Cate Blanchett To Star In Susanne Bier’s ‘The Dig’

cate Cate Blanchett To Star In Susanne Biers The Dig

Screen Daily are reporting that two time Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett is in talks to star in ‘The Dig,’ a drama about one of Britain’s most famous archaeological finds – the Sutton Hoo burial grounds. Oscar-winning Danish director Susanne Bier is attached to direct the feature, which is penned by Moira Buffini (Tamara Drewe, Byzantium). Adapted from John Preston’s novel of the same name, the film explores the story and characters behind the 1938/9 excavation of Sutton Hoo, whose sixth and seventh century riches included a 27-metre ship and which is the likely burial site of King Raedwald of East Anglia.
