We don’tis never better served than by oneself. In 2017, Universal Studios announced a biopic on Madonna, based on a script by Elyse Hollander and titled Blond Ambition, in reference to the name of one of his cult world tours. Furious, the first concerned did not hesitate to publicly downgrade the project, affirming that “no one knows what she knows and what she has seen“. Three years later, the singer takes matters into her own hands, still alongside Universal, with an autobiographical film that she co-wrote with screenwriter Diablo Cody, who won an Oscar for her work on Juno in 2008. Behind the camera, c he is also the pop icon who will be responsible for directing the feature film.
In a statement, she explains: “The main subject of the film will always be music. Music kept me from giving up and art kept me alive. There are so many inspiring stories that have never been told, and who better than me to share them? It is essential to come back on the roller coaster that is my life with my voice and my vision.“
As for the interpreter who will play the star during his younger years, many names are starting to circulate. However, rumors run about that of Julia Garner, seen in the series Ozark or the movie The Assistant. On Instagram, the singer recently followed the actress between a few writing sessions that she documents in video on her personal account:
Madonna’s film career has seen its ups and downs. In 1997, she won the Golden Globe for Best Actress for Alan Parker’s Evita, a success that she unfortunately never found as an actress in the following years. This personal biopic will mark her third achievement after Obscenity and Virtue, in 2008, and WE in 2011, for which she won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song with Masterpiece.
