EW has confirmed that Sarandon has joined Marilyn, Lifetime’s upcoming four-hour miniseries. Based J. Randy Taraborrelli’s New York Times bestseller, The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe, the miniseries promises to reveal “what the iconic superstar succeeded in hiding from an all-too-invasive world.”

Sarandon will play Monroe’s mentally ill mother.

But after tumultuous marriages with Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller, she realizes she has the strength to stand on her own. She becomes the Face and Voice of an era, yet wants most of all to be someone’s mother and someone’s little girl. She’s the Marilyn you haven’t seen before, the artist who, by masking the truth with an image, gives her greatest performance.”

Marilyn will be written by Stephen Kronish (24) and directed by Laurie Collyer. It’s expected to premiere in 2015.
