Ana de Armas as Marylin for Blonde

After notably Michelle Williams in My Week with Marilyn, It is Anna of Arms who will have the heavy task of embodying Marilyn Monroe on the screen. The iconic actress will indeed be the subject of a biopic directed by Andrew Dominik (Cogan). Title Blonde, the film is adapted from the fictional biography of Joyce Carol Oates and is scheduled for Netflix. On paper, we tell ourselves that the platform is a very good project. Ana de Armas also seems perfect for this role, she who has already turned the head of Keanu Reeves in Knock Knock (2015) and Ryan Gosling in Blade Runner 2049 (2017), and will soon be alongside Daniel Craig in To die can wait (October 6, 2021).

However, it seems to get complicated for Blonde. The film counts breaking the image of Marilyn and not be a classic biopic. Thus, Andrew Dominik would have proposed a film a little too shocking. At least to Netflix’s taste.

Netflix shocked by the sex scenes?

The major problem for the platform would be the presence in the film of too raw sex scenes and graphics. What to leave perplexed when we see the presence on Netflix of programs soft porn like 365 Days Where Sex/Life. This information comes from Jordan Ruimy, but stay to take with a grain of salt.
