Cate Blanchett to pay comedian Lucille Ball in new Amazon film

Deadline reports two-time Academy Award victor Cate Blanchett will play Lucille Ball in an upcoming biopic about the Western New York native and her husband, Desi Arnaz. Lucy and Desi also has the blessing of the couple's adult children.

The couple's children, Lucie Luckinbill and Desi Arnaz Jr, are involved in the project, which is in the early stages of development.

Ball was the first woman in Hollywood to own a studio, Desilu Productions, which produced Star Trek.

Though Lucille initially filed for divorce in 1944, she finally went through with the legal separation in 1960, married again and died in 1989.

Blanchett has won Academy Awards for The Aviator and Blue Jasmine. The film will star Cate Blanchett - initially announced when the film was greenlit in 2015 - as the hilarious redhead in a story that charts her tumultuous relationship and career success opposite husband and band leader Desi Arnaz. Aaron Sorkin, the writer of West Wing and The Social Network, has written the screenplay.

Cate recently appeared in the Dan Rather biopic Truth and her latest movie credits include roles within Cinderella and Carol. According to SlashFilm, Ball was 28 when she fell in love with a 23-year-old Arnaz on the set of the RKO Studios movie "Too Many Girls".

The original report noted that there are a number of names in the mix to play Arnaz, Javier Bardem being one of them, as well as William Frawley and Vivian Vance, who played the loveable Fred and Ethel Mertz in the classic 1950s black-and-white comedy series.
