Cate Blanchett to di­rect TV se­ries

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Os­car- win­ning ac­tor Cate Blanchett ( left) is set to di­rect an Aus­tralian TV se­ries, State­less, which will cen­tre on the tragic and true story of Cor­nelia Rau who made head­lines in 2004. Rau, a Ger­man citizen and per­ma­nent res­i­dent of Aus­tralia, had es­caped a cult only to be trapped in a bizarre labyrinth of psy­chi­atric and le­gal sys­tems, land­ing her in the no­to­ri­ous Bax­ter Immigration De­ten­tion Cen­tre.

State­less will be Blanchett’s first ven­ture into high- end TV, shared Screen Aus­tralia, the fed­eral Aus­tralian fund­ing agency that an­nounced that it will be pro­vid­ing de­vel­op­ment fi­nance. It is un­clear if Blanchett in­tends to act in the film. The Cin­derella ac­tor had an­nounced last year that she is also plan­ning to di­rect another movie, The Din­ner.
