Blonde Update: One name often comes to mind whenever folks think of legendary blonde women: Marilyn Monroe. Monroe was an American actress, singer, and model who became well-known in the 1950s and 1960s as a “blonde beauty” in a slew of movies.

She was a sexual revolution symbol of the time, and the American Film Institute named her one of the finest female film goddesses of the Great Era of Hollywood. So it stands to reason that her narrative has been told and heard quite a number of times.

Marilyn has had unauthorized documentaries and made-for-TV films come out as “untold stories” since the early years after her demise. However, the most current is guaranteed to be a success.

Blonde, which was originally scheduled to be released in 2021, is now going to be released in the fall of this year and has been causing controversy already due to its rating, actors, and narrative.

Here’s all you need to know about the forthcoming Netflix Original Blonde.

Blonde: The Plot

The movie is based on Joyce Carol Oates’s best-selling book of the same name, published in 2000. It is a dramatized depiction of Monroe’s life that began when Oates spotted a portrait of the potential star after she won a beauty pageant in 1941. Blonde’s synopsis states, that the movie brilliantly re-imagines the story of Marilyn Monroe, one of Hollywood’s most lasting legends.”


‘Blonde’ blurs the borders between reality and fiction to examine the expanding divide between her private and public personas, beginning with her tumultuous youth as Norma Jeane and continuing throughout her rise to prominence and love entanglements.”

The movie, which is rated NC-17 for extreme sexual material, will be the very first of its sort to be released on the Netflix streaming service.

Blonde: The Cast & Crew

Andrew Dominik, a New Zealand-born Australian filmmaker and screenwriter, made the film. He is most recognized for his contributions to Brad Pitt’s Killing Them Softly (2012) and, most lately, segments of the Netflix show Mindhunter (2019).

Brad Pitt’s producing business, Plan B Entertainment, Inc., which he started in 2001 alongside Brad Grey and Jennifer Aniston, is also producing the picture, according to Oates.

Dede Gardner, the head of Plan B, and American movie producer Jeremy Kleiner assist him in his production duties. Tracey Landon, who co-produced the forthcoming feature Amsterdam starring Margot Robbie, Christian Bale, and John David Washington, and Scott Robertson, who served as an executive producer on Booksmart (2019), are also producing.

The film’s main actress has received a lot of attention. Ana de Armas will play Marilyn Monroe in the movie. After only one audition, the Cuban and Spanish actress seized the job and captivated the director. Dominik has been looking for the appropriate actress for the part for over a decade. Many people were concerned about Armas’ performance, particularly her strong accent.

The actress is surrounded by a fantastic cast. Adrien Brody, well known for his appearances in The Pianist (2002), King Kong (2005), and The French Dispatch (2021), shall portray the role of Arthur Miller, one of Monroe’s spouses and a well-known writer and screenwriter of the twentieth century.

Another one of Marilyn’s spouses, American baseball legend Joe DiMaggio, will be played by Bobby Cannavale (The Irishman, 2019). There are several more notable actors in the cast, namely Julianne Nicholson (I, Tonya, 2019), Caspar Phillipson (Jackie, 2016), Toby Huss (Halloween, 2018), and others.
