Universal Pictures Scraps feature film about Madonna’s life


A feature film about Madonna’s life and career is no longer moving forward at Universal Pictures.

The film was first announced in 2020. Madonna has worked on drafts of the script with both Diablo Cody and Erin Cressida Wilson.

Actress Julia Garner was reportedly set to star in the lead role. Last week, Madonna announced the extensive Celebration Tour, kicking off July 15 at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena.

Madonna’s last studio album was 2019’s Madame X. Last year, she shared the retrospective remix collection Finally Enough Love and joined Beyoncé on a remix of the single “Break My Soul” that featured an interpolation of her 1990 hit “Vogue.”
