Dench and Blanchett Caught Passing ‘Notes’


Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett are set to star in the Patrick Marber scripted feature Notes On a Scandal for Fox Searchlight, and director Richard Eyre.

The adaptation of the Zoe Heller novel “What Was She Thinking?” finds Blanchett playing Sheba Hart, a free-spirited and charismatic art teacher brought down by scandal when she is arrested for engaging in sexual relations with a 15-year-old student. Dench will play Barbara Covett, a fellow teacher who befriends the younger woman and observes her fall from grace.

If the name of Patrick Marber doesn’t sound familiar, he is the one behind last year’s amazing movie Closer, he wrote the screenplay based on his own play. He also wrote the screenplay for the upcoming romantic thriller Asylum over at Paramount Classics.
