First promo picture of Naomi Watts as Marilyn Monroe in Blonde
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
There are a couple of competing Marilyn Monroe projects that are moving full speed ahead, one of which stars Naomi Watts as the famous blond actress and the other will star Michelle Williams. At the Cannes film festival, a French website has managed to snap a look at a promo image of Marilyn Monroe in the film, tentatively titles BLONDE. This one will focus on Marilyn’s relationships with various famous men, including John F. Kennedy and Joe Dimaggio and will be directed by Andrew Dominik. In the one with Michelle Williams, titled A WEEK WITH MARILYN, it focuses on her time shooting THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL and will be directed by Simon Curtis.
The below picture (in the middle) shows Naomi as Marilyn and I included a picture of Naomi and Marilyn as reference. You can see the resemblence, but when it comes down to it, there’s only one Marilyn, so you’ll never get the look absolutely perfect.
