Recently, Madonna has been hyping that her own biopic is in the works by sharing pics and videos of her writing with Oscar-winner Diablo Cody (Juno), on Instagram.
This week, the Queen of Pop has made it official, announcing that she will be co-writing and directing the as-yet-untitled film that aims to dive deep into her five-decade career as “a musician, actress, director, author and entrepreneur” and how her impact on pop culture has transformed “our understanding of art, sexuality, feminism and the role of women in entertainment.”
“I want to convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer – a human being, trying to make her way in this world,” Madonna said in a statement. “The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell it than me. It’s essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision.”
The film will be produced by Amy Pascal (Little Women, The Post), who described the project as “an absolute labour of love.” “I have known Madonna since we made A League of Their Own together, and I can’t imagine anything more thrilling than collaborating with her and Diablo on bringing her true-life story to the big screen,” Pascal said.
And it’s far from Madonna’s first time on the big screen. Over the past three decades, she’s starred in Desperately Seeking Susan (1985), Dick Tracy (1990), A League of Their Own (1992) and Evita (1996), which earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.
There is no release date set for the upcoming film – we will keep you posted!
