Madonna Appears To Be Working With Screenwriter Erin Wilson On Her Biopic After Diablo Cody Reportedly Left The Project
Here’s the latest update on Madonna’s biopic: DRAMA. And I wish I could say this was a story about how they just wrapped filming on the messy real-life scene where Courtney Love tossed a compact at Madonna during the red carpet of the 1995 MTV VMAs, but no, we’re still in pre-production drama. After much speculation, we can officially count Diablo Cody as 100% done with this project. Because Madonna just debuted her brand-new BSFFTDOTB (best screenwriter friend for the duration of this biopic).
The Sun claims that Oscar-winning screenwriter, Diablo Cody, is fucking done professionally with Madonna and is no longer working on Madge’s planned biopic, which was announced last August. This is the opposite of shocking to anyone who watched that Instagram Live where Madonna gave Diablo shit. Well, it’s Diablo’s loss, and I’m sure she’ll be kicking herself when Madonna wins an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, Best Director, Best Picture, AND Best Actress because we’re not even going to pretend like Madonna isn’t going to play young Madonna.
If there’s one positive thing to come out of this coronavirus pandemic, it’s that it’s given us a unique insight into Madonna’s creative process and film-making aesthetic. Madonna, whose current iteration appears to be that of “urban skate rat” meets “day-drunk eccentric auntie”(something very few can pull off, Madonna included), is ready to add yet another feather to her cap (or Kangol, stetson, snapback, Viking horns, crown of thorns, fedora—take your pick, she’s worn them all. Sometimes all at once) by becoming a Die-rector.
Yes, according to The Wrap, the upcoming Madonna biopic, co-written by Madonna (with Diablo Cody doing the actual writing and Madonna doing the rosé lubricated raconteur-ing) will also be directed by Madonna. Anyone who’s seen her Quarantine Diaries masterworks on Instagram (not to mention the unforgettable and haunting “The Great Equalizer” and the equally haunting “Fork to The Face”), already knows that Madonna will somehow manage to star in this shit as well.
