Oscar victor Cate Blanchett has been attached to play the beloved, Emmy-winning comedian in the authorized telling of the sitcom stars' romantic and business partnerships.

There's a movie in the works about Lucille Ball that's being written by Aaron Sorkin, with Cate Blanchett attached to star - and we're just so overwhelmed, because this sounds like a truly ~magical~ project.

"Lucy and Desi" will follow the relationship between the "I Love Lucy" couple, whose relationship was well-known on screen and off.

Aside from one-upping HBO's controversial new series Confederate, Jeff Bezos' Amazon is making waves in the film industry via Amazon Studios. The pair married in 1940, eventually creating the iconic sitcom I Love Lucy, through their production company, Desilu, which went on to launch multiple other shows.

Kroon also shared that the company has vowed to "develop an inspection protocol" in order to prevent future tragedies. Local Cincinnati news station WCPO reported that Jarell's family plans to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Lucy and Desi will be an authorized biopic with the support of the former couple's children, Lucie Luckinbill and Desi Arnaz, Jr., overseeing the shoot. It's hoped that a star on par with the Academy Award-winning Blanchett will sign on, with sources reporting Javier Bardem is being considered. The project has always been of interest, not least of all because in addition to its Oscar winning star, it also has a screenplay by another Oscar victor, Aaron Sorkin of The Social Network, Moneyball, and Steve Jobs fame.

The rest of the cast has not been announced, but Deadline reports another Oscar victor - "Skyfall" actor Javier Bardem - is rumored for the role of Arnaz.

Blanchett, who recently made her Broadway debut in THE PRESENT, will soon return to the London stage in the role of Margo Channing in Ivo van Hove's ALL ABOUT EVE.
