Word has it that Cate Blanchett is going to play Hollywood legend Lucille Ball on screen. According to The Wrap, the Oscar-winning writer Aaron Sorkin is penning the script for the upcoming biopic about the I Love Lucy star's 20-year marriage to fellow actor Desi Arnaz.

Meanwhile, adding a personal touch to the production are the late couple's children, Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr., who are apparently producing the project with Escape Artists. We can't wait for this film to come to fruition and see Cate portray the comedy icon.
