In Images: The Perfect Actress Has Been Cast As Marilyn Monroe In A Movie About Her Life
Platinum blonde wig, curly hair, mole, dark sunglasses... Ana de Armas is perfect as the iconic actress.
Jessica Chastain had been tipped to play Marilyn Monroe in the biopic Blonde, but it has now been confirmed that the role has been given to Ana de Armas. Several photos have been leaked from the film set for Netflix's latest project and we have to admit that the actress certainly bears a striking resemblance to the cinema legend.
Rising star Ana de Armas is appearing on our screens more and more lately. After playing Miles Teller's girlfriend in War Dogs and the perfect nurse in Knives Out, we could soon be seeing her in the forthcoming James Bond movie later this year and in this musical biopic in 2021.
In this ambitious project, written and directed by Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) and produced by Brad Pitt, the actress will be joined by Adrien Brody and Bobby Cannavale. The film is based on the novel Blonde by Joyce Carol Oates, which was published in 2000.
Platinum blonde wig, curly hair, mole, dark sunglasses, vintage car… the leaked photos transport us straight back to the 1950s. In the movie, the eternal muse will cross paths with playwright Arthur Miller (Adrien Brody) and sportsman Joe DiMaggio (Bobby Cannavale), who were both married to her, and with the outspoken actor Joseph Cotten (Eric Matheny). The biopic will also feature flashbacks, as Lily Fisher has been tipped to play a younger version of the star.
