Madonna is all set to direct and co-write a movie telling the story of her life and career as one of the biggest pop stars in the world.
The singer recently announced that she’s busy working on her biopic along with Oscar-winner Diablo Cody.
The film will tell the story of Madonna's growth into a chart topping juggernaut and style icon with the staying power to become the all-time bestselling female artist - 335 million records worldwide - and the highest grossing solo touring numbers ever.
"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 says 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."
Universal Pictures is handling the untitled film, under the guidance of filmed entertainment group chair Donna Langley and producer Amy Pascal. Regarding the project, Langley said: "With her singular gift of creating art that is as accessible as it is boundary-pushing, she has shaped our culture in a way very few others have." And Pascal added: "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 and our partners at Universal."
