Say it aint so! Scarlett as Marilyn Monroe?
When I heard the news that Scarlett Johansson was to play Marilyn Monroe, I felt a churning in my intestines. Jeanne Carmen was allegedly a friend of Marilyn's however, a couple of friends of Marilyn's who I am acquainted with say this was never the case, the two were never close friends.
The sequel to my novel, A Thousand Dollars for a Kiss is called Fifty Cents for Your Soul and it is partly about Marilyn Monroe. The book flashes between present day and the glamour of 1950's Hollywood. I did extensive research for the novel and am always searching for the perfect starlet who would be able to play Marilyn in my film adaptation. I mean, in my own little fantasy world, I have Heather Graham as the main character and Shirley MacLaine as the aging movie star who recounts her friendship with Marilyn. I need an agent, a manager and a production company to make my dream come true. *sigh*
I would love to bring my own version of Marilyn to the big screen. Someday. I hope.
