The film will follow the life of Madonna, with the singer as writer and director of the film, working alongside Oscar-winning  screen writer, Diablo Cody.

In a statement in 2020 when the film was first announced Madonna said, “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…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.”

Julia is best known for her roles in Inventing Anna and OZARK and now that they say it, we can see a striking resemblance to the queen of pop!
