Cate Blanchett has entered into advanced talks to star in Richard Linklater’s WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADATTE, an adaptation of the Maria Semple-penned bestseller. Megan Ellison of Annapurna Pictures is producing, along with Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson of Color Force.
The film follows an agoraphobic architect who suddenly vanishes before a family trip to Antarctica. Narrated by her teenage daughter, the story is then told via emails, letters, documents, and through talks with a psychiatrist. The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns scribes Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter adapted the novel.
Blanchett appeared in two of the awards season’s most buzzed-about entries, the Dan Rather journalism drama Truth and in Todd Haynes’ romance drama Carol. The two-time Oscar winner has been receiving rave reviews for her turn in Carol, which could be poised to earn the actress a third Oscar. She’ll next appear with Christian Bale and Natalie Portman in Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups and will lend her voice to Warner Bros.’ Jungle Book: Origins.
Blanchett is repped by CAA.
