More from the “Generation One” campaign & movie news

I’ve added five more photos from Cate attending the Generation One campaign which was fight to end indigenous poverty in Australia.

In movie news, according to Cate’s IMDB, it seems she might be a busy lady soon as she is rumored to be starring in The Dangerous Husband, North of Cheyenne and (a personal hope because I would love to see Cate reprise her role as Galadriel!) The Hobbit: Part 1. Cate has also been seemingly cast in Hanna alongside Eric Bana and Saoirse Ronan. Synopsis below:

A 14-year-old who was raised by her father to be a cold-hearted killing machine connects with a French family who look to help ease her into a more conventional life.

Indian Summer Canceled

Despite reports that Indian Summer had been given the green light by the Indian government it has now been announced by Variety that the film has been canceled due mainly to budget constraints. Below is what director Joe Wright had to say, via BBC News.

Wright told Variety there had been creative differences between the film’s producers and the Indian government.
“We were in between a rock and a hard place,” he said.
“The Indian government wanted us to make less of the love story while the studio wanted us to make more of the love story.”

DVD screen captures of Cate’s role as Petal in The Shipping News (2001) have been added to the gallery. Really not one of my favorite films, but Petal was quite a different type of character for Cate to portray, I love that she’s so versatile and can tackle any type of role.
