Netflix has released the New trailer for ‘Blonde’, the biopic starring Ana de Armas that focuses on the figure of Marilyn Monroe. A social icon of an America in times of change, the mythical actress will have her biographical film directed by Andrew Dominik (‘Kill Them Softly’, ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the cowardly Robert Ford’), which will adapt Joyce’s novel of the same name Carol Oats.
“Marilyn Monroe only exists on screen“. With these words, Ana de Armas anticipates what ‘Blonde’ will be and how she will delve into the profound difference between her successful public life and her stormy private life. Norma Jean Baker preferred her name to the one imposed on her by Ben Lyon, producer of 20th Century Fox, assuring that a nickname of hers would bring her luck. She is the daughter of Gladys Baker and a father who fled without looking back, Monroe would have a meteoric career (but with ups and downs) until she became one of the symbols of the sexual revolution in the United States.. She will narrate her sexual forays and how, aided by her innate beauty, she will be adored, sought after and desired by many, including allegedly President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
The film was expected to arrive on the streaming platform in 2021, but it was said that the sexual content of the tape would have caused the release date to be delayed. However, last June it was announced that ‘Blonde’ would arrive on Netflix on September 23. In the United States, Dominik’s film has received an age rating for over 17 years, and the director of it has already commented that “has something to offend everyone”. The cast is completed by Bobby Cannavale, Adrien Brody, Julianne Nicholson, Xavier Samuel and Evan Williams. The script is signed by the director himself and produced by Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Tracey Landon and Scott Robertson.
An adaptation that took its time
As reported by Vanity Fair, Dominik has been developing this project for no less than 15 years, taking his time to find the right actress for a role of such magnitude. The director has revealed that Naomi Watts and Jessica Chastain were in orbitbut finally the actress of ‘Daggers in the back’ took over the role.
When asked why make a Marilyn Monroe movie, Dominik answered clearly. “I saw the opportunity to describe an adult life through the wrong filter of childhood beliefs and traumas”. For her part, the writer of the book herself compared the figure of Monroe with that of Madame Bovary. “Both women were young women whose vision of love was very romantic and very unrealistic. Marilyn was so insecure, so demanding, that it was hard for anyone to love her or even help her.. However, many men, including her second husband baseball player Joe DiMaggio, tried it before backing down out of fear.”.
‘Blonde’ is coming to Netflix next September 23.
