Jessica Chastain In Talks To Play Marilyn Monroe In Blonde
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.22.2014



The Wrap reports that Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, The Help) is in talks to play Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik's adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates' 2000 novel Blonde. Brad Pitt's and Dede Gardner's Plan B and Worldview Entertainment will produce. Worldview optioned the film in 2013, the latest move in a long-developing project. A previous version had Naomi Watts in the starring role, with a photo of her in costume released in 2010. Chastain is a natural redhead, but previously dyed her hair blonde for The Help.

Here's a synopsis of the book: She was an all-American girl who became a legend of unparalleled stature. She inspired the adoration of millions, and her life has beguiled generations of fans and fellow artists. The story of Norma Jean Baker—better known by her studio name "Marilyn Monroe"—has been dissected for more than three decades, but never has it been captured in a narrative as breathtaking and transforming as Blonde.

In her most ambitious work to date, Joyce Carol Oates, one of America's most distinguished writers, reimagines the inner, poetic, and spiritual life of Norma Jeane Baker—the child, the woman, the fated celebrity—and tells the story in Norma Jeane's own voice: startling, rich, and shattering. This most intimate portrait of Norma Jeane reveals a fragile, idiosyncratically gifted young woman who makes and remakes her identity, ever managing to survive against crushing odds to become the definition of stardom. Bit by bit, she tells her own epic story of how an emblematic American artist—perpetually conflicted and intensely driven—lost her way.


Chastain can next be seen in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, along with J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year and Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak.
