Universal sets their sights on Madonna biopic Blonde Ambition

Madonna Blonde Ambition

It always strikes me as a little strange when studios begin developing biopics for people who are still alive, but there have been plenty of great biopics released when their subjects were still with us, so what the heck do I know? Universal seems to have set their sights on putting together a biopic featuring Madonna as THR has reported that the studio has picked up a script by Elyse Hollander which follows the singer during the early days of her career.

Titled BLONDE AMBITION, Hollander's script topped the 2016 Black List and will be produced by Michael De Luca and Brett Ratner. The story is set in the early 1980's when Madonna Louise Ciccone was "work[ing] on her first album, struggling in a business that treats women badly, while also dealing with a burgeoning love life and the first hints of fame." After moving to New York from Michigan in the late 1970's to pursue a career in dance, Madonna soon switched to singing and writing songs and later found some success with several dance singles. Her debut album, Madonna, was released in 1983 and "yielded hits [like] "Holiday," "Borderline" and "Lucky Star" and set the stage for her ground-breaking Like a Virgin album." I suppose the question now is who has what it takes to play a young Madonna?

I'll admit to being almost completely ignorant of Madonna, both of her music and her life, so I can't say whether BLONDE AMBITION contains enough fodder for a compelling biopic. Set me straight in the comments section or let us know which music-centric biopic is your favourite.

Forget Barbie, here's a role for Amy Schumer. A complete slut who was somewhat entertaining, until she opened her mouth and started trying to tell people how to live and vote. Schumer was born to play this part.

awesome

I know not everyone is a fan, or knows her early life, but this would be great. Yes, I say this as a hug fan, even now. I think the 80s and 90s were just as interesting, if not even more interesting than the very early years. Whether everyone is aware or not, she has changed the landscape of (pop) music. Bad thing is I can't imagine this happening without a bit of a fight from her and her team. As much as she loves attention and breaking ground, there are probably some nitty gritty happenings

Bad thing is I can't imagine this happening without a bit of a fight from her and her team. As much as she loves attention and breaking ground, there are probably some nitty gritty happenings they may want to not talk about. On the other hand, she has been very open and honest about the rough times in NYC, especially lately.
Also, for those that have not watched it, I highly recommend Truth or Dare. It's one of the best, if not better, rock documaentarys out there. It's raw, goofy, has brilliant concert footage, and gives you a (many times unflattering) fantastic behind the scenes of a superstar.

I hope they do her story justice

I mean, she's one of the greatest pop icons of the 80's. I nominate Lady Gaga for playing her, she's already into acting, and she can sing, plus, Gaga obviously worships Madonna. I hope this movie ends up being an explosion of 80's nostalgia.

hahaha, yikes, that would ever happen, but crazy fun idea.
She was also an icon well into the 90s. She didn't even get her first Grammy's until 1998, with Ray of Light.

Her whole life story? That's an awful lot of blowjobs to squeeze into 90 minutes.
