Madonna is one of the biggest artists in history and it takes a big name to direct the film that takes a look at her iconic life. Who bigger than the artist herself? The “Material Girl” has been in the business since the 80’s when she became a trendsetting star who became an author, actor, entrepreneur, and more.

The biopic is still to be named, but has been confirmed to be produced by Madonna and three-time Academy Award-nominee Amy Pascal (Little Women, The Post). Sara Zambreno and Madonna’s longtime manager, Guy Oseary, are on board as executive producers as well.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly it was stated, “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 said of the film 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.”

As a filmmaker and actress, Madonna has starred in movies like Desperately Seeking Susan, Dick Tracy, A League of Their Own, and her celebrated documentary Truth or Dare, while she also directed the romantic drama W./E. in 2011.
