Aussie actress Naomi Watts will be starring in a new film based on Marilyn Monroes life, titled Blond – the film will be based on the book of the same name. 
Production, which will start January of next year will detail the beginnings and endings of the blond bombshells controversial life. Director Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James) says he wants to tell the story of  “the great female icon of the 20th century”.

“For men, she is an object of sexual desire who is desperately in need of rescue. For women, she embodies all the injustices visited upon the feminine – a sister, a Cinderella, consigned to live among the ashes,” he said.

“I want to tell the story of Norma Jeane as a central figure in a fairy-tale; an orphan child lost in the woods of Hollywood, being consumed by that great icon.”
Watts, 41, has been nominated for Oscar in her role as a CIA agent in the drama 21Grams and has featured in other such films as King Kong, The Ring and Mulholland Drive.
