Directed by Andrew Dominik (“The Murder of Jesse James by the Cowardly Robert Ford”), which also adapted the novel by Joyce Carol Oates, “Blonde” was one of the most anticipated films of the year by industry insiders and consumers. A specific release date in 2022 has not yet been set.
Under development since 2010, actresses like Jessica Chastain and Naomi Watts were once associated with the project. Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux stated in an interview with Deadline that he had invited “Blonde” to appear out of competition at this year’s festival, but Netflix declined.
The Cuban actress de Armas has been a growing star in Hollywood for the past few years with memorable roles in “Blade Runner 2049” and “Knives Out,” where she received a Golden Globe nomination. The film also stars Oscar winner Adrien Brody (“The Pianist”), Emmy nominee Julianne Nicholson (HBO’s “Mare of Easttown”) and Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”).
Dominik has stated in previous interviews that the film “has very little dialogue in it”, which could have made it difficult to navigate the upcoming awards season, where the streamer would have bait candidates like the big ensemble “Don’t Look Up” from Adam McKay and the period drama “The Power of the Dog” by Jane Campion.
Netflix has an avalanche of projects waiting in the wings for price consideration, many of which are undated but expected to fall in the calendar year. This includes the debut of Halle Berry (“Bruised”), Rebecca Hall (“Passing”), Jeymes Samuel (“The Harder They Fall”) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Tick, Tick … Boom!”), As well as a passion project by Paolo Sorrentino (“Hand of God”) and a still untitled feature from director Nora Fingscheidt starring Sandra Bullock.
“Blonde” is produced by Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Tracey London, Brad Pitt and Scott Robertson.
No official future release date has been set for “Blonde”.
