Blonde story

Blonde tells an explicitly fictionalized story of Marilyn Monroe’s inner life in the 1950s and 1960s, based on a celebrated book by Joyce Carol Oates. It promises to be a lusty, unwavering look at what it was like to be the world’s foremost sex symbol over those years, but with a fantastic slant.

The writer of the original book has already praised the film after seeing a rough cut in 2020 as well:

The film is the brainchild of director and writer Andrew Dominik of Killing Them Softly and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and it took him years to get it made, but Netflix seems to finally have the money.

The fact that both Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller are on the cast list shows that the film will go into Monroe’s marriage to any celebrity while also knowing that she will get to know President Kennedy just like she did in real life.

There’s also a listing for “Young Norma Jeane,” Monroe’s real birth name, so we’re assuming we’re at least getting a glimpse of Monroe’s early life as well.
