Marilyn Monroe's Biopic to Re-Examine Her Death


Marilyn Monroe's Biopic to Re-Examine Her Death


Controversial coroner Lionel Grandison's story that he was forced to falsify the star's death certificate will be included in 'Marilyn'.

The circumstances surrounding Marilyn Monroe's suicide is set to be re-examined on the big screen in a new film based on the controversial coroner who was allegedly forced to falsify the star's death certificate.

Bosses at Hollywood production company FilmEngine will question cause of the actress' August, 1962 death from an overdose of barbiturates, amid claims she was the victim of a possible homicide.

Executives at the firm have now optioned the life rights of former deputy Los Angeles coroner Lionel Grandison - who perpetuated the murder mystery by claiming he was forced to classify her death as a "probable suicide", reports Daily Variety. He also alleges he was briefly in possession of Monroe's private diary, which has never been found.

The new film, entitled "Marilyn", will bring Grandison's story to the big screen for the first time since he came forward with the claims.
