CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler and Sarah Paulson have now all joined the Todd Haynes-directed film "Carol" being filmed entirely in Cincinnati.

Picked up by the Weinstein Co. in Cannes last year, Carol chronicles the burgeoning and tempestuous relationship between two very different women in 1950s New York City.

Oscar winner Blanchett plays the older of the two, a wife trapped in a dead marriage who's desperate to leave but also fears losing her daughter if she does. "Friday Night Lights" alum Chandler, who can currently be seen in "The Wolf Of Wall Street,"  plays Harge, the Blanchett character's jealous husband.

Rooney Mara, best known for her lead role in the 2011 American adaptation of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," will play the young clerk, Therese Belivet.

For seven weeks, film crews will be found in 60 different shooting locations around the Queen City.

Filming is scheduled to start in mid-March.
