Madonna’s biopic has to wait.
According to sources, Madonna's focus is presently on her tour, but she is committed to making a film about herself one day. The overseas tour sold out shows in London, Paris, New York, and other cities in minutes making Madonna the highest-grossing female touring artist of all time with 600,000 tickets sold on the first day.
Despite being announced in 2020, the film's development continued until the end of 2022. Madonna collaborated on two script drafts that surrounded a wide range of her inventive and personal situations. An earlier draft was co-written by Oscar winner Diablo Cody (their writing sessions were widely disseminated on social media). Later Erin Cressida Wilson who has worked on projects "Secretary", and "The Girl on the Train" attempted again.
Variety broke the news in June that Emmy and Golden Globe winner Julia Garner had been cast in the role of the pop icon. The performer was chosen after a weeks-long bake-off among a group of talented young actors who did attend dancing and singing training course, including Florence Pugh, "Euphoria" star Alexa Demie, Odessa Young, and Bebe Rexha. According to rumors, Julia Fox was thought to play the role of Madonna's best friend, Debi Mazar.
Donna Langley, Chairman of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, managed to bring the project to the production company with producer Amy Pascal, whose titular production company is based on the Uni lot. Executive producers were Sara Zambreno and Guy Oseary, longtime Madonna manager. The collaborative effort would have signified a reunion for Madonna and Pascal, who previously partnered on the 1992 baseball classic "A League of Their Own."
On Jan. 17, the Grammy winner revealed her "Celebration Tour" in a now-viral Instagram video. Madonna sat down at a table with other A-listers to share the big news in the black-and-white video. DJ Diplo, actor Jack Black, Amy Schumer, Lil Wayne, director Judd Apatow, Larry Owens, Bob the Drag Queen, Kate Berlant, Hacks star Meg Stalter, and Eric Andre were among those in attendance.
Madonna then took to Instagram on January 22 to thank her fans for their support. In a video, she expressed appreciation for her fans for their support and affection over the last few days. She also stated that she doesn't take all of this for granted and recognizes herself to be the luckiest girl in the world, and she is immensely thankful for all of the support. Finally, the singer stated that she can't wait to put on the show and spend time with all of her fans.
Madonna earlier noted that she wished the docudrama would portray the amazing journey that life has led her on as an artist, a musician, a performer - a human being attempting to make her way through this world. The music will always be the core of this film as she says that music and art have kept her going and alive. Numerous inspiring stories need to be told, and who better to tell them than she? Madonna stated that sharing the roller coaster experience of her life with her speech and foresight is essential. The Queen of Pop wrote an extensive script for the biopic, stating previously that she wanted to make an "extraordinary" film.
Madonna stated in July that she has had an incredible life and that she must make an exceptional film, adding that it was also a surprise attack because many individuals were attempting to make films about her. Last but not least, the singer claimed that the majority of them are chauvinistic men so she has decided to place her foot in the door and asserts that no one else will tell her story but her.
