The studio behind the production, Lionsgate, declined to comment on the information so far.

If the deal is announced, Blanchett will bring one of the protagonists of the game franchise to life. In the story, she is one of the few women in the galaxy belonging to a class of "mermaids" with special powers, such as the manipulation of space-time.

In the first game, she was one of four playable characters. Afterwards, she returned to appear in other games, but as non-playable.
