Madonna Is Directing a Biopic About Madonna

Life is a mystery no longer. As announced on Tuesday, Madonna has plans to co-write and direct a movie about 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.”

Co-written by Diablo Cody and produced by Amy Pascal, the untitled project will set up shop at Universal Pictures.

While the official announcement about the film came Tuesday, Madonna had been teasing the project for weeks on social media. During an Instagram Live video last week with Cody, in fact, the singer and actress revealed the planned film will focus on a few key periods in her life—including Madonna’s ascent in 1980s New York, her success with the 1989 single “Like a Prayer,” and her work on the film Evita. Of the script, Madonna said, it will be “about my struggle as an artist trying to survive in a man’s world as a woman, and really just the journey.”

Madonna has appeared in a number of films in her career—including 1992’s A League of Their Own, which is where she and Pascal first connected—but only directed two features: the little-seen 2008 British film Filth and Wisdom and the widely panned 2011 flop W.E., which starred Abbie Cornish, Andrea Riseborough, James D’Arcy, and a young up and comer named Oscar Isaac.

“I mean, I’d like to make more films. I really enjoy the process,” Madonna said during press for W.E. in 2011. “As exhausting and daunting as it was—physically, emotionally, in every way you could imagine, I did… I do love the art of film, and I would love to have the ability and the chance to make another one.” Nine years later, her wish has been granted.
