“Blonde” is a biographical drama film written and directed by Andrew Dominik and based on the 2000 novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates. Based on the life of American actress Marilyn Monroe, it stars Ana de Armas as Monroe. Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale and Julianne Nicholson appear in supporting roles.

Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Tracey Landon, Brad Pitt, and Scott Robertson serve as producers on the film, which, after a lengthy period of development that began in 2010, began production in Los Angeles, California in August 2019. It is scheduled to be released in 2022 by Netflix.
