An authorized biopic of Hollywood and television star Lucille Ball's life is in the works, according to TheWrap.

The movie boasts hefty star power, with actress Cate Blanchett portraying the "I Love Lucy" actress. Aaron Sorkin will be penning the script. Ball's real-life children, Lucie and Desi Jr., will produce the film.
