Brad Pitt making Marilyn Monroe biopic

Brad Pitt has stepped in to help director Andrew Dominik get his long-delayed Marilyn Monroe movie off the ground as the project's producer.

Naomi Watts was attached to play the iconic bombshell in Dominik's biopic Blonde, which stalled before shooting was scheduled to begin in January 2011.

However, Brad Pitt is now set to give new life to the Marilyn Monroe film by signing up to produce the movie through his Plan B production company, although he has yet to decide whether he will take on a role.

He tells 24 Frames, "We're going to get this one done."

Brad Pitt previously worked with Dominik on The Assassination of Jesse James and upcoming gangster thriller Killing Them Softly.
