Angelina Jolie as Marilyn Monroe. Of Course, They Look So Alike…

The Superficial / August 16, 2010

Seen here at the London premiere of Salt today, Angelina Jolie will reportedly play Marilyn Monroe in a new biopic told through.. the eyes of her dog? Okay, sure. The Daily Telegraph reports:

Speculation over the project has been growing over the last few months. Scarlett Johansson had been linked to the Monroe role, and Mr O’Hagen had previously suggested that Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks could also play the lead role.
The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of His Friend Marilyn Monroe follows Monroe’s last two years through the eyes of her pet, Maf, a Maltese terrier which was a gift from Sinatra in 1960.

Oh, phew, the movie’s fucking nuts. For a minute there, I was concerned about seeing Marilyn Monroe look like a former heroin addict collapsing under the weight of raising six international children, but now I realize it’s being filmed in CrazyVision and everything’s all better. *puts down The Catcher in the Rye, washes off clown make-up* Haha! That was close.
