Blanchett not patient enough to direct films
Actor Cate Blanchett is putting off plans to make her directorial debut because she fears she’s too impatient to see a film to its completion.
The 42-year-old, who is working as co-artistic director at Sydney Theatre Company in her native Australia for the past three years, admits she has her sights set on one particular project, but she’s hesitant to step behind the camera.
“There is a film I’d love to direct, but I just don’t know if I’ve got the patience,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Blanchett as saying. “In theatre, you can have an idea and get on with it. In film, you hear of people sitting on an idea for eight years, by which time, the idea has changed and evolved and become something else,” she added.
