I am secretly terrifyed to see what comes of this Madonna biopic. I’m afraid since Madge herself is writing and producing it will contain too much sugar coating. But one decision I can get behind is this casting.
The Inventing Anna star Julia Garner has been chosen to play the material girl in what has the potential to be an epic chronicling of one of musics’ biggest names.
The seven-time Grammy-winning singer, 63, is also attached to the Universal Pictures project as co-screenwriter, producer and director.
Madonna announced in October last year — after the premiere of her Madame X concert documentary on Paramount+ — that she was almost done writing the script.
“Grateful for the success of Madame ?, that my script is almost finished, and for the support of my beautiful children!” the mother of six captioned a series of selfies on Instagram showing her sitting in front of her typed screenplay.
