It looks like Cate Blanchett has got some 'splaining to do!

It's been reported that the Carol actress is set to star as comedy legend Lucille Ball in an upcoming biopic!

The untitled film will be produced by Ball's children, Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr., and will follow the comedienne through her 20-year marriage with I Love Lucy co-star Desi Arnaz!

Set to pen the script is Aaron Sorkin, who is no stranger to big budget biopics. Sorkin won an Oscar for his Mark Zuckerberg script The Social Network, and he also has a Steve Jobs film coming out later this year!

Ball has previously been the subject of two TV movies — 2003's Lucy starring Rachel York, and 1991's Lucy & Desi starring Frances Fisher!

We don't want to get our hopes up, but we can smell the award buzz already!
