Brad Pitt has come onboard to produce Andrew Dominik’s long-gestating $20 million drama about Marilyn Monroe.
Based on the imaginary Monroe memoirs “Blonde” by Joyce Carol Oates, the story is said to look at the “imagined inner life of the iconic actress”.
Naomi Watts was previously attached to play Monroe when the project was setup at Wild Bunch, but the film is now a whole different incarnation.
Pitt tells 24 Frames that “We’re going to get this one done” and adds that it is uncertain right now if he will take a role in the movie as well. Shooting could begin as early as the start of next year.
Pitt and Dominik previously worked together on both “The Assassination of Jesse James” and the upcoming “Killing Them Softly”.
