Michelle Williams to play Marilyn in new biopic?

Word on the Street – or Google News anyway – is that former Dawson’s Creek star  (and mother to the late great Heath Ledger’s gawgeous daughter Matilda) Michelle Williams is planning to tackle the role of actress Marilyn Monroe in a new biopic called Marilyn and Me, based on a book written by the late Colin Clark.
Michelle was not the first actress in the running to play the blonde bombshell, Scarlett Johansson was attached to the project for a brief period but after the actress claimed she felt no connection to the iconic star rumours fell flat. Director Simon Curtis and producer David Parfitt are now hoping to sign up Williams for the part, but the actress has yet to agree to the role.
My Week With Marilyn is the second of Clark’s books based on his time on working with Monroe during the filming of The Prince and the Showgirl with Sir Lawrence Olivier and the project has already caused some controversy among Monroe fans who have questioned the late author’s close relationship with the star during the shoot.

My Week With Marilyn is expected to commence shooting in 2010.
