The previously announced biopic centering on Madonna’s life was in development at Universal Pictures. The singer was to direct the film herself.

However, according to several Variety sources, since she announced a major world tour for her 40-year career last week, her film project is now on hold when it seemed well advanced.

First confirmed in 2020, the as-yet-untitled biopic has been in development until the end of 2022. Madonna is said to have penned two scripts – first with Diablo Cody, then with Erin Cressida Wilson.

A song and dance bootcamp was held to decide which of Florence Pugh, Alexa Demie, Odessa Young, Bebe Rexha and Julia Garner would portray the pop icon. Julia Garner came out on top.

Universal Filmed Entertainment Group President Donna Langley bought the project, while Amy Pascal was signed on to produce. Madonna last worked with Amy Pascal on the 1982 basketball film A League of Their Own. Sara Zambreno and Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary are set to serve as executive producers.

Before embarking on her biopic, Madonna directed the British comedy-drama Dirt and wisdom in 2008 and the historical romance WE in 2011. No timeline has been released to continue development or begin production on Madonna’s biopic.

The Material Girl seems in any case totally focused on her tour. Concert tickets in Montreal, New York, London, Paris and other cities would have sold out in minutes.
