Madonna biopic reportedly scrapped after singer embarks on world tour

According to sources for Variety, a previously-announced biopic centred on Madonna's life has gone out of development at Universal Pictures. The 4 Minutes singer was set to direct the film herself, but last week announced a world tour allegedly preventing her from completing the task. First announced in 2020, the as-yet-untitled biopic has been in development through to the end of 2022. Madonna reportedly drafted two scripts covering swaths of her creative and personal life - first with Diablo Cody, then with Erin Cressida Wilson.
