Kate Blanchett- Elizabeth Kate Blanchett Returns as Elizabeth
Since we have been so hot on casting updates lately here is another one. Though I would never have expected a sequel to 1998's Elizabeth [bored], a film that went on to get nominated for seven Oscars including Best Actress for Blanchett, it turns out that not only do Universal Pictures have a working title, The Golden Age, but a couple more cast members as well.

Rush and Owen Go to The Golden Age

According to Variety, both Geoffrey Rush and Clive Owen have signed on for The Golden Age. Though I do love both these actors, I feel that their roles in the upcoming sequel will have them play parts that I am not entirely comfortable with, but I guess that's life. In the film Blanchett will reprise her role as Queen Elizabeth I who, with the help of Sir Francis Walsingham [Rush], runs a ruthless campaign in order to help solidify her position and stabilize rule in England.

Clive Owen joins the cast of The Golden Age to play the role of Walter Raleigh, with the film focussing on the relationship between Owen's character and Queen Elizabeth I.

Like Rush and Blanchett, Director Shekhar Kapur will return for the sequel; straight to his seat in the director's chair.

Stay tuned for updates.
