New photos from the Marilyn Monroe movie “Blonde” show Ana de Armas posing with various contemporaries, including her famous husbands Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller.
Blonde is an upcoming American biographical film written and directed by Andrew Dominik. Adapted from the 2000 novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates, the film is a fictionalized interpretation of the life of actress Marilyn Monroe, played by Ana de Armas, with Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale and Julianne Nicholson appearing in supporting roles.
Blonde will be released on Netflix on September 23
So Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Tracey Landon, Brad Pitt and Scott Robertson are producing the film, which, after a long development period that began in 2010, began production in Los Angeles in August 2019. Production wrapped in July 2021, following the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
Blonde is scheduled to be released on September 23, 2022 by Netflix. It is rated NC-17 for its graphic sexual content and will be the first of its kind to be released through a streaming service.
Blonde depicts Marilyn Monroe during her rise to fame, contrasting her flawless on-screen appearance with her lecherous private life. Although the account is fictionalized, the facts of her life are presented in the film, such as her affair with President John F. Kennedy (played in the film by Caspar Phillipson, who played the same role in 2016’s Jackie).
The film’s cast also includes Julianne Nicholson, Toby Huss, Sara Paxton, Rebecca Wisocky, Scoot McNairy, Dan Butler and Garret Dillahunt. Netflix kicked off the Blonde marketing campaign with a trailer earlier this year, and now there are new photos.
Vanity Fair shared an exclusive set of images from the Blonde set, showing de Armas’ miraculous transformation into Monroe, as well as the actors bringing the characters surrounding her to life.
