    If Judi Dench was looking for a way to earn one more Oscar nomination in case she gets snubbed for Cats, she may have just found one.

    Dench has been cast in Blithe Spirit, an adaptation of the 1941 play of the same name by Noel Coward. She will star as Madame Arcati, a medium who causes a lot of chaos after she accidentally summons the ghost of the deceased wife (Isla Fisher) of a novelist who had sought her services (Dan Stevens).

    The play was previously adapted in 1945; that film being directed by David Lean, starring Margaret Rutherford, Rex Harrison, and Kay Hammond, and winning the 1947 Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.

    This… is gonna be interesting.

    This sounds awesome! Elvira should be Anne Hathaway or Claire Foy

    I actually think they would be better suited to play Ruth, the second wife of Dan Stevens’ character.

    Elvira will basically be trolling the other three characters for the entire film. Fisher is more than capable of taking that to the nth degree.

    Speaking of Fisher, be prepared for category fraud if this gets Oscar attention. Although she’s co-lead with Dench, odds are she’ll get the same treatment Cate Blanchett got with Notes on a Scandal because, well, her co-lead is the Dame!
