Cate Blanchett‘s role in Armageddon Time has finally been revealed.
According to filmmaker James Gray, the 51-year-old award winning actress will be portraying Donald Trump‘s sister in the upcoming project, and she’ll only be on the set for a maximum of three days.
“Cate Blanchett is going to play Donald Trump’s sister which is the weirdest sentence I have ever said,” James shared in an interview, and added that “she’s only in it for three days, she’s doing me a favor.”
He added, “She has a really long speech to deliver, it’s a real scene-stealer. I’ve tried to recreate the real speech as best I could from memory.”
Cate‘s casting was first reported in June of 2020, but the role remained a mystery.
Armageddon Time is planned to be an autobiographical drama movie inspired by Gray’s coming-of-age as a child while attending the Kew-Forest School in Queens, New York.
The former President is an alumni of the school in real life, and the former U.S. president’s sister visited the school when James was a student to give a speech to the student body.
Robert De Niro, Oscar Isaac, Donald Sutherland, and Anne Hathaway are also set to star in the movie.
