The life of Marilyn Monroe haunts film and television producers. Last year, Ana de Armas landed the role of the Hollywood diva in the film by Andrew Dominic, and now the story of the fatal blonde will serve as the basis for the series. The company 101 Studios, behind the drama "Yellowstone", together with the British Seven Seas Films is preparing a television project dedicated to the last months of Marilyn Monroe's life.|
The project, which has not yet found a home on any platform, is an adaptation of The Final Years of Marilyn Monroe ("The Last Years of Marilyn Monroe"). The series will focus on several difficult months in the life of a pop culture icon, prior to her death in 1962. At the time, Marilyn was torn between the mafia, the Kennedy dynasty, and the Hollywood elite. Will touch on the series and the topic of Monroe's relationship with actor Peter Lawford, who turned out to be the last person to speak to Marilyn shortly before her death on August 5, 1962.
“Marilyn Monroe is a mysterious Hollywood icon whose multifaceted life continues to inspire and intrigue. She was an innovator and chose her own path at a time when women's opinions were often ignored. This is the right time to tell her story, because the challenges that Marilyn faces are also important for today's women, ”said Katie Jones, spokeswoman for Authentic Brands Group. The company, by the way, owns the rights to everything related to Marilyn Monroe, and has already given its approval for the shooting of the new series.
The story of Marilyn Monroe has repeatedly become the object of close attention from the producers. In 2011, the drama "7 Days and Nights with Marilyn" was released, which brought Michelle Williams an Oscar nomination, and in 2015, the film "The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe" was shot for TV. Last year a series about the latest events in the life of the blonde beauty was about to be filmed by BBC Studios, but the project seems to be stuck at the development stage.
