Madonna will do something unique among rock and pop artists -- she plans to direct a biographical movie about herself!
After teasing the project across social media, the best-selling female recording star of all-time will collaborate with screenwriter Diablo Cody on her journey from a struggling New York performer to global superstardom.
While we've seen Elton John and the surviving members of Queen have considerable input on movies telling their stories, this is the first time a recording legend has led the creative team and will have the last word on the film.
Calling the project "an absolute labor of love for me," Pascal says, "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."
It's too early for information regarding casting, a release date or even what the movie will be called.
