Madonna reveals she is going to co-write and direct a movie on her own life.
The 62-year-old Madonna, whose four-decade career as a singer, actress, religion and other traditional taboos, will direct the biopic of her own.
She will also co-write, with Diablo Cody who won an Oscar for the screenplay of coming-of-age dramedy “Juno” (2007).
Moreover, the singer said, “She wants the film to convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artiste, a musician, a dancer – a human being, trying to make her way in this world.”
“The focus of this film will always be music,” said the singer in a statement. “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.”
Amy Pascal, the former Sony Pictures chief, will produce the 1992 film co-starring Madonna.
Pascal said, “This movie is an absolute labor of love for me.” “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 with Donna (Langley) and our partners at Universal.”
Earlier, Madonna had directed the 2008 British drama Filth and Wisdom and the 2011 period drama W.E., with Abbie Corning and Andrea Riseborough.
