Naomi Watts is to star as Marilyn Monroe, according to reports, in an "imagined memoir" of the Hollywood icon's life.

The King Kong actress is to play the screen beauty in Blonde, a film adaptation of the novel by Joyce Carol Oates, according to New Zealand movie blog Stuff.com.

The movie will not be a straight biopic but is described as an "imagined memoir" about Marilyn, and apparently plays with history and delves into the star's mind as Oates imagined it to be.

Blonde is reportedly set to start filming in January, despite another Marilyn movie in the works.

Michelle Williams is starring as the actress in My Week With Marilyn, the Weinstein Company movie currently filming in London.

It tells the behind-the-scenes story of the time while Marilyn was filming The Prince And The Showgirl opposite Laurence Olivier, and is based on the diary of Colin Clark who worked as Olivier's assistant on the film.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

You are being overly critical of your best friend or romantic partner. Even if you think their plans are ill founded, you should keep such thoughts to yourself. Undermining a person's enthusiasm will only create resentment. If you're tired of being implicated in your loved one's harebrained schemes, have a heart to heart discussion. A temporary separation can help each of you figure out what you want from your relationship. It may be time for you to seek a more practical companion.More
