Andrew Dominik’s “Blonde” started production this week, and Netflix confirmed the extended cast for the project. Dominik wrote the screenplay for the movie as well, which is based on the acclaimed novel by Joyce Carol Oates.

Netflix‘s official logline for the film reads, “Based on a bestselling novel from five-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Joyce Carol Oates, BLONDE is the boldly reimagined private story of the world’s most famous sex symbol, Marilyn Monroe. The film is a fictional portrait of the model, actress and singer during the 50s and 60s, told through the modern lens of celebrity culture.”

If you like to read the original work before seeing the adaptation, you can find Joyce Carol Oates’ collection right here on Amazon.

Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Tracey Landon, and Scott Robertson produced the movie, which stars Ana de Armas, Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale, Julianne Nicholson, Lily Fisher, Evan Williams, Xavier Samuel, Caspar Phillipson, Toby Huss, Sara Paxton, and David Warshofksy.

Production on the film is currently underway in Los Angeles.

Ana de Armas is also starring in Rian Johnson’s “Knives Out” mystery-thriller. That movie also stars Chris Evans, Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Noah Segan, Edi Patterson, Riki Lindhome, Jaeden Martell, and Christopher Plummer. “Knives Out” is expected to release in theaters on November 27th.
