Not only did Lucille Ball gift the world with some of the greatest comedy of all time, but she was also the head of her own studio which gave us The Untouchables, Mission: Impossible, and Star Trek; in short, she was one hell of an amazing woman. The Wrap has reported that an exceptionally talented pair will bring Lucille Ball to life once again in a biopic authorized by her children, Desi Arnaz Jr. and Lucie Arnaz.

Escape Artists is developing the Lucille Ball biopic and they've snagged Aaron Sorkin to pen the script which has Cate Blanchett attached to star. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were married in 1940 and just over ten years later went on to create and star in I Love Lucy, one of the most popular and influential television shows of all time. The film will chronicle their twenty-year marriage, of which the filming of I Love Lucy will surely play a large part. Now, who should play Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley?

There are countless biopics in the works each and every year, but not all of them have talent of this calibre attached. STEVE JOBS, which Aaron Sorkin penned, will arrive in theaters on October 9, 2015 and Cate Blanchett's next will be the Todd Haynes' CAROL on November 20, 2015.

I'm there!! I Love Lucy and Cate can easily pull her off.

I think this is the best casting news in a long time. I always wanted to see a Lucy biopic, her life is RIPE with juicy moments. From her marriage to Ricky, to being touted as a Communist to her being the woman who got Star Trek on the air (Yes, we have Lucy to thank for Star Trek!!)
