Directed by Andrew Dominik (“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”), who also adapted the novel by Joyce Carol Oates, “Blonde” was one of the year’s most anticipated films by industry insiders and consumers. A specific release date in 2022 has not been set yet.
In development since 2010, actresses like Jessica Chastain and Naomi Watts were once attached to the project. Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux stated in an interview with Deadline that he had invited “Blonde” to screen out-of-competition at this year’s festival, but Netflix declined.
Cuban actor de Armas has been a rising star in Hollywood for the past few years with memorable roles in “Blade Runner 2049” and “Knives Out,” for which she received a Golden Globe nomination.
