Universal Pictures revealed Tuesday (Sept. 15) that the studio is developing a film based on the life of Madonna, who will be directing it.
The 62-year-old superstar is also co-writing the screenplay with Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno, Jennifer’s Body), which the two discussed at length during an Instagram Live Sept. 10. Three-time Oscar-nominated producer Amy Pascal (Little Women, The Post, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) will produce the feature alongside the singer, with Madonna's associate Sara Zambreno and manager Guy Oseary as executive producers.
"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 press release. "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."
