Cate Blanchett is said to be in “TAR”.
The 51-year-old actress will team up with director Todd Field on the drama film he wrote and will be responsible for Focus Features.
According to the deadline, the film is slated to begin production in September, but the details of the plot are being kept under wraps for now.
Blanchett is currently filming Eli Roth’s “Borderlands,” a large-format adaptation of the best-selling video game.
She will star in the upcoming film alongside Edgar Ramirez, Kevin Hart, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ariana Greenblatt, Florian Munteanu, Haley Bennett and Jack Black.
Roth recently said: “What an incredible honor to have an actor of Edgar’s caliber, talent and charisma play against Cate Blanchett and this remarkable cast.
“Atlas has to be a really magnetic personality, someone with charisma and charm, but that threatening atmosphere.” I’ve been a fan of Edgar since his early appearances and he keeps surprising me with every dramatic twist.
“We want to create something wild, funny and very different from anything you’ve seen Edgar before. I’m so excited to be working with him.”
Blanchett and Black previously worked with Roth on the 2018 fantasy film “The House with the Clock in the Walls” – and the director is delighted that Black will cast the role of the sarcastic robot Claptrap.
Roth said, “I’m really looking forward to reuniting with Jack, this time in the recording booth.” Claptrap is the funniest character in the game, and Jack is perfect for bringing him to the big screen. “
The film is based on the video game franchise ‘Borderlands’, which has sold more than 68 million units worldwide, making it one of the most successful game brands in history.
