Cate On Indy

I'd practically forgotten that Cate Blanchett was even in Indy 4 (I'm just gonna keep calling it that for now, if y'all don't mind); have we seen any photos of her on the set? Karen Allen's gone and stolen all her hype! That's a sentence I never thought I'd ever write. Anyway, here's what Cate has to say about the filming, via EW:

EW: ...what can you tell me about the Indiana Jones film?

Cate Blanchett: It's phenomenal to be working with Harrison Ford and Spielberg and Karen Allen, all of whom were in one of the most amazing experiences of my childhood, watching that film. And then I'm stepping into the frame. It's a real Zelig moment for me. It was really quite moving when Karen filmed her first entry into the film the other day. You know, Spielberg said, ''I feel so young!'' [Laughs] It was fantastic.

EW: And what is the Spielberg experience?

Blanchett: Look, he's an absolute master. He knows the genre like the back of his hand, and he makes fantastic suggestions. He's really fast and incredibly creative. Like, if a shot's not working, he'd completely change it and do something equally as amazing. And it's weird, because I feel like I know all the movies as an audience [member]. I know all the lighting, I know all the elements. But it's coming together in a new way. And Harrison looks f---ing great.

I wish Cate weren't in this because otherwise I'd have no desire/need to see it. Grr.
