Netflix’s Marilyn Monroe Biopic ‘Blonde’ With Ana de Armas Moves to 2022 (EXCLUSIVE) https://t.co/jQlLGfIWAy— Variety (@Variety) July 28, 2021
- Netflix has moved the Andrew Dominik film Blonde to an unspecified date in 2022.
- The film, a fictionalized telling of Marilyn Monroe's life starring Ana de Armas, was widely expected to be an awards contender, but didn't appear on any of the upcoming festival lineups. Cannes had invited Netflix to premiere the film out of competition, but Netflix declined.
- The director has stated in past interviews that the film was very light on dialogue, potentially making it more difficult to market than other films.
- Netflix has a ton of other awards-friendly releases coming this fall, including Don't Look Up, The Power of the Dog, Passing, and Tick, Tick... Boom.
