The film stars Ana De Armis as the legendary actress and is directed by Andrew Dominik, who also wrote the screenplay, adapted from Joyce Carol Oates’ 2000 historical fiction novel of the same name.
Earlier this year, De Armas spoke with Weekly entertainment on Blond, telling the outlet, “It was the most intense work I’ve ever done as an actress.” She added: “It took me a year to prepare for this – research and accent and everything you can imagine. Reading material, talking to Andrew Dominik for months and getting ready to start. It was three months of non-stop filming – like, crazy schedule.” The actress continued, “It’s the greatest thing I’ve ever done. I can’t wait for it to come out. It’s a very special movie, and Andrew is a genius. He’s one of the best filmmakers I’ve ever worked with.”
De Armas then shared that she had a role in Daniel Craig’s latest James Bond film, after production on Blonde was stalled for a while. “I was preparing for Blondthen the film was pushed, and I was called for no time to die“, she explained. “I went to London and I only had 10 days to two weeks of training, which is not much for all that I had to do, which made me very nervous.”
The actress continued, “And then, on top of that, Daniel [Craig, who plays Bond] I got injured and had to postpone my shoot and go back to doing Marilyn Monroe, which is completely different from everything else – emotionally, mentally and physically – and then three months later go back to London and be a Bond girl again. All that training I did was kind of gone and forgotten! But everything went well, and I was working with the best possible team, and they did it, so I’m happy about that.” Blond is set to debut September 23 on Netflix.
