Naomi Watts still set to play Marilyn Monroe

Naomi Watts still set to play Marilyn Monroe

Despite recent reports suggesting Naomi Watts was no longer attached, director Andrew Dominik tells We Got This Covered that the actress is still onboard his planned Marilyn Monroe biopic, “Blonde”.

The “Killing Me Softly” director tells the site that he plans to shoot the movie next year.

“I hope to shoot it next year. Naomi Watts is attached at the moment,” said Dominik. When pushed for more details on his plans for the film, the director told us “it’s best not to talk about it right now.”

The reports suggesting Watts wasn’t involved may have arisen as a result of the actress playing Princess Diana in the upcoming “Caught of Flight”, with most assuming the English-born beauty wouldn’t want to tackle another real-life legend so soon after.

“Blonde”, based on the book by Joyce Carol Oates, will offer an all-encompassing look at the life and legend of Monroe.
