On this site they say Cate is still reading the script for The Hobbit, we will keep our finger crosses to see a glimpse of her at the movies. Also you can see several pics from The Hobbit cast.
Cate Blanchett has admitted that she is yet to see a script for The Hobbit.
Blanchett plays ethereal character Galadriel in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings prequel, but she is unsure how big her role is, or even what she’ll be doing.
The Australian star told Collider.com, “Obviously Galadriel is only a small part of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but it was probably the best three weeks I ever had. I haven’t seen a script yet, so I don’t know what I’ll be doing. Obviously Galadriel doesn’t factor very strongly in The Hobbit. I think it’s in the middle of the year that it is happening.”
While most of the original Lord of the Rings cast will be returning for the 3-D epic, one star who won’t be back is Liv Tyler, who recently told Collider.com that, “I haven’t heard from anybody and that makes me kind of sad.”
Part one of The Hobbit is due for release on December 19th, 2012.
Cate Blanchett has joked she spent “24 hours a day” in her forensic scientist suit to prepare for her cameo in Hot Fuzz.
The Hollywood actress played police investigator Janine, who is the ex-girlfriend of Simon Pegg’s character Nicholas Angel, in the 2007 British comedy. Written by Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, the movie tells the story of jealous colleagues who conspire to get a top London policeman transferred to a small town and paired with a witless new partner.
Cate had a cameo role in the film and wore a mask during her brief scene. The star has joked the shoot took “months” of planning.
“For Hot Fuzz, it was months and months of detailed preparation. I sat down with the creative team and had a huge input into the production design, and then I wore that white suit and mask for at least three or four weeks, for 24 hours a day to get the feel of what it is like to be a forensic scientist. It was exhausting,” she laughed to Collider.com. “I got my eyelashes tinted as well!”
The 41-year-old – who is best known for her roles in Elizabeth and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – played the elf queen Galadriel in Peter Jackson’s acclaimed The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Cate thinks director Pete and his partner Fran Walsh are “gifts” to the film world for producing such great movies.
Gosh! I can’t wait to watch this
The Hobbit cameras roll in New Zealand after painful delays
Despite delays caused by industrial disputes, financial problems and a stomach ulcer, filming of The Hobbit has finally begun in New Zealand.
The long-awaited prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy began filming this week, capping the New Zealand-born producer and director Peter Jackson’s epic struggle to get the US$500 million (Dh1.8 billion) two-part production off the ground.
Since announcing his intention to film The Hobbit, Jackson has clashed with his country’s actors’ union over a collective bargaining agreement, with the producers, Time Warner Inc, threatening to shoot the film in another country. The New Zealand government responded by changing its labour laws last year to keep the production there.
However, this delay led to the departure of the original director, Guillermo Del Toro, who had other film commitments, forcing Jackson to take the reins. The films then became involved in a race dispute when a film extra claimed she was informed she couldn’t play one of the hobbits because her skin was too dark for the role. Jackson also had surgery on a perforated stomach ulcer earlier this year.
Both films will star the British actor Martin Freeman as the hobbit Bilbo Baggins. Joining him are Cate Blanchett, Sir Ian McKellen, Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom and Andy Serkis.
Adapted from JRR Tolkien’s book, The Hobbit is set in Middle Earth and follows Bilbo in his journey to reclaim the lost Dwarf kingdom of Erebor.
Part one is scheduled to be released in December of next year, with part two due for release in 2013.
I’m very happy to work with Saoirse, the girl I met during Guerin film, says Cate
OSCAR-winning actress Cate Blanchett may be appearing in her first film with Saoirse Ronan — but she has a long history with her family.
Blanchett (42) stars alongside the Carlow teen in action flick Hanna, but she reveals that she knew Saoirse when she was just a young child.
Blanchett explains that she worked with Saoirse’s actor father Paul while filming Veronica Guerin in Dublin in 2003, and even spent time with her when Saoirse would visit on set. “I had worked with her father on Veronica Guerin,” she said. “When I bumped into him at the Oscars ceremony in 2008, it was then that I realised that the little child who used to visit the set was one of the year’s nominees — Saoirse.”
And she was clearly wowed by Saoirse’s acting chops and praised her co-star’s performance in the upcoming movie. “Saoirse is an extraordinary actor and an incredible presence, self-possessed and unaffected. She connects with things by drawing on her own experiences. She has a rare spirit,” she said.
Cinemagoers will soon see the 16-year-old in the lead role of Hanna, where she plays a teenage assassin raised by her rogue CIA agent father, played by Eric Bana, in rural Finland.
Bana revealed he was taken aback by the strength of his onscreen daughter, who did several of her own stunts in the high-octane action scenes.

If there’s one leading lady who doesn’t get as much red carpet fashion cred as she deserves, it’s Cate Blanchett. Her effortless, chameleon-esque style allows her to take risks, opting for daring silhouettes with stunning detailing. She’s not one to shy away from color or statement jewels, which we think is a winning combination.
