Cate Blanchett Drop Out of ‘While We’re Young’

There is still time to find the replacements.

JustJared.com reported actors James Franco and Cate Blanchett dropped out of “While We’re Young” film before it starts filming in mid-June in New York City.

Franco dropped out due to the scheduling conflict with Sam Raimi’s “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” in which he plays the lead role.

Blanchett pulled out of the project after Franco’s departure, but it is not known for what reason. Maybe it has something to do with the production of “The Hobbit” films?

Comedian-actor Ben Stiller is still attached to the project despite these departures.

The film is about a free-spirited Booklynite twenty-something couple who inspires an uptight documentarian and his wife to loosen up – with comedic consequences.

Director Noah Baumbach will helm the project. Baumbach and Stiller worked together previously in “Greenberg.”

Baumbach has a unique comedic approach towards his movies. The writer-director has a long list of movies in his filmography including “Kicking and Screaming,” “Highball,” “Mr. Jealousy,” “The Squid and the Whale,” “Margot at the Wedding,” and “Greenberg.”

He also wrote the script for “While We’re Young.” His long-time film collaborator Scott Rudin (“Greenberg, “Fantastic Mr. Fox”) will be producing the project and Focus Features will handle the distribution.

Greta Gerwig was previously set to play the young wife, but she left earlier from the project due to scheduling issues.

So with three out of four departed from the project—hopefully they could still save this film. Time for a casting call for new actors!

Cate Blanchett Critics Split Down The Middle On Givenchy Oscar Dress

Lots of critics and divided opinions about the dress Cate was wearing at The Oscars© , what do you think?

Cate Blanchett – Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett wasn’t nominated for any awards at Sunday’s Oscars but the actress still remains the talk of the web.

The usually regal actress donned a soft lavender Givenchy Haute Couture gown with a cut-out in the front that many fashion analyst were not thrilled about calling it “the back of a well upholstered chair”. Yet, Cate has viewers nearly split down the middle. Huffington Post readers Loved the gown at 49% while 51% Loathed it! Many voters who initially loathed the gown are admitting to the piece “growing” on them.

It’s certainly a risky choice but perhaps UK’s The Metro puts it best, “It was an edgy and fashion forward look that only someone as beautiful as Blanchett could carry off”. What’s your take on Cate Blanchett’s Givenchy gown?

Oscar Inspirations

InStyle made a brief interview to Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett. check it out

NICOLE: The first time I saw you was in Elizabeth, and I was just amazed. You were so young when you did it and so strong. You can really see your training and intelligence in that performance. That made me proud as a fellow Australian.

CATE: Well, you’ve been an absolute trailblazer in terms of Australian film actors working internationally.

NICOLE: I can recall as a little girl I watched the American film industry from afar. I remember being six or seven and watching the Oscars in my pajamas, drinking hot chocolate, in this tiny little suburb in Sydney, Australia; it seemed like a faraway land, like Oz.

CATE: People don’t really have a preconception about what you’re like, so there’s a kamikaze quality to Australian actors, because they can come up under the radar.
