Sneak Peek: Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe

Posted by & filed under SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News), Uncategorized.

The Weinstein Co. has announced a teaser website for “My Week with Marilyn” starring Michelle Williams as the icon of blonde, Kenneth Branagh as Sir Laurence Olivier, Dougray Scott as Arthur Miller, Judi Dench, Dominic Cooper, Julia Ormond, and actor and Burberry model Eddie Redmayne as Colin Clark.

The story (slated for release on November 4, 2011) has it that Colin Clark escorted Marilyn Monroe through the English countryside for a week, away from the prying eyes of the world’s media attention, and in the absence of her then husband, playwright Arthur Miller.

When Celebs.com’s Editor caught up with Michelle Williams back in April, she admitted to recent experience checking out “Twilight” with her friends:

Is there ever a desire just to take on a project that’s frivolous, or more commercial?
Williams: Sometimes. I don’t know. I don’t know what that would be. I definitely think that that stuff has it’s place and that it’s important, but I think that other people would be better at doing it than I would be, and I feel like when I work I take it very seriously, maybe too seriously, who knows? But it’s time spent away from my life, my relationships, my community, my friends, my daughter, and so, for it to be frivolous, it wouldn’t be satisfying, it just wouldn’t be worth it. So, “No.”

But, one of the most enjoyable cinematic experiences I’ve had in the past five years was going to see “Twilight” with five of my friends in an audience full of teenagers and their mothers. It was that call-and-response, there was hollering when shirts came off, it was the talking back at the screen, people standing up and clapping – I didn’t know movies could be that interactive, so, that stuff? There’s definitely a need for it.  I don’t think I’m here to—I don’t know, who knows?

Were you a hollerer?
Williams: No. [Laughs] I was just laughing at my friends who were hollering. It was pretty fun… I had no idea what I was in for.
