I don't really know how many Marilyn Monroe biopics we need, but I suppose it's inevitable that there's another one in the works, as fascination with the late sex symbol and cultural icon never seems to die down. This time Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Killing Them Softly) is slated to direct the project, entitled Blonde, and Jessica Chastain has just been signed to play Marilyn.
Actually though, I think this is pretty good casting. Chastain's already shown she has range as a character actress and if you saw her in The Help you know she can be that sort of effervescent blonde- I bet she'll do a good job with this. Blonde is set to come out in 2015, and I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more about it- what do you think? Can Jessica Chastain pull it off?
