"Love, Marilyn"
HBO Documentary Films has acquired the U.S. rights to Liz Garbus' Telluride and TIFF entry "Love, Marilyn." Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the iconic star's death, Garbus' doc features contemporary actresses (Viola Davis, Glenn Close and Lindsay Lohan among them) reading entries from Monroe's never-before-seen diaries and letters.

The film's interviews and archival footage also feature playwright and Monroe hubby number three Arthur Miller, baseball player Joe DiMaggio (and hubby number two), author Truman Capote, feminist film scholar Molly Haskell, director Elia Kazan and many more.

Documentarian Garbus has a long-standing history of working with HBO, including 2011's "Bobby Fischer Against the World" and 2002's "The Execution of Wanda Jean." The HBO acquisition of "Love, Marilyn" is not unexpected.
