A 3D film to chronicle the Hollywood actress’ story; its trailer will be released in Cannes

Filmmaker Rupesh Paul’s next project is a 3D film. Titled 36MM 3D, the film is a biopic of Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe. Paul is going to direct and produce the film; what’s more, its trailer will be released at Cannes this year.

The film was announced last year in the American Film Market, which is the second biggest film market in the US. Auditions for the film began last November and the main cast has already been finalised. However, no Bollywood name will star in the project.

Director-producer Rupesh Paul says, “The film chronicles the life of Marilyn Monroe. It will throw light on how she became a star and her life after she achieved success and fame. It is a flashback story and its trailer will be shown at Cannes.”

It seems that a huge set for the film is being constructed in Universal Studios and the shooting will start in the first week of September this year.
