Cate Blanchett And Mia Wasikowska Find Carol
For director Todd Haynes

Though he’s produced a few projects since making 2007’s I’m Not There, we haven’t seen a film directed by Todd Haynes for a while. But according to Screen Daily, he’s back with Carol, and he’s bringing Cate Blanchett and Mia Wasikowska with him.

Empire Videblogisode regular Stephen Woolley is producing the new film, which adapts Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Price Of Salt.

Carol will chart a relationship between two women in 1950s New York: a girl in her 20s slogging through a job in a department store (Wasikowska) and a wife trapped in a loveless, unfulfilling, but wealthy marriage (Blanchett).

Phyllis Nagy is at work writing the script, which has producer Elizabeth Karlsen excited. “Todd is without a doubt one of the most talented directors working today," she says in a statement. "His attachment to direct this script and cast is a dream come true."

Blanchett, last seen in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, turned director for Australian shorts compilation The Turning and will be seen in Terrence Malick’s next two movies, Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine and the second Hobbit film. She’s currently working on George Clooney’s The Monuments Men.

Wasikowska was one of Stoker’s leads and will show up in Richard Ayoade’s The Double and Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive alongside that actor we always mention. Old wotsisname... Thomas Middleditch? No... Tamany Hall? Nah... Tom Hiddleston! That's the one.
