There have been many actresses in the past who have attempted to take on the iconic role of Marilyn Monroe in film. Ana de Armas is the latest one to do so, and the new photos from her upcoming film "Blonde" look quite promising.

The upcoming film Blonde is set to release this fall on Netflix. It covers Marilyn Monroe's rise to fame and is based on the bestselling novel by Joyce Carol Oates. Ana de Armas shines in the trailer for the film, showing both the pain and beauty behind Marilyn's eyes. There are brand new photos released of her on the set of Blonde, and the resemblance is striking.

Ana is joined by an all-star cast, including Adrien Brody as Arthur Miller and Bobby Cannavale as Joe DiMaggio. The new photos from Blonde are set next to old photos of Marilyn with Arthur and Bobby, and there's also a photo of Ana working with a choreographer. You can also see old magazine covers of Marilyn compared to Ana's interpretation of the pictures. Ana just might be the most convincing Marilyn yet.

Ana is a brunette in her everyday life, but blonde suits her well, and with a simple change of hair (and the addition of the famous beauty mark), you can really see the resemblance she has with Marilyn. The costume designers have recreated some of Marilyn's most famous outfits remarkably well.

Director Andrew Dominik has been working on this project for 15 years, and he optioned both Naomi Watts and Jessica Chastain to play Marilyn before he finally settled on Ana. When he is asked by Vanity Fair why he chose to make a movie about Marilyn, he replied, "I saw an opportunity to describe an adult life through the lens of mistaken childhood beliefs and trauma."

The film is 166 minutes long, and you can watch it on September 23.
