talking about putting her royal robes back on for a third time
to play the 16th century monarch Elizabeth I. The first film
Elizabeth earned the actress an Oscar nomination for her
role as the charismatic monarch in 1998, and Blanchett insists that
she is ready for a third film on the Virgin Queen's life.
"There are endless possibilities with Elizabeth... And I think
there will be a lot more Elizabeth (films) because she's endlessly
fascinating", Moviehole quoted, Blanchett, as saying. Director
Shekhar Kapur, the director of the two films, is very keen on
making the trilogy. "The first one was about power and love,
betrayal, survival, separation and disengaging all in the context
of power. This one is much more about absolute power ... and being
divine ... and what that means" he said. "The third one (would be)
about if you become a model in your life, how would you face
mortality... If you go to the top, and you suddenly are going to
die, you become average, ordinary by dying because everybody dies,"
he further added.
