New stills from the upcoming movie “My Week with Marilyn” show Michelle Williams doing her best Marilyn Monroe.
In a stylized photo released to We Are Movie Geeks shows Williams as the iconic actress, sashaying in sunglasses through a pack of paparazzi. Eddie Redmayne (as Colin Clark) and Dougray Scott (as Arthur Miller) are also pictured.
“My Week with Marilyn” is based on the diary of British studio assistant Colin Clark, who spent time with the star during the filming of “The Prince and the Showgirl” in 1956.
In addition to Williams, Redmayne and Scott, Kenneth Branagh stars as Sir Laurence Olivier, Emma Watson plays a wardrobe assistant, and Julia Ormond portrays Vivien Leigh.
The drama, directed by Simon Curtis, will be released November 4 but debuts at the New York Film Festival on October 9.
Does Michelle Williams make a convincing Marilyn? Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams and Kate Hudson were also reportedly considered for the role.
