Cate Blanchett will star in the biopic, Cancer Vixen: A True Story for Working Title.
She will possibly produce the film through her Dirty Films company. It's based on the memoir by cartoonist Marisa Acocella Marchetto, a fashionista for Glamour and the New Yorker; The Hollywood Reporter notes the book will be released on Tuesday. It describes how she fell in love with a celebrity restaurateur and was planning their wedding when she was diagnosed with breast cancer and realized that she had let her health insurance lapse. Her industry friends rallied around her as she wore killer shoes to chemo sessions and strove to get married on time.
No production schedule is set for Cancer Vixen: A True Story.
