Marilyn Monroe to be re-born at Cannes
The film was announced last year in the American Film Market, which is the second biggest film market in the US. Auditions for the film began last November and the main cast has already been finalised. However, no Bollywood name will star in the project.
Director- producer Rupesh Paul says, “ The film chronicles the life of Marilyn Monroe. It will throw light on how she became a star and her life after she achieved success and fame. It is a flashback story and its trailer will be shown at Cannes.” A huge set for the film is being constructed in Universal Studios and the shooting will start in the first week of September this year, reveals an insider.
36 MM 3D would be directed by the same director of Kamasutra 3D, Rupesh Paul. The young director is a veteran filmmaker with movies like ‘Saint Dracula 3D’ ‘Janthu’ ‘My Mother’s Laptop’ and ‘The Painter and the Virgin’. In fact, Kamasutra 3D grabbed headlines with three Academy long- list nominations including best motion picture.
