According to the report by Deadline, A biopic on the life of Marilyn Monroe is presently being developed by Lifetime. Most likely with the title "Marilyn," the film comes from Asylum Entertainment.

"Marilyn" was written by Stephen Kronish based on the book "The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe" which was penned down by J. Randy Taraborrelli. Laurie Collyer will be directing the film.

Marilyn died on Aug 5, 1962. Her death shrouded with mystery led to endless speculations.

Was it a suicide or murder?

As explained by Metro, the coroner’s report stated it as a probable suicide using barbiturates or depressants.

The report stated “Miss Monroe has suffered from psychiatric disturbance for a long time. On more than one occasion when disappointed or depressed, she has made a suicide attempt. On these occasions, she had been rescued. It is our opinion the same pattern was repeated except for the rescue.”

There had been lot of arguments against this theory and Marilyn’s death was believed to be a complete cover up.

According to it, no traces of pills had been found in her stomach. Police also couldn’t find any alcohol related proofs. Therefore many believe fatal dose of barbiturates was administered in her body.

And the murder theory stated that Marilyn was supposed to be in relationships with both Kennedy brothers. Once the relationships turned sour between them, allegedly threatened to go public with the secret affair.

There are also reports suggesting Marilyn was killed by Mafia.

Last but not the least, according to another speculation Marilyn got killed by her psychiatrist, Dr. Greenson.
