Madonna set to direct movie about her life

Nicholas Hunt/Getty Images for Billboard Magazine(LOS ANGELES) — Who better to direct a Madonna biopic than Madonna herself? The Hollywood Reporter confirms the Queen of Pop is not only co-writing the screenplay for the movie with Diablo Cody, she’ll be directing as well.

“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 tells THR.

“The focus of this film will always be music,” she adds. “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.”

The as-yet-untitled film will be produced by Amy Pascal at Universal. No word on who’ll star as Madonna, but there were rumors earlier this month that Madonna was eyeing Ozark actress Julia Garner for the role.

Madonna revealed in an Instagram Live last week that she and Cody have written more than 100 pages of the screenplay and expect the film to have a two-hour run time.

This film won’t be the first time Madonna has gotten behind the camera. Her last big screen directing effort was 2011’s period drama W.E.

So Long Summer (were you even here?)

I’ll keep this short and sweet. MOST of the great events we have in the Northwoods were cancelled this year. The days are getting shorter for sure. School is back in session (by 2020 standards). Yes it finally happened. I spotted my first tree turning red on Highway 47! The Deer in my back yard…read more »

Road Construction

I’m sure many of you in the Northwoods have noticed the repaving of Highway 47 from Rhinelander to the North. I’m amazed at how far they have gotten in just a few weeks. LOTS of trucks and lots of machinery and of course lots of delays. They are already up to Newbold in the northbound…read more »
