Madonna Will Direct Her Own Biopic
So technically it's an autobiopic
Published Sep 15, 2020Although it's usually a social faux pas to talk about working on your screenplay, Madonna recently did just that — revealing that she was penning a film alongside Juno scribe Diablo Cody. Not only has the project moved to the next phase of development, but Madonna has managed to hire a big-name director: herself.
"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."
In addition to co-writing and directing, Madonna will also produce the film alongside Amy Pascal. Details of its story are not yet confirmed, although we can expect to learn more soon.
