    Directed by Andrew Dominik and based on Joyce Carol Oates’ 2000 novel of the same nameBlonde will be the first Netflix original to be given an NC-17 rating for “some sexual content” (and reportedly a sexual assault scene) by the Motion Picture Association. “It’s a demanding movie,” Dominik said of the rating. “If the audience doesn’t like it, that’s the fucking audience’s problem. It’s not running for public office. It’s an NC-17 movie about Marilyn Monroe, it’s kind of what you want, right? I want to go and see the NC-17 version of the Marilyn Monroe story.”

    Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale, and Julianne Nicholson also star in Blonde, while Nick Cave and Warren Ellis provided the soundtrack. de Armas last co-starred in the James Bond film No Time to Dieas well as the erotic thriller Deep Water and the espionage flick The Gray Man
