Michelle Williams has been cast to play icon Marilyn Monroe in a new movie that has recently begun shooting called 'My Week with Marilyn'.
According to The Daily Mail, the movie is based on Colin Clark's diaries about Marilyn Monroe's time in London in 1957, shooting the Laurence Olivier film 'The Prince and the Showgirl'. Clark was assigned by Olivier to keep an eye on Marilyn, and had to stay with her everyday.
