Jessica Chastain to play Marilyn Monroe in new biopic | TotalFilm.com
Interesting
Jessica Chastain could be about to step into the shoes of a silver screen icon, with The Wrap reporting that she is in discussions to play Marilyn Monroe in a new biopic. According to the report, Chastain is nearing a deal to star in Blonde, Andrew Dominik’s adaptation of the Joyce Carole Oates biography of the same name. Naomi Watts had initially been attached to play Monroe, but recently departed the project, freeing things up for Chastain to step into the breach. Produced by Brad Pitt, Dominik claims this version of the Monroe story will come together as a "sprawling, emotional nightmare, fairy-tale type movie", which certainly sounds more interesting than your run of the mill biopic. With a Dominik-penned script already in place, production on Blonde is set to begin this summer, ahead of a planned release date in 2015.

In "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him and Her," the details and struggles of a marriage are portrayed from two perspectives in essentially two separate films. "Him" tracks that relationship through the eyes of Conor (James McAvoy), while "Her" makes Eleanor (Jessica Chastain) its focus. This week, the Toronto International Film Festival has been screening the movie, occasionally in reverse order, putting "Her" first. In this video, Ms. Chastain speaks about her role and the dual requirements of playing her character in one film, and Conor's impressions of her character in another.
