Madonna & Diablo Cody Collaborating on Script...Her Biopic?


From left to right, the above image is of singer Madonna and Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno, Jennifer's Body, Tully). This image is from a video that Madonna put up on her Instagram page on Friday and is just making the rounds. On the post, she put the caption, “when you’re stuck in a house with multiple injuries what do you do? Write a screenplay with Diablo Cody about…?” So, in short, Madona and Cody are apparently working together on a potential film project (With the caption followed by music-themed projects implying it will include music). Of what though?

Dark Horizons put up this article earlier and theorized, based on references made in the video to Madonna’s Jean Paul Gaultier cone-bra costume from 1990, that it might be a biopic of Madonna’s career. This has been a popular trend lately, following the box office and award season success of recent films such as the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody and the Elton John biopic Rocketman. Much like the latter, the subject of the biopic seems determined to make sure it is an authentic insight into their life.

Although one can wonder if it's a trend that's already getting a little old.

In any case, time will tell, if this is indeed a biopic of Madonna's decades-long career, whether it will achieve the same success. Stay tuned!
