Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Aus­tralian ac­tor Cate Blanchett (left) is in talks to star in the big screen adap­ta­tion of Maria Sem­ple’s 2002 best-sell­ing novel Where’d You Go, Ber­nadette? The movie will be di­rected by Boy­hood helmer Richard Lin­klater. The novel has been adapted by Fault in our stars writ­ers Scott Neustadter and Michael H We­ber. It cen­tres on an ago­ra­pho­bic ar­chi­tect and mother named Ber­nadette Branch who goes miss­ing prior to a fam­ily trip to Antarc­tica. The book is nar­rated by her 15-year-old daugh­ter Bee Branch. The novel un­folds in its own quirky way — via emails, let­ters, FBI doc­u­ments, cor­re­spon­dence with a psy­chi­a­trist and a bill for an emer­gency room visit in­volv­ing the tit­u­lar char­ac­ter. Nina Ja­cob­son and Brad Simp­son are pro­duc­ing along­side Me­gan El­li­son.
