The buzz from Cannes is that two biopics about Marilyn Monroe are now in the works. One is an adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’ imaginary memoir ‘Blonde‘. Naomi Watts has been roped in to star in it, while. Andrew Dominik (‘Assassination of Jesse James’) is going to direct. The second biopic is going to be distributed by the Weinstein Co. It’s called ‘My Week With Marilyn,’ and is about the filming of ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’ , in which Marilyn starred opposite Laurence Olivier (who also directed and produced the movie). This Marilyn will be portrayed by Michelle Williams. Who do you think will work the role better?
