My Week With Marilyn just hit theaters, but producers of the Michelle Williams vehicle are already thinking about their next move for the late blond bombshell:
They want to take it to Broadway, with Katy Perry as the lead!
Producer Harvey Weinstein tells E! he wants to develop a Broadway musical based on the movie, which stars Michelle Williams as Monroe (see trailer below).
"If the movie works, I would try to make a musical and go to [Katy Perry] first. I think she can play Marilyn on the Broadway stage... I think she would be amazing."
Why? For one, Perry has become a cheerleader of sorts for the flick.
A remix of her hit "The One That Got Away" is being used in a new trailer for My Week With Marilyn. She's also got one heck of a musical following.
"Katy posted about it on Twitter and Facebook and the next thing you know 250,000 people have downloaded the trailer in an hour," Weinstein said.
Perry also did a recreation of Monroe for a video for "Teenage Dream" that was used for a 90-second commercial for German TV show Star Force.
What do you think? Could she pull it off?!
