The biopic Blonde will be based on a 2000 Joyce Carol Oates novel of the same name. The story fictionally chronicles the life of Marilyn Monroe up until her death in 1962. In the book, Marilyn’s ex-husbands are referred to as The Ex-athlete and The Playwright. Blonde was already a 2001 CBS mini-series with Poppy Montgomery as Marilyn.

This brand new version of Blonde will be under the direction of Andrew Dominik. Andrew has reportedly been trying to get the ball rolling on this biopic for years. In the same vein, he was even thinking about tapping Jessica Chastain for the role of Marilyn.
