Filmmakers of New Feature Film "Goodnight Marilyn" Set to Announce Cold Case Reopening of Marilyn Monroe's Death and Worldwide Search for Actress to Play Legendary Icon

Press Conference to Be Held on June 1, 2015 -- Marilyn's 89th Birthday at Her Hangout, Formosa Cafe in West Hollywood

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - Nearly fifty-three years after her tragic death, Marilyn Monroe is more popular than ever and the truth behind her untimely passing remains a fascinating mystery. Goodnight Marilyn, a feature film set to be directed by Drew Ann Rosenberg, delves deep into the days leading up to the star's demise.

"Goodnight Marilyn isn't another biopic in that we've created a unique perspective on the events of the last three days of Marilyn's life from a private detective's point of view," says producer Nina Boski. "The characters have ambition and are engaged in reinventing their lives. Our film pleads the question, 'How far would one go to make their dreams come true?'"

This year, Boski's Bungalow 42 Productions, two-time Emmy nominated casting director Rene Haynes (Twilight: New Moon & Eclipse) and casting executive Michael Hothorn (Mr. & Mrs. Smith) ignited a global search for the perfect actress to play the legendary icon and are still continuing their hunt. Those looking for the chance to portray the blonde beauty should visit www.GoodnightMarilyn.com.

Nina Boski will also be working with a real-life investigation team as they reopen the cold case of Marilyn Monroe's death. This includes Dr. Cyril Wecht (one of the world's most renowned forensic pathologists), Dr. Reef Karim (prominent psychiatrist), Dr. Scott Bonn (criminologist & suicide expert), Ricky Jones (government & law), Owen "Skip" McOmber (ex-LAPD homicide), Darrell Connerton (ex-CIA) and more!

The press conference will be at Formosa Cafe on 6/1 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and will feature a variety of highlights:

  • Introduction of the real-life investigation team and their goals in re-examining the evidence.

  • Announcement of the Goodnight Marilyn film and crew.

  • Details of the worldwide search.

  • Celebration of Marilyn's 89th birthday with featured "Marilyns".
