Universal Pictures announced Tuesday that it is developing a biopic that tells the untold true story of Madonna‘s life.
Madonna plans to direct the movie and is co-writing the original screenplay with Academy award winner Diablo Cody.
The project will be produced by multiple Academy award nominee Amy Pascal for her Universal-based Pascal Pictures.
“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,” said Madonna.
The focus of this film will always be music, according to one of the world’s most influential icons.
“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,” she added. “It’s essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision.”
Madonna, over an indelible five-decade career, has had a groundbreaking impact as a musician, actress, director, author and entrepreneur.
