Marilyn Monroe Blonde film - biopic about Marilyn Monroe with Naomi Watts


If you liked My Week With Marilyn then get ready for Blond, a semi-fictitious biopic about our darling Norma Jeane.

In Blond (adapted from Joyce Carol Oates' historical novel) Naomi Watts plays Marilyn Monroe, exploring her life from her roots as little-known Norma to a modern day legend.

No stranger to biopics, director Andrew Dominik explained his own vision of Marilyn on Screendaily: "For men she is an object of sexual desire [...]. For women, she embodies all the injustices visited upon the feminine.”

This film has been a long time coming: it's been talked about for more than two years but a release date still hasn't been confirmed. We can't wait!
