I am thrilled it is not a traditional biopic that Andrew Dominik is preparing, but a story about the idea of this woman who becomes a blonde and being devoured by the fame and the film industry. I think it’s an important story to tell in Hollywood, where the system of the studios is not so changed since then.
The film is still in pre production and is too soon to know a date for the start of filming. Jessica’s favorite movie with Marilyn? Bus stop. Jessica then spoke of her relationship with Italian cinema.
“I appreciate the Italian cinema, I hope to improve the language to understand it better. Fellini first of all and then I love Dario Argento’s Suspiria. Nicolas Refn recommended it to me, he was right. And I like Gomorra, altough I can not remember the name of the director, it would be wonderful to work with him. I find that Italian cinema is going through a good phase, The Great Beauty was a great movie this year ‘
And how Jessica’s future will be? “Full of cinema, also as a producer, like I did for The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. For artists, I find it a great responsibility to support their colleagues.
