Cate Blanchett in discussions to join Cascade

Possible new Project for Cate!

Baltasar Kormakur is in negotiations to direct Cascade, a disaster thriller at 20th Century Fox that Cate Blanchett is circling.

Ridley Scott, Steve Zaillian, Garrett Basch and Michael Schaefer are producing the project, which will be a loose remake of 2003 BBC pseudo-documentary The Day Britain Stopped. Kieran Fitzgerald wrote the screenplay.

Cascade is set after an oil tanker collision in the Persian Gulf sets off an international crisis. Blanchett would play the tanker’s captain, who must find a way to prove that she did not commit a terrorist act.

The Imitation Game helmer Morten Tyldum was loosely attached in the summer, but talks never got off the ground.

Kormakur is the Icelandic director behind the Mark Wahlberg action thriller Contraband and the Wahlberg-Denzel Washington actioner 2 Guns.

He is currently in post on Everest, a true-life drama centering on an ill-fated climbing expedition whose all-star cast includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin and Kiera Knightley, among others.

Robert Redford, Cate Blanchett Ready For ‘Truth’ Sydney Shoot

Cate Blanchett, Robert Redford and director James Vanderbilt have hit Sydney for the start of production on the “Rathergate” biopic Truth, which is scheduled for an eight-week shoot here over the Australian spring.

NSW arts minister Troy Grant said the film is expected to spend more than $9.6 million (AUS $11 million) in direct production expenditure in the state and create 208 jobs both in front of and behind the camera.

The NSW state government has provided incentives to Truth producers through its NSW Trade & Investment’s State Investment Attraction Scheme.

In Truth, based on Mary Mapes’ memoir, Truth and Duty, Redford plays veteran CBS newsman Dan Rather while Blanchett plays Mapes, his producer. The film centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War. It marks the directorial debut of Vanderbilt.

Truth is produced by Brad Fischer (Zodiac, Shutter Island), Vanderbilt and William Sherak of Mythology Entertainment, Brett Ratner of RatPac Entertainment, and Doug Mankoff and Andy Spaulding of Echo Lake Entertainment. The film is financed by the Blue Lake Media Fund and RatPac Entertainment, with support from the NSW government.

“Truth is an incredibly special project, and a story that we have been passionate about telling for a long time. We are grateful for the support and resources that Screen NSW has facilitated and the NSW government has provided,” said Fischer. “We look forward to working with our incredibly talented local cast and crew and hope Truth will be the first of many great collaborations between Mythology and NSW.”

    [quote style=”1″]“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever… Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities… A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.[/quote]
