If you were eager to see the next biopic in the life of Marilyn Monroe, you might have to wait a little longer. The Ana de Armas vehicle, Blond (based on Joyce Carol Oates’ novel of the same name) has been suspended until 2022 by Netflix, and speculation over why the release date has been pushed back has caused a number of eager audiences to reflect. to what could have happened. It does appear, however, that the content of the film is being re-evaluated by the main streamer due to its graphic sex scenes.
Based on what was collected in the report released by The Things, it appears some eagle-eyed fans of Ana de Armas have collected evidence to suggest that Netflix was “absolutely horrified” by the cut of the film made. by Andrew Dominik. “According to industry insiders, Netflix was ‘absolutely horrified’ by the sexually graphic final cut of BLONDE submitted by director Andrew Dominik. They want a new version, Dominik doesn’t want it – explains the film’s delayed release” , the Ana de Armas updates her Twitter account claims.
The account also claimed that “Netflix wanted a baity [SIC], rewards player instead of an obtuse arthouse film… let’s see what comes out of it. Another tweet posted on August 3 claimed the cut Netflix saw included “a rape scene and bloody menstrual cunnilingus,” which caught the streamer “completely off guard.” As such, it looks like the film, which was listed in post-production on IMDb at press time, may need to return to set.

Blond is a fictionalized adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’ novel, originally published in 1999. It tells the story of Marilyn Monroe from the perspective of the “inner life” of the tragic Hollywood star. Photos from the filming of the film already showed de Armas’ resemblance to the late actress, who died at the age of 36 from an overdose. Monroe’s life story was famous for its abuse, adventures, and addiction.
Director Andrew Dominik, who previously led projects such as Slowly killing them and The assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford, probably wanted to offer a new, much less conventional retelling of Monroe’s story – revealing all the gruesome aspects of her time in Hollywood’s golden age that might not have been acceptable. Netflix, however, has been a booming competitor for years and may have seen an opportunity to find prominence with a more standard biopic. While Monroe’s story sadly lives on in the catalog of Hollywood lore, honoring her memory by being honest may have been where the filmmaker came from. Either way, our interest is still piqued.
