Marilyn Fan - The Movie: A Short Film by Babsy Artner

The idea
Marilyn Monroe Lookalike Babsy Artner in Marilyn Fan - The Movie One day I came up with the idea to produce a movie by myself, not a big budget feature film, but a short film. I already had this idea in mind for years and in 2016 it was time to finally start this project. After watching movies like My week with Marilyn, Norma Jean & Marilyn, The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe and Blonde I thought, " What if Marilyn were a young woman today and she would make a new movie?". It wouldn’t be another comedy, Marilyn wanted to be taken seriously and show her talent as a dramatic actress. I guess that’s why she made Don’t bother to knock and The Misfits, two wonderful films, that highly inspired me to write Marilyn Fan - The Movie.
My intention was not to make another biographical film (there already are quite a few good biopics). I instead had the idea to write a suspenseful mystery-thriller story revolving around a character Marilyn Monroe would have loved to play.
The story
Marilyn Fan - The Movie script This is the original synopsis of Marilyn Fan:
A young woman who's a fan of Marilyn Monroe goes to a theme party dressed up like her favorite star. Something terrible happens to her that night. When she wakes up the next morning she finds herself trapped in a hopeless situation, not knowing how she got there. While she's trying to find out what has happened, she has an encounter with a mysterious stranger. He claims that he wants to help her, but can she trust him? She needs to gather up all her courage to find out the truth.
Filming
After more than a year of development and pre-production, principal photography on Marilyn Fan took place in January 2017. The movie was filmed entirely in Vienna, Austria. The film crew consisted of thirteen people, including lead actor Alexander E. Fennon. It was a pleasure to work with Alexander, he’s such a brilliant actor! His work includes Woman in Gold with Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds, and many other movies and short films.

A great idea ! The pitch makes me remember "Desperately Seeking Susan", I don't know why.

Amazing! That was completely unintentional, but you are right!
