Katy Perry is likely to get a role in the Marilyn Monroe on the Broadway stage. The co-chairman of the Weinstein Company, Harvey Weinstein has told that he wants to make a musical take on ‘My Week with Marilyn’ and has revealed that he has been considering Katy Perry to star as the iconic blond beauty.

Harvey said that if the movie works, he would try to make it a musical and I would go to Katy first. He thinks that she can play Marilyn on the Broadway stage and told she would be amazing. Also, Weinstein admitted that he is confident about the movie itself and believes that Michelle Williams will get her third Academy Award nomination for her acting in the drama.

Speaking about Michelle’s dedication, he told that she was so incredibly intense and strong and yet she was so funny practicing her waddle, practicing her wiggle and reading books like a college schoolgirl. He also sang praises to Williams’ musical talent, saying that she told him she could sing, but he heard that before. He continued that she goes she can sing and can dance too. He said that she killed it and she is so great.

‘My Week with Marilyn’ follows the interaction between Monroe and Laurence Olivier during the making of 1956’s film ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’. The film chronicles a week Monroe spent in London accompanied by her assistant Colin Clark after her husband left her during their honeymoon. The movie was directed by Simon Curtis. However, the movie also stars Eddie Redmayne, Emma Watson, Dominic Cooper, Judi Dench, Kenneth Branagh and Julia Ormond. ‘My Week with Marilyn’ has just been released in limited theatres on 23rd November 2011.
