Everything you need to know about Blonde: Netflix’s first adult-only film starring Ana De Armas as Marilyn Monroe

Blonde, Netflix’s upcoming Marilyn Monroe movie, is the latest Hollywood biopic to mark on your calendars. The film is yet another addition to the slew of celebrity screen adaptations to hit our screen, following in the footsteps of Hulu’s Pam and Tommy and of course, right before the forthcoming Madonna film that we’re all at the edge of our seats for. 

The new feature reimagines the life of Ms Monroe and is being touted as Netflix‘s first-ever adult-only movie. But what exactly does that entail? Well for starters, it is rumoured to include some pretty graphic sex scenes hence the 18+ rating, though we can also expect some controversial topics to be explored in the film’s plot, according to early viewers. 

So far, Netflix has yet to release a trailer for Blonde. However, we do have a few other details about what exactly the film will cover and who stars in the famous cast – plus, there’s finally been some information released about the release date of the movie.

Here’s everything you need to know about Blonde… 

Who has been cast in Blonde

Netflix has pulled together a star-studded cast for this one, meaning already our expectations are high. 

Cuban actor Ana De Armas has been cast as Marilyn Monroe in  Blonde. James Bond fans will know Armas from the final Bond film, No Time To Die,  but she has also appeared in a number of other Hollywood blockbusters including Knives Out and Blade Runner. She most recently also starred alongside Ben Affleck in the Amazon Prime film, Deep Water. 

Armas will be joined by Bobby Cannavale and Adrien Brody — who will play the Hollywood sweetheart’s second and third husbands. Meanwhile, Mare of Easttown star Julianne Nicholson will play Monroe’s mother. 

What is Blonde about? 

The film is an adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’ book, Blonde – a fictionalised historical novel chronicling Marilyn Monroe’s life. Delving into the nitty-gritty of everything surrounding the icon and her personal life, the book covers her marriages, affairs, and the theory of her suspected murder. However, rather than being an exact retelling of her life, Oates’ book is considered a reimagining, with added creativity and fantasy thrown in the mix, so we can expect the same from Netflix’s adaptation. 

Created by writer and director Andrew Dominik, Netflix enlisted 12 Years a Slave and Moonlight producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner for the project, too, as well as Brad Pitt who co-produced it. 

Is there a release date for Blonde

At the moment, Netflix has kept quiet about the film’s exact release date. However, it is believed to be dropping on the streaming platform around September 2022, after director Andrew Dominik spilled the beans in an interview with Vulture. “It’s not going to come out until September,” he said.
