote that someone will say to you, and sometimes it’s a fragrance.”

To mark the day when the whole world is celebrating women’s achievements and pressing for further progress in gender parity globally, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Cate Blanchett met with the UN’s Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees Kelly Clements to discuss her role as one of the world’s most high profile advocates for refugees.

Both Blanchett and Clements shared personal stories of meeting female refugees and the inspiration they have taken from women who have been forced to leave everything behind in search of safety as well as those who make great personal sacrifices to help them.

These personal accounts come at a time when more women are fleeing danger than ever in recorded history and often face the greatest risks of violence, exploitation and denial of their basic rights. The situation is particularly pressing for girls’ education where girls are only half as likely to enrol in secondary school as their male peers, even though they make up half of the school-age refugee population.

The Deputy High Commissioner was also asked for her advice to young women seeking to follow a similar career path to her and urged them to be hungry and seize all opportunities given to them, particularly working directly with refugees in the field.

The film is the first in a series featuring UNHCR Ambassadors and supporters to show the female face of the refugee crisis and will be followed by others directly from refugee communities. Both women ended the video by calling on everyone watching to support UNHCRs #WithRefugees campaign for International Women’s Day. [Source]

Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Cate Blanchett and Eileen Atkins are among more than 100 actors, writers and TV personalities announced as ambassadors of the Old Vic as it prepares to mark its 200th anniversary.

They join Imelda Staunton, Ian McKellen, Maxine Peake, Damian Lewis, Derek Jacobi, Janie Dee and Simon Russell Beale as Bicentenary Ambassadors, who will be involved in a variety of initiatives to mark the theatre’s anniversary. These include curating monologues, attending events around the anniversary in May and raising awareness of its education work.

Peake will curate a series of monologues called One Hand Tied Behind Us, to mark International Women’s Day, while Helen McCrory will hold a workshop for aspiring actors. Bertie Carvel will run this year’s London Marathon to raise money for the theatre.

Artistic director Matthew Warchus said he was determined that the anniversary would not be about “eulogising a historic artefact”.

“For me, it’s essential to recognise that the illustrious history of this building is also characterised by mischief, populism, sometimes breath-taking boldness and risk. Above all, it’s been a place full of youthful vitality and an urge to reinvent itself to stay relevant and always engaged with the world around it,” he added. [Source]

‘I remember the very first time I came to Milan,’ says Cate Blanchett, ‘I was 18 and backpacking round Europe. I walked into the Duomo and just burst into tears. Shafts of light were coming through the clouds of incense, and the smell of frankincense was so powerful.

‘I think my response was heightened because I was on such a big adventure – I’d never travelled on my own outside Australia. And that first trip was marked by the smell of Italian churches.’

Three decades have passed, but the room in which we meet is scented with that same heady note. We’re in a suite at the Armani Hotel – an oasis of quiet on the bustling Via Alessandro Manzoni.

‘Whenever I check into one of Mr Armani’s hotels, it hits me as soon as I walk off the street – that intense oud.’

It’s a signature of Sì, the scent that Cate has fronted since the fragrance was launched in 2013.

‘Look at all those bottles,’ she laughs, gesturing to a neat line of stoppered vials, from an eau de toilette to three different eau de parfums and the new limited-edition Sì Nacre.

‘That’s how long I’ve been working on this! Scent speaks to your emotions, your aspirations and your dreams, and if you inhale one that makes you feel good about yourself, or sexy, or whatever it is you want to feel, then you’ll project that from the inside out.’

For Cate, that scent is Sì Intense, her favourite in the range. There is always a bottle in her handbag and she is liberal when it comes to spritzing – so much so that the scent is now almost part of her.

‘One day, I thought I had a rat in my wardrobe. I kept hearing this…’ She makes a scrabbling noise with her fingers against the sofa beneath her.

‘But I opened it and Iggy [her nine-year-old son, Ignatius] was in there, the funny little thing!’ She laughs.

Cate Blanchett is in negotiations to join Jack Black in The House With a Clock in Its Walls for Amblin Entertainment.

Eli Roth is directing the adaptation of the 1973 gothic horror novel, written by John Bellairs with illustrations by Edward Gorey, which tells of a recently orphaned boy who moves in with his uncle. The uncle turns out to be a mediocre witch and the boy soon finds himself in a world of magic and danger, especially when he discovers a clock inside the walls of his house that is designed to bring about doomsday.

Black will portray the uncle.

If a deal is made, Blanchett will play Mrs. Zimmerman, the uncle’s neighbor and best friend, and more importantly, a fellow witch.

Brad Fischer, James Vanderbilt and Eric Kripke are producing.

The two-time Oscar winner will next be seen playing the villainess Hela in Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok. Blanchett is repped by CAA. [Source]

Amazon Studios has acquired the Lucille Ball biopic “Lucy and Desi,” with Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett attached to star.

Aaron Sorkin has written the script. Escape Artists is the production company with Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch producing.

The producers are seeking a star to play Ball’s husband Desi Arnaz as well as Vivian Vance and William Frawley, who played Fred and Ethel Mertz in the landmark sitcom “I Love Lucy.”

The project attracted Blanchett and Sorkin two years ago. “Lucy and Desi” will center on Ball’s 20-year marriage to Desi Arnaz. She eloped with the Cuban bandleader in 1940, and the two created the massively successful sitcom “I Love Lucy” in 1951 through their Desilu Productions. She won four Emmys for the role.

Ball also gave birth to her daughter in 1951 and to her son in 1953. Ball and Arnaz divorced in 1960, and Ball began running Desilu Productions in 1962. She died in 1989.

Blanchett has won Academy Awards for “The Aviator” and “Blue Jasmine.”

The “Lucy and Desi” project also involves the two children from the marriage — Lucie Luckinbill and Desi Arnaz Jr. — and includes rights to the use of memoirs written by both Ball and Arnaz. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood. [Source]

Hollywood superstar Cate Blanchett is set to make her Broadway debut. NY1 theater correspondent Frank DiLella filed the following preview.

Two-time Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett is finally making her Broadway bow. The actress is currently in previews in “The Present,” an adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s first play “Platonov.”

DiLella: What does Broadway mean to you?

“I think it’s got a very particular and eclectic audience,” Blanchett said. “I was really interested to see that Simon McBurney’s ‘Encounter’ is sitting alongside sort of ‘Hamilton’ and ‘Kinky Boots.’ I’m excited to be performing, all of us to be performing for that sort of eclectic mix of people.”

The play is set at a birthday party for Blanchett’s character of Anna.

“And so she brings everyone from her past together to see what’s worth salvaging,” the star said.

“The Present” has been adapted from the original Chekhov source material by Blanchett’s husband Andrew Upton.

“I got very attracted to, it’s really only one of the strands in the narrative, which is this beautiful dynamic between three men and a woman,” Upton said.

“The Present” comes to New York after a run at The Sydney Theatre Company back in 2015. The Broadway production features the entire Australian cast including Richard Roxburgh.

“It’s a play about a woman having a birthday and inviting all of her great friends around to share this experience, and of course it all goes terribly wrong. To do that with a company of players that you’ve worked with for so many years across so many permutations of experience is very special,” said Roxburgh.

And you can catch “The Present” starring Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh now in previews at The Barrymore Theatre. Opening night is set for Sunday, January 8. [Source]
