Jessica Chastain Reportedly Confirms Marilyn Monroe Casting!

Jessica Chastain dresses her hair up with flowers while heading into a castle to film a scene for her new movie Crimson Peak on Wednesday (April 23) in Toronto, Canada.

Joining her on set that day were her handsome co-stars Charlie Hunnam and Tom Hiddleston, as well as Mia Wasikowska.

While greeting fans after filming was over, Jessica reportedly confirmed that she will be playing the legendary Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming movie Blonde!

The project is based on a 700-page novel written by Joyce Carol Oates and is billed as a “fictional portrait of the intricate inner life of the idolized and desired movie star.” The film will be directed by Andrew Dominik and will be produced by Brad Pitt‘s company Plan B, according to TheWrap.

    Her character in ‘The Help’ was very Marilyn like. Can’t be any worse than Michelle Williams’ version.

    She will play a talentless famewho.re who did casting couch to get roles just like her! LOL
    Let me guess, she will wear a terrible wig that will be so fake that will look like a helmet and will almost fall from the top of her head, she will keep her annoying voice, will be bland, inexpressive and overshadowed by her supporting cast as usual… very predictable!
    Another sh*tty movie and crappy performance by Jessica that will be praised by stupid critics who chose her as their ‘darling of the moment’! this movie will flop anyway just like Naomi Watts’ Diana!
