Marisa Acocella Marchetto

Earlier this summer fans of independent film were generally wowed with the third movie in director Richard Linklater’s walking and talking trilogy, Before Midnight, which was a project that saw him sharing a writing credit with his two stars, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, for a second time. True Delpy-philes know that helping flesh out her character in Before Sunset and Before Midnight isn’t the only writing experience she has though. It’s true that she’s known primarily as an actress, but lately she’s been dipping her toes more and more into the world of writing and directing, which has led to her creating features like Two Days in Paris, its sequel Two Days in New York, and the French comedy Le Skylab. And now Deadline is reporting that Delpy has again been hired to put pen to paper, this time to adapt Marisa Acocella Marchetto’s memoir “Cancer Vixen: A True Story” as a starring vehicle for Cate Blanchett. The deal is in the final stages of being put together by HBO Films, and it will see Blanchett serving as an executive producer as well as the film’s lead.
