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.

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]

Cate Blanchett recently talked about “Thor: Ragnarok” in an interview and also expressed her excitement to be a part of the film. The actress also discussed what she plans to do in terms of preparation for her undisclosed role.

Cate Blanchett expressed her thrill to be in a Marvel film during an interview with South Korea’s SK-II. In her video interview below posted by Moloive on YouTube, the Australian actress briefly talked about her participation in a Marvel film. The topic was brought up after she was asked about her future film projects. Obviously, Blanchett was talking about her “Thor: Ragnarok” involvement.

“A Marvel film, which I’m super, super excited about. I’ve only done action a couple of times. It feels like a…departure is too strong a word, but it certainly feels like a change for me,” she said.

Cate Blanchett also revealed what she is excited about with her involvement in the sequel. She admitted that she is “looking forward to getting really fit.” The actress also teased that she might be wearing a Lycra for her character in the film. She said she is hoping that her Marvel film will earn her “a bit of street cred” from her children.

In a separate SK-II interview posted by Comic Book Movie, the Hollywood star said she was offered the role “completely out of the blue.” She admitted that she considers the role as a “gift” because it came just in time when she had told herself to get fit this year.

Screen Australia says actor will direct television series based on the story of a German-Australian woman who was wrongly detained as an illegal immigrant

Cate Blanchett is to make her first foray behind the camera, developing and directing a new television series, Stateless, based on the life of Cornelia Rau.

Rau, a German-Australian woman and former Qantas air hostess, attracted attention in 2005 after she escaped the controversial Sydney sect known as Kenja only to be held at the Baxter detention centre in South Australia as a suspected illegal immigrant.

As the national debate around immigration and detention continues to swirl in Australia, Blanchett could not have chosen a more topical subject for her debut.

“Stateless will be Cate Blanchett’s first venture into high-end TV,” said Screen Australia who is funding the script’s development by writer Elise McCredie.

“Inspired by the incredible true story of Cornelia Rau, Stateless is a powerful and timely series about identity, belonging and the extraordinary lengths people will go to find their place in the world,” the funding body said.
