Madonna to Direct Her Own Biopic, Co-Written by Oscar-Winning Writer Diablo Cody

Pop-icon Madonna is all set to helm her own biopic for which she has been working with Oscar-winning co-writer Diablo Cody. The singing sensation will be directing her own journey from the New York City slums to heights of global stardom over the five-decades long career. According to Variety, the untitled film has landed at the Universal Pictures under the wing of filmed entertainment group chair Donna Langley and producer Amy Pascal, whose eponymous company is set up on the Universal lot. The production dates and the cast of the film are yet to be announced. Elvis: Tom Hanks to Resume Shoot for Legendary Singer’s Biopic in Australia from September 23

“I want to convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer — a human being, trying to make her way in this world,” Variety quoted Madonna as saying. “The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell it than me. It’s essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision,” added Madonna. Sam Rockwell in Talks to Play Merle Haggard in Country Music Legend’s Biopic For Amazon Studios

Praising the musician for her hard work over the years, Langley termed her as “the ultimate icon, humanitarian, artist and rebel.” “With her singular gift of creating art that is as accessible as it is boundary-pushing, she has shaped our culture in a way very few others have,” Langley said. The biopic can be seen as a reunion of Madonna and Pascal who worked together in 1992 to make the sentimental favourite, ‘A League of Their Own.’

“This movie is an absolute labour of love for me. I have known Madonna since we made ‘A League of Their Own’ together, and I can’t imagine anything more thrilling than collaborating with her and Diablo on bringing her true-life story to the big screen with Donna and our partners at Universal,” Variety quoted Pascal as saying. Madonna has earlier helmed two feature films – ‘Filth and Wisdom’ and the Golden-Globe winning ‘W.E.’ Besides that she has also acted in several films like ‘Desperately Seeking Susan,’ ‘Evita,’ and ‘Dick Tracy.’

S P Balasubrahmanyam No More! Here Are Five Unknown Facts About The Legendary Singer That You Should Always Remember

Hyderabad, September 28: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, requesting him to confer India’s highest civilian honour – the Bharat Ratna – on the late S.P. Balasubramanyam for his legendary contribution to music and arts. “As a tribute to the legendary singer for his outstanding contribution in the field of music and art, I request you to confer Bharat Ratna award upon him,” wrote Reddy.

He reminded the Prime Minister that music stalwarts such as Lata Mangeshkar, Bhupen Hazarika, M.S. Subbulakshmi, Bismillah Khan and Bhimsen Joshi were also conferred with the Bharat Ratna. “This will be the highest recognition to his remarkable work which lasted for five decades and stays in our memory forever,” he said.

Justifying his request, Reddy mentioned Balasubramanyam’s familiar contribution to the arts, more than 40,000 songs in multiple languages. “He won six national film awards for best male playback singer for his work, 25 AP state Nandi awards for his work in Telugu cinema, and numerous other state awards in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu,” he said, among other awards.

In 2001, Balasubramanyam was honoured with the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan in 2011 by the Government of India. “Our state of AP is fortunate for being the birthplace (Nellore) of the great maestro. His untimely departure not only caused much distress to fans and celebrities living in India but also has affected the international music fraternity,” observed Reddy.

The chief minister said the doyen’s impact can be gauged by the continuous flow of tributes from music aficionados from across the world. On Sunday, former chief minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) supremo N. Chandrababu Naidu had also asked for a slew of recognitions and honours for the singer by the state government. Born in Nellore district of southern Andhra Pradesh, Balasubramanyam passed away on Friday at the age of 74 in a Chennai hospital.
