Madonna is moving towards the initial stage of production for her upcoming biopic. In a new Instagram story, Madonna teases her biopic, which she co-wrote and will direct: “On location somewhere…” The 63-year-old actress wore a black outfit and a white boot with blond hair.
Madonna is willing to make her own life story for the big screen, with a script co-written with Erin Cressida Wilson. The project was first announced in 2020 with Diablo Cody as co-screenwriter; the “Juno” writer later exited. Amy Pascal is currently on board to produce.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Casting director Carmen Cuba reportedly has selected five actresses to undergo a Madonna boot camp of sorts. Oscar nominee Florence Pugh, “Inventing Anna” star Julia Garner, and “Euphoria” scene-stealer Alexa Demie all made the shortlist, along with “Mothering Sunday” breakout Odessa Young and “Mayor of Kingstown” alum Emma Laird.
