Director Andrew Dominik isn’t known for speed as a filmmaker, but he is known for his ability to make excellent films. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is a stunningly beautiful western about fame and the negative effects that come with it.
Dominik’s Killing Them Softly recently premiered at Cannes and reviews have been mostly positive.
This leads us to his next long-discussed project titled Blonde, a biopic about Marilyn Monroe.
The PlayList claims that Dominik would like to get the film going by 2013 and that the only possible problems that Dominik may encounter are rights and/or financing.
Here’s what Dominik said about his Monroe film:
as a central figure in a fairytale [who’s] an orphan child lost in the woods of Hollywood. really sprawling, emotional nightmare fairy-tale type movie” that’s going to be done “real bad.
