Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde will "offend everyone": Australian director

The NC-17 rated biopic of Marilyn Monroe titled Blonde starring Ana de Armas has "something in it to offend everyone'" said the film's Australian director Andrew Dominik, 54. The New Zealand native

in an interview with Vulture said he was surprised the upcoming Netflix film received the NC-17 rating, which does not allow anyone under 18 to watch in theaters in any circumstance.

"On the one hand, I think if I'm given the choice, I'd rather go and see the NC-17 version of the Marilyn Monroe story. Because we know that her life was on the edge, clearly, from the way it ended. Do you want to see the warts-and-all version or do you want to see that sanitized version?,' Dominik said.

Blonde, based on the 2000 novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates about Marilyn Monroe has been a longtime project for Dominik with shooting first scheduled to start way back in January 2011.
