While she's a firmly established and talented actress, Julie Delpy has been spreading her wings to the arenas of writing and directing over the past few years. In addition to earning credits for penning "Before Sunrise" and "Before Midnight," she's earned writer/director bonafides on "2 Days In Paris," the sequel "2 Days In New York," "The Countess" and French comedy "Skylab." And now it looks like HBO is wisely enlisting her talents for a burgeoning new series.

While she's a firmly established and talented actress, Julie Delpy has been spreading her wings to the arenas of writing and directing over the past few years. In addition to earning credits for penning "Before Sunrise" and "Before Midnight," she's earned writer/director bonafides on "2 Days In Paris," the sequel "2 Days In New York," "The Countess" and French comedy "Skylab." Now, it looks like HBO is wisely enlisting her talents for a burgeoning new film.

Deadline reports that Delpy is locking down a deal to pen "Cancer Vixen" for the network, with the project being developed as a star vehicle for none other than Cate Blanchett. First announced this spring, the film will be based on the memoir by Marisa Acocella Marchetto, following a famous cartoonist (with stuff in magazines like The New Yorker and Vogue) under her belt, who has to reassess her life after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Didn't we sorta just see this on Showtime's "The Big C"? Either way, we're sure Delpy will bring her own unique flair to the material and you had us sold at Cate Blanchett.

No word yet on when production might begin, but considering it's all at script stage, this one may take a while yet to go through the development process.
