The long-awaited biographical film of Marilyn Monroe Blonde I just got an important update. On Wednesday, it was confirmed that the upcoming Netflix movie, in which he will star Blade Runner 2049 and There is no time to dieAna de Armas as Monroe, officially earned an NC-17 rating for “some sexual content”. This is the highest rating that can be given by the American Film Association and is traditionally given to films that have adult content that is considered suitable for viewers aged 18 and over. This is the first mainstream movie in several years to maintain an NC-17 rating, following recent movies Midsommar, Wrong turn, Spiraland The King’s Man all processed to an R rating, with Midsommar then releasing an additional cut without rating. Blonde It also has the honor of being the first Netflix original film to receive an NC-17 rating.
Adapted from Joyce Carol Oates’s 2000 novel of the same name, Blonde is a fictional picture of Monroe’s life, which saw her become a cultural figure as an actress, model and singer until her death in 1962. The film is written and directed by Andrew Dominik, who had previously worked The murder of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford and Killing them gently. The play is in the works in some form or fashion since 2010, with Naomi Watts and Jessica Chastain initially starring in different places and times.
The De Armas cast took place in March 2019, with production starting in August. Cast members include Adrian Brody as Arthur Miller, Bobby Cannavale as Joe DiMaggio, Caspar Phillipson as John F. Kennedy, Julianne Nicholson as Gladys Pearl Baker, Toby Huss as Alan “Whitey” Snyder, Xavier Samuel as Charles Chaplin Jr. . and Luke Whoriskey as James Dean.
In the years since production Blonde It started, rumors circulated about the project, with some speculating that Dominik was clashing with Netflix for the final track of the film. In an interview with ScreenDaily earlier this yearDominik confirmed that this was not the case and that his hope was that the film would retain its NC-17 rating.
“It’s a demanding film,” Dominik explained. “If the public does not like it, that is the problem of the audience. It does not run for public office.”
“It’s an NC-17 movie about Marilyn Monroe, it’s something you want, right?” added Dominic. “I want to go see the NC-17 version of Marilyn Monroe’s story.”
Blonde is expected to be released later by Netflix.
