Meanwhile, Andrew Dominik revealed earlier this week that he’s been waiting 12 years to bring Blonde to the big screen.
The 54-year-old filmmaker has written and directed the adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’ novel and began developing the film over a decade ago before turning down the film several times.

Andrew told IndieWire, “There were many times I’ve renounced Blonde.”
“If it breaks your heart, you want to let go of that damn thing, but it just won’t leave me alone,” he added.
De Armas plays Marilyn in the film and Andrew revealed that the actress exceeded his own expectations with her portrayal of the tragic Hollywood legend.
The director of Killing Them Softly said, “She was always better than I thought she was going to be.
“I mean, I couldn’t have shot that movie in 45 days without her, because she was the rock the whole thing had to revolve around.”
Dominik explained that he enjoyed the tight production schedule because it prevented boredom and allowed the crew to work instinctively.

He said, ‘It’s less boring. I’ve done things where you take one shot after another of a 15-minute dialogue scene and you get bored.”
Added: ‘There’s something about having to operate instinctively, especially for the crew. There are a lot of camera protocols that I try to leave out and just throw them in before they’re done, and it’s amazing how instinctive they are.”
Andrew continued, “You’re going to see a focus puller who doesn’t know what the actor is going to do, and they draw attention very well when they don’t know what’s coming.
“Then on the next take, if they know what’s coming, they’re not so good.”
