Uniquely Qualified Director to Shoot Madonna Movie


A new movie is being made, based on the "untold true story of Madonna."

And the director knows a little something about the topic. It's Madonna herself.

Madonna is co-writing the screenplay with Oscar winner Diablo Cody.

“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,” said Madonna. “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.”

No word yet on who will play Madonna in the big screen biopic.

Madonna’s success on the big screen includes starring roles in films 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.

A release date for the project was not included in the announcement from Universal Pictures
