Diablo Cody completes Madonna script | Leisure

Diablo Cody finished the script for Madonna’s self-directed biopic.

The ‘Juno’ scriptwriter worked on the script with Madonna, 62, for much of 2020 and the two have now sent a final draft to Universal, the studio developing the film.

A source told EW that Cody, 42, “has finished her job and moved on to her next project”.

Madonna announced the project last year and said in a statement: “I want to convey the incredible journey that life as an artist, musician, dancer – as a person – has taken to find my way in this world. The focus of this film is always music kept me going and art kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who can tell them better than me. It’s important to share the roller coaster ride of my life with me, my voice and vision. “

Amy Pascal will be producing under her Pascal Pictures banner alongside Madonna herself, while Sara Zambreno and Guy Oseary will be executive producers.

Shared the project, Amy shared, “I’ve known Madonna since we started our own league together, and I can’t think of anything more exciting than working with her and Diablo to bring her true story with Donna and on screen to our partners Universal. “

Donna Langley, Chair of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, added, “Madonna is the ultimate icon, humanitarian, artist and rebel. With her unique ability to create art that is as accessible as it is cross-border, she has shaped our culture in one country so very few others have it. “

The film will take fans on a journey through Madonna’s incredible five decades of career.

What’s the oldest in your dressing room?
A fantastic Earth, Wind & Fire 1975 tour shirt that I bought from a vintage store in Santa Monica on my first trip to Los Angeles 25 years ago.

And the latest addition?
Black Bally leather pants.

What would you wear …
… on the first date? Black leather pants with a white shirt and black monk strap Bally shoes. It’s the ultimate smart casual look to wear anywhere.
… on an airplane? I dress comfortably, but you want to look good too, so everything is a bit casual – comfortable pants, no jeans. It’s getting cold up there, so I always have a hat and a scarf.
… to the Oscars? A tuxedo but with an edge, something to personalize it. For example, when I won a lodging for The Principal in 2016, I was wearing a vintage white tuxedo and a Le Noeud Papillon bow tie that looked black but was actually purple. I wore it as a tribute to Prince who had just died.

I recently saw a picture of the Jackson 5 in 1971: Michael was just a kid, they wear striped bell bottoms, large collared shirts, and hats – it’s psychedelic with a ’60s vibe. I feel that.

No. Every great designer has his or her moments, they cannot all stay at their peak.

I tend to layer them by mood. The Tom Ford range is a breeze.
