Cate Blanchett: The Diva Returns

Cate Blanchett won an Oscar for The Aviator, but it should have been her second...her breakthrough role as the Virgin Queen in Elizabeth was as astonishing a performance as you could ever hope for. Which makes today's announcement so tantalizing: Blanchett will supposedly reprise her role as Elizabeth I in The Virgin Queen.

Although Dark Horizons and Ananova ran the news item, I'm skeptical: IMDB has no listing for a movie in pre-production with that title, and Blanchett's page doesn't list it among her heavy filming schedule. As New Yorkers know, she's also here this month doing Hedda Gabler in Brooklyn, which leaves scant preparation time for a shoot next month. But it's so delicious an idea that I 'm going to dream anyway.
