2-Time Oscar Winner Blanchett to Play 4-Time Emmy Winner Ball: Good Idea?

Lucille Ball: The glamour look. Cate Blanchett to play Lucille Ball: Actress won Oscar for incarnating Ball's fellow Rko contract player Katharine Hepburn Two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett is reportedly slated to star in a biopic of former Rko and MGM actress and big-time television comedienne Lucille Ball. Aaron Sorkin, Oscar winner for David Fincher's The Social Network, will be responsible for the screenplay. According to Entertainment Weekly, the Lucille Ball film biopic will focus on Ball's two-decade marriage to her I Love Lucy costar Desi Arnaz. In 1960, the couple had an acrimonious divorce that supposedly “shocked” clueless fans unable to tell the difference between TV reality and real-life reality. Their children, Desi Arnaz Jr. and Lucie Arnaz, had modest acting careers in film and on TV in the '70s and '80s. As per the EW.com report, they're both producing the planned Lucille Ball biopic. »

Lucille Ball is set for a major biopic, with Cate Blanchett starring as the legendary actress and Aaron Sorkin lined up to write the script.

The movie, which is being produced by Ball's two children Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr, will follow the star's career and 20-year marriage to I Love Lucy co-star Desi Arnaz.

The Wrap was first to report this story.

The story of Lucille Ball has been attempted before with two TV movies: 2003's Lucy and 1991's Lucy & Desi.

As well as famed sitcom I Love Lucy, Ball also starred in The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour, The Lucy Show, Here's Lucy and Life with Lucy.

The actress began her career in the late-1920s. She passed away of an abdominal aortic dissection in 1989 at the age of 77. »

Review: 'The Comedians' With Billy Crystal and Josh Gad is Much, Much More than Meta Comedy

Sometimes they create a whole new persona to go along with the character they play (who just so happens to share their name). Other times they glean jokes from real-life events, using the audience's knowledge of their actual actions to poke fun at themselves "in character." The concept is even older than that of the mockumentary, a parody of documentaries made popular in the '80s in films like "This Is Spinal Tap," "Zelig" and, later, "Man Bites Dog."  Both genres have gone through a revitalization period during the so-called golden age of television.

How 'Mad Men' marked the end of one revolution and the start of another

2 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are the 1960s, and then there is "the Sixties," and they only overlap to a degree. Popular culture and popular history have turned the Sixties in America into a dreamscape of mop-topped British invaders, painted hippies, an escalating war in Vietnam, a moon landing, and massive social unrest. But before the rise of the flower children, there were men in suits and short haircuts, women in conservative dresses, and chaste movie musicals dominating at the box office. And it's not like the counterculture obliterated the culture that had already existed. The psychedelic-inflected comedy of "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" was the highest rated show of the 1968-69 season, but the top 10 also included "Gomer Pyle," "Bonanza," "Mayberry Rfd," "Family Affair," "Gunsmoke," "The Dean Martin Show," "Here's Lucy" and "The Beverly Hillbillies."
