Aaron Sorkin's Lucille Ball script

Sorkin has penned a Lucille Ball biopic just acquired by Amazon Studios. Since this is in development, I would never openly ask for a copy of the script. And if you message me, I'd be glad to explain why.

Who would play Lucy? I don't know if she could pull it off, but I would wager Margot Robbie would be in consideration. Maybe Emma Stone.

The Lucy-Desi comedy hour ran 1957-1960, when Lucille Ball was 46-49. Emma Stone is 29, Margot Robbie is 27, and Cate Blanchett is 48.

So yes, it is a classic case of Hollywood sexism that you'd think of those younger actresses for the part.

Also Blanchett is about to be imprinted into teenage boys brains as Hela, so there's your tentpole market right there.

Enough circle jerking. Anyone have the screenplay? I'm a sucker for anything Sorkin. I'm dreading how Molly's Game will fare under his direction, though.

She Cate Blanchett!! The vast majority of movie goers know and respect her. Plus the fanboys know her from The Lord of The Rings and Hobbit movies.
