Hollywood to produce a movie on Marilyn Monroe


Marilyn Monroe, who was, born on June 1st, 1926 and died on August 5th, 1962, is a popular name in the entertainment world as Hollywood bombshell. Recently, first information about the movie of Marilyn Monroe’s last two years has been officially revealed. At the Edinburgh Book Festival on August 15th, 2010 author Andrew O’Hagan claimed that Angelina Jolie will take over the role Marilyn Monroe. At first, producers wondered whether Scarlett Johansson or Christina Hendricks would play Monroe in the new film, but later Jolie was selected as the best choice.


The film about Marilyn Monroe will be based on two books of Andrew O’Hagan including “And Of His Friend Marilyn Monroe” and “The Life And Opinions Of Maf The Dog”. In addition to Angelina, the film stars George Clooney who performs as Monroe’s close friend Frank Sinatra. According to Andrew O’Hagan, the movie will be filmed soon.

O’Hagan’s novel is about Monroe’s last two years before her death in 1962 through the eye of her pet terrier Maf. Singer Sinatra gave Maf to Monroe in 1960. When Monroe received the dog from Sinatra, she called it Mafia before the lovely name Maf. Maf will tell the story of Marilyn in her last two years including the meetings with former U.S. President John F. Kennedy. The content of the book was written based on Maf’s attitude, so it consists of the dog’s perspective such as “She was an artist to her fingertips … a strange and unhappy creature, but at the same she had more comedy to her than anybody I would over know. More comedy and more art.”
