Katy Perry as Marilyn Monroe? It might happen if Harvey Weinstein has his way. The movie mogul wants the I Kissed a Girl hitmaker to make her Broadway debut as the iconic star in the theatrical adaptation of Michelle Williams’ new film My Week With Marilyn.
The producer has revealed that Katy is at the top of his casting wish list as he starts work on the ambitious production.
He told EW.com, "If the movie works, I would try to make it a musical and I would go to Katy first. I think she can play Marilyn on the Broadway stage... I think she would be amazing."
Weinstein also believes that Katy has already given the new film a big boost - even though she's not in it.
A remix of the new song The One That Got Away features in a new trailer for the movie - and has created a buzz among among Katy's fans.
Weinstein added, "Katy posted about it on her Twitter and Facebook and the next thing you know 250,000 people had downloaded the trailer in an hour."
