Madge is directing her biopic - that’s right!

Madge has signed a deal with universal for the biopic she’s been writing with Diablo and is apparently set to direct it! It’s also going to be co-produced with Amy Pascal, she of Little Women.

Will this be a mess or an Oscar contender? Who should play young Madge?

Can you imagine being directed by her to play her? Worst experience an actor could have. R4 I have a feeling Madge decided to do this in response to that movie..I think it really rattled her.

I really liked W.E., for what’s worth. It wasn’t a completely successful movie but it was a fine attempt. I especially loved the 1990s scenes with the moneyed New Yorkers looking so chic in black with matte brown makeup.

Diablo: Madge, who should play you?

Madge: the girl who did Troy, is her baby sister available?

God, she's really killing her legacy. I was a fan for a long time, even when her newer music stopped appealing to me (around the Music/American Life era). And now, it's like she doesn't even want any fans.

Diablo: Fine.

The Breakfast Club film should have been it as far as this stuff goes.

Madonna has too much money, she's bored, and has nothing to do. So here we are...

I'm sure Cody will do her best to make this work, but M will still throw a monkey wrench into the mix to muck it all up. The ego is incomparable.

R9, Madge isn’t investing in you for her legacy..the only thing she wants from you is your money at her shows. The stupid shit she does is to keep her name alive for the future inhabitants of the planet once she’s old and once she’s gone.

She’s investing in the future 30+ years from now when the only story will be according to her, based on what’s on celluloid and not based on DL commentary.

50 years from now, they’ll look at images of her at 62 and say, look how young she looked even then, and no one will contest it.

Diablo Cody, writer of Ricki and the Flash, is a hack. She got lucky with the vastly overrated Juno.

by Anonymousreply 22Last Tuesday at 4:15 PM

Is there any way that a narcissist like Madge doesn’t re-write history in telling this (her own) story? She should be writing this with someone else who was there like her brother. Has she really never made up with him? This is her opportunity to get proper revenge on him by totally minimizing his influence on her career and success haha.

by Anonymousreply 23Last Tuesday at 4:31 PM

Diablo Cody is a great beneficiary of that gross era in Hollywood when actresses were cast based on maxim magazine spreads and a writer could be discovered by a pervy manager looking up “pussy” online (her stripper diary popped up). Both madonna and brooke busey owe their careers to sex.

R14, "Madonna & The Breakfast Club" was a 2018 documentary on Madonna and her first band. It had re-enactments with Jamie Auld, who had an uncanny resemblance to young Madonna.

Lourdes could play Madonna dying her obviously brunette hair blonde until age 26 or so, the year when it began going gray and falling out--from which point forward Vagina can then portray herself through the film's end.

There is absolutely no point of this if it’s not rated R. I hope TPTB realize that. This is one of those things that needs to be done right or not at all.

Even if Madonna were a brilliant filmmaker - which she obviously isn’t - this would be an obviously, glaringly inadvisable undertaking. She’s setting herself up to make a fool of herself - again. This one is sure to continue her historic hot streak of Razzies.

Break out the LucyMAME filters.

by Anonymousreply 64Last Wednesday at 8:11 PM

I wonder if she'll direct the scene of herself laughing when she hears one of her staff might have been drugged and gang raped? I sometimes wonder, in this cancel-heavy culture we have now, why no one on Twitter has brought that up and posted it around with the hashtag #madonnaisoverparty, or similar. And thinking about it now, perhaps that's the real sign of her irrelevance? That no one is bothering to even try and cancel her?

She has led an interesting life in many ways, and in someone else's hands, this could potentially be good. The early New York years are particularly interesting, especially considering the scene she was a part of. But I just don't think this is going to turn out well at all.

by Anonymousreply 65Last Wednesday at 8:12 PM

Madonna would turn it around r65 by bringing up the fact that she was raped herself as she has claimed.

by Anonymousreply 66Last Wednesday at 8:16 PM

100% agreed R60. An autobiography written by Madonna (and editorial support staff) which was brutally honest, spared nobody and where she wasn't afraid to show herself in a bad light or a situation for exactly what it was in the pursuit of keeping it factual. She is far too rich and famous to have to worry about any outfall.

THAT would be something I would buy and read and I suspect it would be a massive success.

by Anonymousreply 67Last Wednesday at 9:12 PM

Do you honestly think Madonna reflects much on when she was bad (girl)? She's a means to an end person. If she gets what she wants, then all is good.

by Anonymousreply 68Last Wednesday at 9:44 PM

The whole movie is going to be about how she fought against sexism and misogyny and "dared to show the world the fantasies from the point of view of a woman".

It will be two hours of Madonna patting herself on the back.

I think the movie will never happen. She’ll die in a freak accident. It just doesn’t feel right or fated.

It seems like this is now the new thing or at least it will be after Madonna does it...celebs making movies about their lives especially while they’re still alive. We’ve seen Rocketman, TLC movie, Bobby Brown movie, Wendy Williams upcoming movie. We’ve seen the success of Mama Mia, Notorious, Straight outta Compton, Bohemmian Rhapsody, Aaliyah movie, Whitney movie.

I think more and more celebs will start making movies of their lives while they’re still alive as a means to make the career even longer. And then they’ll all end up with a podcast...that’s the the last step.

R76 in the sense that a celebrity who is still somewhat at the top (I know, she’s far from the heights of blonde ambition) is doing this. What’s next, the Taylor Swift or Beyoncé autobiopic? Every celeb will want to tell their story on the big screen now. It used to be a thing to do when your career was ovaaaa!

Madge, as much as we hate on her and hate on her career being over, she still has more music. It can only mean that since the Elton movie, it is now cool and sensible for celebs who still have more years, health. fame and power to tell their story on screen.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they start making sequels of their life story. This could be very lucrative.
