You can cross out the film “Blonde” with Ana de Armas from potential candidates for the Oscars since the biopic about Marilyn Monroe was postponed to 2022. Netflix will announce a release date later.
The reason for this is that the film does not incline to dialogue like other Netflix projects this year, including Don’t Look Up and The Power of the Dog, so it will have little chance in this award season.
It is directed by Andrew Dominic ( How Cowardly Robert Ford Killed Jesse James ), who also authored a screenplay adaptation based on the book of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates.
The picture has been in development since 2010, and over the years, different actresses have been attached to it, but in the end, the role of the cult star went to Ana de Armas. It also became known earlier that the director of the Cannes Film Festival, Thierry Fremaud, offered Netflix to participate in this year’s film screening, but the streaming refused.
