Will Angelina Jolie be playing Marilyn Monroe in an upcoming film?

wenn34075

Yes, this story is likely 95% bullsh-t. But it’s still 5% possible, and after all, weirder things have happened. According to British reports, Angelina Jolie may (MAY) be playing Marilyn Monroe in a new film about… Marilyn’s dog. That’s how far this Marilyn obsession/fetish has come. When Marilyn overdosed, people were sad, because she made them laugh and she was beautiful and vivacious and yet vulnerable and sad, and she actually was a gifted and underrated actress. Nearly fifty years later, and people are still obsessing about her to the point where a book is written through the perspective of her dog Maf. Yeah… this is some sick sh-t. Anyway, the author of this book The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of His Friend Marilyn Monroe is claiming that Angelina will play Marilyn in the big film adaptation:

Author Andrew O’Hagan has said that his novel The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of His Friend Marilyn Monroe will be turned into a film starring Angelina Jolie as the screen siren.

George Clooney will play Frank Sinatra, Mr O’Hagan said.

Production on the film is due to start soon, the Times reports.

Speculation over the project has been growing over the last few months. Scarlett Johansson had been linked to the Monroe role, and Mr O’Hagen had previously suggested that Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks could also play the lead role.

The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of His Friend Marilyn Monroe follows Monroe’s last two years through the eyes of her pet, Maf, a Maltese terrier which was a gift from Sinatra in 1960.

The novel also charts some of the defining moments of the 20th century.

According to the book’s description, Maf – short for Mafia – met several famous faces from the era, including President John F. Kennedy. The dog also accompanied Monroe to acting classes, restaurants, department stores and to Mexico for her divorce from playwright Arthur Miller.

“Marilyn was a strange and unhappy creature, but at the same time she had more natural comedy to her than anybody I would ever know,” observes Maf, who was 3 when Monroe died in 1962 at age 36.

[From The Telegraph]

I don’t buy it… yet. I don’t think Angelina – or anyone else – should be tackling Marilyn’s life and work in this way. It felt icky when Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvina did it all those years ago… and personally, I’m creeped out by all of the Marilyn-styling that goes on today, whether it be Lindsay Lohan or Scarlett Johansson or Paris Hilton or Madonna or whomever. I’d always given Angelina some credit for never participating in any of those “inspired by [fill in the blank of a dead celebrity]” photo shoots. And to even consider playing Marilyn in a film told from the perspective of a dog?!? Shut it down, Angie.

PS… Now, if someone is making a really good biopic of Ava Gardner, only then would I think, “Hey, Angelina should play a dead celebrity.” Just because. Angelina is the only one who could do it well (sucks to be Kate Beckinsale).

    Blasphemy. Pure blasphemy. Leave MM alone.

  2. Sarah says:

    I call bullshit. I can’t see Angelina signing on to a movie about Marilyn Monroe’s dog.

  3. Whatever! says:

    Dear Hollywood.

    Please stop putting Angelina Jolie in Movies. She has stopped trying as an actress and is no longer watchable. Please put in a talented under appreciated or simply unknown Actress as these types of actors always make for a much more enjoyable movie.

    Thanks

  4. aenflex says:

    I’m sorry, I know La Jolie is loved here, and I always seem to be hating on her. I’m sorry for that. BUT. SHE. IS. NO. MONROE.
    Too thin, too bony, voice is all wrong, hair is all wrong, the beauty and innocence and savvy of Ms. Monroe will not be conveyed accurately by Angelina. IMHO, of course. When she gains 30 lbs I’ll reconsider, maybe.

  5. Anna says:

    Other actresses said to be working on MM projects are Michelle Williams and Naomi Watts.

  6. Tiffany says:

    I agree with you Kaiser, there are just some dead stars that lives should not be brought to the big screen. This woman’s life was just so tragic. It seemed that she was just looking for someone to love her, not ‘Marilyn’, and the outcome was not good. It was almost like she amounted he life to the men in it. Let sleeping dogs lie on this one. Even the greatest actress cannot touch this woman’s life.

  7. meme says:

    @aenflex – don’t apologize. i can’t stand her either. jolie is the anti Marilyn.

  8. jzhz says:

    Ugh – horrible. Jolie is very pretty, but in a totally different way than Monroe. Also, she can’t act her way out of a paper bag, and there’s nothing worse than imagining her trying to imitate Monroe.

  9. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Kaiser its not even 5% possible. Its 100% hell to the no Angelina would even consider doing this. Its 100% bulls*it. Angie would never do this. Angelina doesn’t wanna make movies about women like this anymore. Angie is going in a while new direction with acting roles. She doesn’t need or wants to play women like her Gia role.

    @Whatever No one is making you go to see Angelina films and second Angelina is the best effing actress Hollywood has working today. So how about Hollywood keep putting Angelina in their movies so her fans and everyone else can go and see real effing talent while you practice democracy (I am assuming you live in the US) and go see whatever film you wanna see because you live in America and have the option to do that.

  10. Lisa says:

    Why not? I am all for Angelina playing Marilyn Monroe. So long as the film is well directed and produced. Marilyn Monroe’s life was very interesting. She smiled at the world while she was falling apart alone.

  11. Toe says:

    I think its a publicity stunt to give to book more hits. Angie would NEVER play a role like that.
    @Denise: “She’s not a blonde. Angie nor Marilyn are blondes.

  12. bite me says:

    la jolie is not a selfish bitch, that couldn’t get past her own demons to take her life…la jolie only plays empowered capable woman,

  13. Strawberry says:

    Whoa, I thought there already was a Marilyn biopic based on a Joyce Carol Oates novel starring Naomi in the works?

    This is from the Daily Fail, so take it for what it’s worth: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1278431/Naomi-Watts-play-Marilyn-Monroe-Blonde.html

  14. electric says:

    Wow Love Angelina, it sounds like you and Angelina are pretty tight. You must hang out with her frequently to know her preferences so well!

  15. mln says:

    It is such B.S. and typical although she has tons of haters she is currently the biggest actress in Hollywood and the best way to get attention for your project is to say that Angie may be doing it. BTW Kaiser Scorsese is currently developing a movie about Sinatra, Ava was a big part of his life and Scorsese has said he would love to work with Angie so you may get your wish.

  16. meme says:

    angelina the “best effing actress hollywood has working today”. BWAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAAAA, that’s a good one. yeah, i’m sure she’ll nail the best actress oscar for salt.

  17. Jean says:

    No to Angelina playing MM and hell no to her playing Ava Gardner. Jolie doesn’t even resemble Gardner in the slightest. As for a Marilyn biopic, I thought there was one in the works, starring either Naomi Watts or Charlize Theron?

  18. Peppermint says:

    The wails from Lindsay’s padded cell just got a bit louder.

  19. Darlene says:

    There’s no way. Angelina would have to put on AT MINIMUM, 15 lbs. 25 would be more like it.

  20. Sway says:

    I sure hope not. I love her but… No. Please no.

  21. jen says:

    I thought she had promised to retire!

  22. simplicity says:

    From what little I’ve read the book is humorous, Damon Runyon, witty.

    I enjoy ScarJo’s voice, if produced, she has my vote.

  23. marge says:

    @love Angelina… calm down

    ps. I don’t get it why US people assume their is the only democracy around…

  24. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Please tell me this is a joke?

    And sorry Love Angelina, Jolie is NOT the best actress working in Hollywood today. Far from it. She may be the most popular, but she is not the best.

    Meryl Streep is the best actress in Hollywood!

  25. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Thats cute electric. However no, I don’t have to hang with Angelina to make an accurate prediction about her turning down a movie role. Anything accurate would have been picked up by US media way before British media. Angie certainly wouldn’t do a movie about the bitch’s dog.

    @Meme Salt was an action movie, its not usually an Oscar contender. I think Angie’s performance in Salt could at least earn her a Golden Globe nod, it was that good to me. Anyway when Angelina gets a really good role like Mighty Heart was or another decent biopic she will win Oscar gold twice and this time for Best Actress. However thats just how I feel.

  26. Canucklehead says:

    and people say Hollywood has run out of ideas…

    We probably should have seen this coming.

    ~yawn~

    and Hey @Love Angelina, are you drunk or just stupid? What does Angelina’s shitty acting have to do with democracy?

  27. Kaiser says:

    Strawberry – I read Oates’ Blonde, and I was unimpressed with her take on Marilyn, to say the least. I really hope they don’t adapt that version of MM’s life for the screen.

    Love Angie – CALM DOWN. I love AJ, just like you, but you’re making her fans look just as bad as the Pity Party Patrol!

  28. xxgatorxx says:

    All these maralyin Biopics coming out
    with stars who shouldnt be her.
    Whats the matter? Christina Hendricks busy?
    she got the best look and curves to be her
    oh yes and she can act…sigh

    http://www.examiner.com/images/blog/EXID25279/images/hendricks.jpg

  29. Cakes says:

    AJ in the top pic looks like a politicians wife. Not a good look.

  30. Tess says:

    @ simplicity

    I’d love to see a well done biopic of MM, and have to agree with simplicity about ScarJo.

    Jolie’s style is too big and broad now to allow Monroe’s demons the quiet spaces spaces that would be needed for them to properly reveal themselves.

  31. lucy2 says:

    I’d guess it’s not true at all, but if it were…WORST. CASTING. EVER.

  32. meme says:

    @LOVE ANGELINA – Yes, dear, I’m aware that roles in action pictures don’t merit Oscars. It’s called sarcasm. If St. Angie Ho was so great in A Mighty Heart and The Changeling how come she didn’t win Oscars or Golden Globes for either? Do tell.

  33. Toe says:

    Scarlett Johansson would fit perfectly for that role, not Ms Jolie

  34. Icedwavez says:

    I’m tired of Angelina Jolie getting all these rolls when she is, for me has no box office appeal to me left. No I didn’t see Salt. How the hell are they bringing her back to Wanted 2, she’s effin dead? Now Marilyn Monroe? She’s to skinny. Do you think she’ll gain the weight to achieve those lovely curves Marilyn had?Further more let’s face it, after Girl Interupted (which doesn’t seem far fetched to her personal acting crazy self) I don’t think she has the acting chops to pull it off. We need a replacement for a new female action star and STAT. End rant.

    I’ll put Christina Hendricks for Maryiln Monroe’s part. She has the look!!

  35. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “Angelina is the best effing actress Hollywood has working today”

    whoa. just WHOA.

    I realize that who you like as an actress is subjective, but talent is not. she is most certainly NOT the “best efffing actress” in Hollywood today.

    she’s not terrible, by any means, but she is definitely NOT the best actress working these days.

    I understand you’re a big fan, but when I read something like this, it’s awfully hard to take you seriously.

  36. bb says:

    @1 and 13 – pretty sure Marilyn was naturally a dirty blonde/light brownish color. Angelina’s natural color is light brown, so no problems here.

  37. mslewis says:

    This story is from a British rag. I can’t believe anybody would believe it. Oh well!!

  38. Kitten says:

    NO to AJ or ScarJo. The husky voice of ScarJo would not fit. Might as well have Lindsey “The Voice of a Million Cigarettes” Lohan instead.
    Angeline Jolie is not a terrible actress but come on, she hasn’t done anything spectacular for quite a while.
    I think she’s gorgeous and I admire her humanitarian work but Naomi Watts is far more talented and interesting to watch. (please don’t yell at me, LoveAngelina!)
    And yeah, Christina Hendricks would be a fantastic choice!

  39. Fae says:

    Ah FFS. Please, no.

    Oh, and to all those saying Scarlet Jobloodyhansson: not her either, please. She might look more the part but she’s got the acting skills of a cucumber in a bikini.

  40. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    LOL I am calm. Totally calm. However…

    @Meme yes I am well aware you were being sarcastic. I don’t know why Angelina didn’t win for A Mighty Heart, but I did enjoy Marion’s transformation in La Vie en Rose, everyone did so I am not surprised she won. I think she deserved it in fact. The real travesty that year anyway was that the Academy snubbed Angie to make room for Cate Blanchett and that crap Elizabeth sequel she made. Angie really should have been nominated. I do wanna point out that Angie was nominated in every MAJOR category that year, including the Independent spirit award (which they gave to Ellen Page) expect the Academy award and also she did win the Santa Barbabra film festival award for her performance in A Mighty Heart so its something.

    I will be honest. I really enjoyed The Channeling but I wished she had gotten nominated for A Mighty Heart. Anyway it was Kate Winslets time. The Channeling wasn’t Angie’s vehicle to Best Actress but she will find one.

    Angie is an amazing actress and let me remind all of you Angelina already has many major awards already, including an Oscar and all before she turned 30 years of age.

  41. meme says:

    @LOVE ANGELINA – St. Angie Ho hasn’t won a “major award” in years. Yes, she’s a box office draw but she’s a movie star as opposed to being an actress (think Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslett). BTW a number of best supporting actresses have won Oscars before they were 30; it’s no biggie.

  42. Mairead says:

    AJ and Clooney would be the worst casting ever for this. I mean Clooney as Sinatra? George with blue contacts is about the dumbest image I’ve conjured up this month. Hendricks has the look certainly, and Clooney could do a passable Dean Martin, but never that walking scumbag Sinatra.

    To be fair, the sources are decent The Telegraph and The Guardian are broadsheets, not tabloids, but I think the writer is pulling it out of his posterior.

    I would SO love to see a biopic of Gardner, and I think AJ could make a decent fist of it. If she can get back some of that sensuality that the Bland sucked out of her.

  43. Morgs says:

    She looks horrible as a blonde.

  44. Morgs says:

    It’s called The Changeling. For someone so obsessed that’s kind of a rookie mistake. Your game’s slipping girl.

  45. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Love Angelina, the movie was Changeling, not Channeling.

    Tatum O Neil had an Oscar before she was 20. So what’s your point?

  46. Jean says:

    @LOVE ANGELINA
    For someone as big a fan of hers as you are, you should at least get the titles of her movies right. It’s “The Changeling” not “The Channeling”. ;)

  47. Morgs says:

    As did Anna Paquin. The Piano.

  48. mila says:

    I’m Monroe’s big big fan bit but, though I don’t believe it’s true, I can actually see Jolie as Monroe. They both have a great screen presence, and I believe Jolie- if she’s not allowed to scream too much- can sometimes be a great actress.
    bite me: seems that you know nothing of Marilyn- she was far from selfish, she was known in Hollywood for her charitable work. And she was no bitch, I don’t know why you chose to be so disrespecful.

  49. original kate says:

    that photo of marilyn in the black dress is stunning – such a pretty face. she breaks my heart.

  50. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Hmmm Kate Winslett is a great actress and has been nominated several times for her work but never won until recently. Yes I know Tatum won an Academy Award young as well as Anna Paquin for the Piano, one of my fave movies BTW. However neither of those two chicks have been nominated since.

    Angelina, among many of her peers, in her age group is more successful and more awarded for her talent. You can’t say that about to many actresses in Angelina’s generation.

    P.S. I happen to be human I will make a spelling error every so often and hell I am not the only person to spell the title of that movie that way.

  51. meme says:

    @mila – indeed. i’ve read a lot of books on MM and never has she been described as selfish. she was a deeply troubled woman who tried very hard to work through her demons. her story is tragic.

  52. Moreaces says:

    Dear Hollywood.

    Please stop putting Angelina Jolie in Movies. She has stopped trying as an actress and is no longer watchable. Please put in a talented under appreciated or simply unknown Actress as these types of actors always make for a much more enjoyable movie.
    +++++
    Dear Whatever

    Please STFU

    Thanks

  53. Conando says:

    A bad idea in every conceivable way.

  54. mln says:

    She was nominated for the Changeling to make up for the lack of a nom for A Mighty Heart. If she keeps working with directors like Eastwood, Winterborne, and von Donnersmarck(although it doesn’t look like the Tourist is Oscar bait) in between blockbosters the Academy will have to give her another Oscar. If she is really doing Serena she will have a shot.

  55. lisa says:

    Have not read all the comments, but she as asked about this at the premiere and said she knew nothing about it..

    Man must every single rumor around her be put on a thread for discussion. She is not playing this part. and that should be the end of it.

    but alas it won’t. I guess there is no one else to talk about.

  56. MissyA says:

    Lindsay’s going to lose her shit when she reads this.

  57. Solveig says:

    Just seeing the picture of Angelina close to Marilyn’s makes me puke.

  58. Angel says:

    Hell No. Simply because Hollywood needs to let that poor woman (MM) rest in peace, already. Though I have to admit, the resemblance in that last photo of Angie to Monroe is almost uncanny. She’s got the demeanor and the beauty; there, at least.

  59. jzhz says:

    Halle Berry won an Oscar, too, and she can’t act either.

  60. Majosha says:

    As usual, Michael K said it best: “The last trick on earth (next to Lindsay Lohan) who should play Marilyn Monroe might play Marilyn Monroe.”

  61. BurntSalt says:

    Jean, you don’t understand. In Brangelinese or Loonese “The Channeling” is perfectly acceptable.

  62. RHONYC says:

    oh!
    you mean as a modern version of her story (i.e. romeo & juliette w/ danes & dicaprio)…and in replacement of an addiction to pills, monroe/jolie will have an addiction to crack or meth, hence the lost of her famous voluptuous size 10 bod and the reason for her now bony/emaciated figure?

    in that case, i could see that.

    . .
    __

  63. OC lady says:

    Yeah, this seems like complete BS. There’s two movies in development about Marilyn already, and Lindsay is chomping at the bit for anything Marilyn-related.

    I don’t get the Marilyn obsession at all. I have no idea why people want to emulate the tragic life of this lady. That worked out so well for Anna Nicole, right? Marilyn was known for completely changing herself, and her looks through plastic surgery. She became eye candy for the masses at the cost of her artistry and soul. She was also passed around like a f### doll in Hollywood and beyond. The sad thing is that she had real potential as a good comedienne, but she was never taken seriously. Why anyone would want to emulate her is beyond me? Because she was beautiful and an icon? That’s the epitome of shallow.

  64. albeli says:

    No, no, and NO!!!! She is incapable of evoking MM!

  65. aloha says:

    AJ has the 100% wrong body type to play MM!

    MM wasnt tall, starving to death and lanky-she was shorter, very curvacious, and sexy-cute.

    That is not AJ at all. She will ruin the memory of MM.

  66. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    By the way, Cate Blanchet is a an Oscar winner who has been nominated more than Jolie, and she is in her peer group.

    It’s fine to love an actress, but at least be realistic when it comes to her acting. She is not the best and never will be considered the best. She is no different than Halle Berry or Charlize Theron. Popular actresses that are pretty but are not great actresses.

  67. DD says:

    No offense to Angelina, but I hope they pick a voluptious woman to play Marilyn. Angelina is way too waify these days to be a good Marilyn, not too mention she looks horrible with blonde hair.

  68. truthSF says:

    Well considering they are making a movie from a dog’s point of view. They might as well have Meryl Streep playing Marilyn if she would have lived till her fifties.

    A ridiculous notion, I know. But not as ridiculous as telling a story through the perspective of her dog Maf.

  69. Maritza says:

    Cristina Hendricks would be a much better Marilyn Monroe because she is more voluptuous and she has similar features.

  70. Patrice says:

    This is the WORST IDEA I HAVE EVER HEARD of in MY LIFE. Seriously. I mean that. Ugh. Contrary to what Jolie (and many of her dillusional fans) beleieve there ARE some roles that the woman just should not try to take on. She is incredbly talented I will give her that, but Monroe is a voluptuous, breathy, golden screen legend who has more physically in common with a rock than she does Angelina Jolie!

  71. DD says:

    LA – lol @ “Academy snubbed Angie to make room for Cate Blanchett and that crap Elizabeth sequel she made”
    Are you kidding me? Cate Blanchett is an awesome actress and that was an awesome movie. I will say that if you do appreciate the art of acting, Cate has it pretty much nailed over Angelina. So Cate deserved that nomination over AJ’s trademark savage wailing scene in a Mighty Heart.

  72. Crash2GO2 says:

    Christina Hendricks. Without a doubt. AJ doesn’t have the chops or the look to play MM.

    Hey Love AJ: I’ll bet you really thought the movie was called ‘The Channeling’ didn’t you? Because you ‘misspelled’ it twice exactly the same way.

    Meryl Streep is generally recognized to be the most talented actress working today.

  73. Emily says:

    Wait till Lindsay Lohan hears about this, she’ll be crack tweeting all week about it!

  74. DetRiotgirl says:

    I am so over Angelina. I feel like she plays the same three or four characters in every movie… 1) action bad ass 2) humanitarian 3) sex pot and 4) psycho or some combination of all four. I find her movies so incredibly boring. Has anyone here ever seen an Angie flick called “beyond borders”? I would seriously put that one in my “top five worst movies I’ve ever seen” list. I don’t even know how I finished that one! Anyway, my point is, I vote no on this idea. Hollywood needs to leave Marilyn alone (Lohan, this means you too!) and let her rest in peace.

    @Love Angelina I respect that you’re an Angie super fan. I obviously don’t share your opinion. But, if you think she’s amazing that’s fine by me. I know someone must be enjoying her movies. But, I have a real problem with you calling Marilyn a “bitch”. That was classless and totally uncalled for. Marilyn had one of the most tragic stories in Hollywood. She deserves to be remembered with respect for all that she gave the world of entertainment, alongside other Hollywood stars like Jean Harlow and Clara Bow who burnt out too soon.

  75. Leek says:

    That is just a terrible idea. She is way too skinny. Everyone is way too skinny and I can’t imagine any of these women would dare put on the pounds needed to play Marilyn. I mean that as a compliment, by the way.

    There was an ad in my Marie Claire today, a Guess ad, and the model was styled like Marilyn with fish nets and the unsexy that came from the model was horrific. Fishnets makes sexy, shapely legs look hot. Hers looked like a couple of French fries wearing fishnets. I wanted to throw up, but I didn’t because I like the extra five pounds that I carry around every day.

  76. Jaxx says:

    She does not look good blonde. At all.

  77. Liana says:

    Angie certainly wouldn’t do a movie about the bitch’s dog.
    ___________________

    Wow on calling Marilyn Monroe a bitch.

  78. Dreamyvelvet says:

    Wow. Just..wow. Maybe if Angie worked on her acting skills instead of letting her hair play the main character more people would see her movies. That would be horrific if they gave her the MM role. She used to be a fairly interesting actress, Gia was great. Nowadays its Angie dressing up to play Angie. She would probably never play MM, but Michelle Williams is one of those rare actresses that inhabits a role. She has that innocence and fragility the role requires. We need more actresses like Michelle and less of the Angie crapfests.

  79. Camille says:

    Yeah, I don’t think so. I could certainly see Christina Hendricks giving it a go though. Now that would be some inspired casting.

  80. Moreaces says:

    @ Patrice
    This is the WORST IDEA I HAVE EVER HEARD of in MY LIFE. Seriously. I mean that
    ============
    Hey hon, you need to get out more,, Seriously,

  81. Leek says:

    I didn’t take time to read through all the comments yesterday but, yes, Christina Hendricks would play a lovely MM.

  82. SAM says:

    Angelina is a real blonde like her dad but it doesn’t suit her and she’s not curvy so I don’t think she could play Marilyn.I wish they would stop trying to cast Marilyn it’s really too hard to do,there’s no Marilyn out there with all the wannabees and still no Marilyn.I know they say Scarlett but her voice is deep and if I had to pick I guess it would be Christina Hendricks.Marilyn Monroe was truly beautiful and special the kind of special will never see in our day again.

  83. Bobby the K says:

    I’ve heard and read a lot of things about MM, but ‘underrated actress’ was never one of them.

  84. ChelseaD says:

    jzhz: “Halle Berry won an Oscar, too, and she can’t act either.”

    This.

    I think someone on another website put it best when they said “Angelina Jolie could possibly play one of Marilyn’s arms.”

    Also, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, and Marion Cotillard are probably the best actresses between the ages of 30 and mid-40′s. They’re not just movie stars.

  85. gretchen says:

    better hurry up and get better lynds, they’re casting for Marilyn and when you went blond that very first time and i saw you on Jay Leno i was blown away by your beauty and the fact that you looked like the beautiful MM…you’ve traveled a long way since then and not in such a good direction, but you’ve got the looks and ability to pull it off IF you get yourself together!!! something like this could be your comeback and not some hooker movie. Be smart!
