Fox Searchlight to Do a "Scandal" with Blanchett & Dench

by | May 11, 2005 | Comments

From the pages of Variety comes news of the timely drama "Notes From a Scandal," which is based on Zoe Heller’s novel "What Was She Thinking?" Cate Blanchett ("Veronica Guerin") will star as a schoolteacher who (very unwisely) decides to have a love affair with…

…one of her 15-year-old students. Judi Dench ("The Chronicles of Riddick") will play an older, wiser mentor who tries to help out when the you-know-what hits the fan. Screenwriter Patrick Marber ("Closer") handled the adaptation duties, and Fox Searchlight plans to start production this August.
