The film, fully authorized by Lucy Arnaz Jr. and Ricky Arnaz Jr. (who will also produce), will have Jenna Block overseeing for Sony-owned Escape Artists. It looks like it will cover the salad days of Ball’s career, her television shows and marriage to Desi Arnaz, which ended in 1960.
Blanchett and Sorkin have both reaped the benefits of biopics: Blanchett won an Oscar for playing Katherine Hepburn in the Aviator and Sorkin won one for his script for The Social Network.
Sorkin is repped by WME.
