Other names that were up for the role, according to a source, were Florence Pugh, Alexa Demie, Odessa Young, Bebe Rexha, and Sky Ferreria. As of now, there is no word on any other actors that could be cast or a timeline for the production of the film.
However, Madonna confirmed the news of a biopic and said that she hoped to “convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer — a human being, trying to make her way in this world. The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell it than me. It’s essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision.”
Madonna grew up in Michigan and later dropped out of college to move to New York City. From there, she began her career as a musician and is now known as a pop icon.
