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.
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.
You can find it here.
Various websites are reporting that Cate has been injured during a live performance of A Streetcar Named Desire. Apparently Cate was accidentally struck on the head by a prop radio held by Mr. Edgerton. If this turns out to be true, I hope Cate makes a speedy recovery, my thoughts are with her.
Arts Beat– An Australian production of the Tennessee Williams play “A Streetcar Named Desire” turned more physical that expected for its star, Cate Blanchett, who was injured by a stage prop during a performance Wednesday night, Agence France-Presse reported.
The Sydney Morning Herald have posted a new article about Cate’s upcoming play, A Streetcar Named Desire. The article also contained a picture which has been added to the gallery.
“Robyn had mentioned years ago that she had the rights when we were talking about doing Hedda Gabler and I thought, ‘Oooh, no,’ ” says Blanchett. “And then I met Liv in London – and I’d been desperate to work with her – and we were talking about various projects for quite some time and then Andrew [Upton, co-artistic director at the STC] brought up Streetcar. Suddenly the temperature in the room changed.”
