Michelle Williams joins My Week With Marilyn

Michelle Williams is in talks to play Marilyn Monroe in the drama My Week With Marilyn.

Directed by Simon Curtis, the film will reportedly go behind the scenes during the making of 1957’s The Prince And The Showgirl, which starred Monroe and Laurence Olivier.

Scarlett Johansson and Amy Adams were considered for the role, however Williams was apparently the only actress producers met with during casting.

Filming will start in June 2010.
