After years of rumours and whispers, a biopic about the iconic Madonna is finally underway.
The 'Queen of Pop' is believed to be directing and producing the film about her life, decades-long career, and journey as an artist, along with a team that includes producer Amy Pascal (Little Women, Spider-Man: Homecoming).
In a statement about the production, the Holiday singer has said that it was important that she be integral in telling her own story for the screen.
'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,' she said in a statement.
'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.'
