Turns Down Role in Favor of LOTR
According to the folks at SpiderManHype.com, Cate Blanchett has turned down
an offer to be in an upcoming Spiderman movie. Sam Rami, who is currently filming
The Gift, wanted her to leave six weeks of her schedule free for shooting on Spiderman
after The Gift wraps up (pun not intended).
Blanchett had to refuse Rami because
she will be tied up for a year with Lord of the Rings after shooting on The
Gift is over. SpiderManHype.com did not
mention what role she was asked to play.
Is it just me, or has the frequency
of requests for Cate Blanchett to appear in other films increased since Lord of the
Rings filming started?
Thanks go to SpiderManHype.com for the info for this article.
Also, I never would've discovered this new without the assistance of TheOneRing.com.
