Madonna Biopic Canceled

Posted January 24, 2023 by with 2 comments

We all knew it was going to be awful (hello, she wrote it and was going to direct it—a recipe for disaster), so this is very good news. If a biopic has to be made while she’s still alive (and it doesn’t), at least have a reputable and established filmmaker outside of her inner circle write and direct it. I expect her upcoming tour (or at least portions of it) will be canceled, too, given how unstable she seems in her Instagram antics. As a fan, I of course hope I’m wrong. Via Variety:

The anticipated biopic of music legend Madonna is taking an indefinite holiday. The project, which the icon was going to direct herself, is no longer in development at Universal Pictures, multiple sources told Variety.

Speculation over the fate of the movie began instantly after Madonna announced a career-spanning world tour last week — one that sold out shows in New York, London, Paris and other cities in minutes. Insiders familiar with Madonna said her sole focus is the tour, but she remains committed to making a film about her life one day.
