The story

A young woman who's a fan of Marilyn Monroe goes to a theme party dressed up like her favorite star. Something terrible happens to her that night. When she wakes up the next morning she finds herself trapped in a hopeless situation, not knowing how she got there. While she's trying to find out what has happened, she has an encounter with a mysterious stranger. He claims that he wants to help her, but can she trust him?
She needs to gather up all her courage to find out the truth.

The idea

I had the idea to make Marilyn Fan - The Movie after watching films like My week with Marilyn, Norma Jean & Marilyn and Blonde. Being an actress and a Marilyn Monroe look-alike for more than ten years I thought, “What if Marilyn would still be alive today - at the age of 36 - and she’d make a new movie?”. It wouldn’t be another comedy, she always wanted to act in serious films. I guess that’s why she made Don’t bother to knock and The Misfits, two wonderful films, that highly inspired me to write Marilyn Fan - The Movie. Marilyn even founded her own production company, Marilyn Monroe Productions, to get the chance to play more dramatic parts.

There are some very good biographical films, so my intention was not to make another movie about Marilyn Monroe. I instead came up with the idea to write a suspenseful story she’d be excited about and to create a character Marilyn would love to play if she still would be with us.

"I want to entertain people, but also give the audience something to be inspired by."
