New photo of Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe released

Michelle Williams is currently filming her role as Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn , and The Daily Mail have a new snap from the movie.

The film focuses on the legendary actress's relationship with Colin Clark, an Oxford grad she met on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl .

Eddie Redmayne is playing Clark, and Kenneth Branagh will be doing his best Sir Laurence Olivier impersonation. There are also roles for Dominic Copper and a post- Potter Emma Watson.

Williams' likeness to Monroe is uncanny, and we know she's got the acting chops to handle such a potentially challenging role. Perhaps this will be her chance to finally take home a little gold man, as this is sure to attract awards-glare.

This biopic is one of many competing Monroe projects, including Andrew Dominik's Blonde , which is set to star Naomi Watts.
