Could Jessica Chastain be the next Marilyn Monroe?

Reports are speculating that Jessica Chastain is set to play the iconic film star, Marilyn Monroe.

Jessica is believed to have landed the lead role in director Andrew Dominik’s new Marilyn Monroe drama, Blonde.

Blonde plans to go into a more in depth look of Marylin’s life and will be told from the perspective of Marilyn’s real persona, Norma Jeane Baker.

The film will also feature all of Marilyn’s famous suitors but they will all go under vague descriptions, such as the playwright (Arthur Miller), the president (John F. Kennedy) and The Ex-Athlete (Joe DiMaggio).

We think Jessica is a perfect cast choice for the role, as Jessica even looked and acted like the iconic star in the hit film, The Help.
