‘Fragments’ Documentary Planned

Fragments, the 2010 collection of Marilyn’s personal writings, is to be the subject of a documentary, to be released on the 50th anniversary of Monroe’s death, in August 2012.

StudioCanal has acquired worldwide rights to upcoming documentary “Fragments,” based on the eponymous book of Marilyn Monroe’s writings, diaries, poems and letters.

Liz Garbus, producer and director of Sundance 2011 hit “Bobby Fisher Against the World,” will direct. Stanley Buchtal, also a producer on “Bobby Fisher,” produces.

Exploring a “magical, unknown Marilyn,” Garbus said, “Fragments” went into production July 5…

…Some of the world’s best-known actresses will read Monroe’s poems and letters. The movie will fuse documentary interviews, archive material — including never-seen photos and footage — live action, graphics, 3D creations and scripted elements.

Also, Studiocanal’s muscle as one of the Europe’s strongest sales agents can help “Fragments” reach far wider audiences.

“I am personally a big fan of Liz’s immense gift as a director and we are very excited about the involvement of so many talented people in making this movie a big theatrical event for us in 2012,” said Harold Van Lier, Studiocanal exec veep, of international sales.’
