Who is Playing Madonna in Her Official Biopic?
Rumors have spread that Ozark fan-favorite and Madonna look-a-like Julia Garner will be starring in the official biopic. Garner recently hinted at the possibility while appearing on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live.
Other actresses reportedly up for the role are Black Widow‘s Florence Pugh, Euphoria star Alexa Demie and Mayor of Kingstown‘s Emma Laird.
Based on Madonna’s formative years as a young musician, the film has been in development since 2020. Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody is attached. Madonna will direct the film, making this her official comeback since her 2011 directorial debut with the Oscar-nominated movie W.E.
Madonna’s film is another in a series of recent musical biopics, including Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, Elton John’s Rocketman, and Motley Creu’s The Dirt.
If all the rumors are true, Madonna might have another award season contender on her hands.
