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.”
On October 14th Russel Crowe was interviewed on the set of Robin Hood by The Today Show! Cate herself wasn’t interviewed but the segments did feature scenes of Cate as Marian! She looks fantastic, I can’t wait to see this film. Videos have been added to the video archive, thanks to ConstantCrowe.com for those!
DVD Screen captures have been added to the gallery from Cate’s role in Charlotte Gray! Though the film didn’t do too well in the UK at the box office I enjoyed it, as usual Cate delivered a fantastic performance!
The Guardian is reporting that Irrfan Khan has been cast alongside Cate in Indian Summer, which has now been given the go ahead by the Indian Government – as long as the love scenes are toned down. The film will see a 2011 release and will be directed by Joe Wright!
Khan is poised to play Nehru, the first prime minister of India, who served between 1947 and 1964. Blanchett plays Lady Mountbatten, the wife of the last Viceroy of the British Indian Empire. Hugh Grant is due to take the pivotal role of Lord Mountbatten.
A few days ago Cate and Andrew attended the Launch of Sydney Theatre’s New Season! Cate looked very stylish in jeans and a detailed black blazer! I loved this look, so much better than the previous one. Pictures have been added to the gallery.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Cate’s upcoming film Indian Summer has been put on hold by the Indian government whilst they review the contents of the script.
The movie tells of Lord and Lady Mountbatten’s return to India in 1947 and the relationship shared between Lady Edwina and India’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru.
However, filming of Indian Summer, starring Cate Blanchett and Hugh Grant, has now been put on hold while the Indian government reviews the portrayal of the pair.
Cate is out and about in Australia today attending the “Screen Worlds” Exhibition Opening In Melbourne! I’m so glad she’s feeling better after her accident. Normally I love what Cate wears but I have to admit, I’m not too fond of this choice! Check the pictures out in the gallery.
Not much to report really, Cate has returned to work on A Streetcar Named Desire, so I just thought I’d add these stills that we didn’t have! I have Charlotte Gray screen caps coming up, so keep checking back ;]
Whilst things with Cate are a little quite I’ve taken the opportunity to open a video archive for Cate Blanchett Fan! Unlike the old one, this is a streaming video archive so you can watch them without the hassle of downloading! I hope you like it, not many videos there now but I’ll work on it soon.
