Universal has picked up the rights to produce a brand new Madonna biopic. It is titled Blond Ambition written by Elyse Hollander.
The Hollywood Reporter says the story will be set in the early 1980’s as Madonna Louise Ciccone works on her first album while also dealing with a burgeoning love life and the first hints of fame.
Madonna moved to New York from Michigan in 1978 to pursue dance but found more success singing and writing songs. After achieving some success with a few dance singles, she began work on her debut album, Madonna, which was released in 1983. The album yielded hits “Holiday,” “Borderline” and “Lucky Star.”
The biopic will be produced by Michael DeLuca, who produced Fifty Shades of Grey, along with Brett Ratner and John Zaozirny.
Madge herself took to Instagram to say she did not approve of the movie. She wrote: “Nobody knows what I know and what I have seen. Only I can tell my story. Anyone else who tries is a charlatan and a fool. Looking for instant gratification without doing the work. This is a disease in our society.”
