Madonna has teased fans with a new film project, a music-orientated script she is developing with Tully screenwriter Diablo Cody.

The pop icon took to Instagram on Friday to share a black-and-white video, in which the pair sit together on a sofa. Cody takes notes on her laptop, while Madonna gives her feedback and snacks on nuts.

The Into the Groove hitmaker captioned the post: "When you’re stuck in a house with multiple injuries what do you do? Write a Screenplay with Diablo Cody about... " along with a string of book, music, and film-related emoji.

In the clip, Madonna can be heard telling Cody: “All these details are important. They’re important.”

Although no further details have been revealed, the video contained enough hints to spurn speculation among fans that Madonna is working on a biopic.

Elsewhere in the footage, Cody and Madonna discuss an outfit the 61-year-old wore on her Blond Ambition World Tour.

"The garters were over the suit bottoms, right?" Cody asks.

"Straight pin-striped pants sit beneath the corset, it's cut high-waisted on the leg, the garters come down here, cone bra zipped up the front and then the double-breasted suit coat goes over it," Madonna replies, adding, “Et voilà, an iconic costume," before sticking two nuts up her nostrils.

I have no idea what to expect of this, but I'm intrigued and open-minded! It's a definitely a good sign that Madonna is fully involved and that she's collaborating with an award winning screenwriter. I've seen a lot of theories it'll cover her New York days, becoming a star, meeting Sean, Like a Prayer and culminating in the Blond Ambition Tour as that's a very Bohemian Rhapsody-esque story and contains the most general public friendly hits. That does seem possible and could be great, but I'd personally like the biopic to explore Madonna's battles with ageism and sexism further down the line, as well as of course highlighting her strength and resilience.

Whatever happens, if this can open Madonna to a brand new audience and give her the respect as an artist she deserves, I'll be happy.

Any ideas of what the biopic could be called? I've seen 'Live to Tell' mentioned a lot and I like it!

Here for this as the opening chapter (and then a trilogy of biopics, taking us to modern day).

Also 'Live To Tell' would be an amazing title, or 'Blonde Ambition'?

Her Instagram story shows her looking back through journals from the early 80s. This is all TOO EXCITING.

I'd definitely say this. The right first step has been taken...bringing in Diablo Cody for scripting duties. She's the perfect person to tell Madonna's story. Equally important will be the right director. Would Patty Jenkins do it...?

Anyway. Telling Madonna's story is a tricky one...because there are just more iconic eras and iconic songs to cover...even compared to other legends. If I were plotting it, I think I'd jump around eras quite a lot...and do career beginnings/Like a Virgin at the VMAs...Like a Prayer controversy/Vogue/Blonde Ambition tour...Erotica/SEX book/height of controversy...and first child/critical acceptance with Ray of Light. Then...maybe cap off the film with a recreation of the Hung Up video or one of the song's performances. Maybe all of that's doable in a film? Maybe? I think those moments highlight what I see as the major themes of her career; the constant disruption of music norms, the frustration of being denied critical acceptance, and the way her mother's death shaped her life.

As for an actress to play her...I'll float this out there. Florence Pugh? She's proven herself to be very versatile and willing to do edgy work. With the right make-up and minor prosthetics, maybe she could look like M? She also sings. Anyway. That's a thought. It may have to be a relative unknown...and give someone a star making turn like Jennifer Lopez in Selena.

If she's writing and directing this herself, I'm expecting a real objective piece.

Julia Garner seems to fit the bill best - she does share similarities in looks and it seems like she's a good actor from what I hear, which is the most important thing of all.

Anne Winters put out a bid on social media to play the role!

QUOTE
Anne Winters has dressed up in Madonna's most iconic looks to get her attention.

The 26-year-old actress re-created images of herself channeling the seven-time Grammy winner from her Like a Prayer and Material Girl music videos, among others, because she wants to star in the legend's self-directed biopic.

And the 13 Reasons Why star has also revealed that the 62-year-old hitmaker is now following her on social media and has even 'reached out' after viewing the photos.

Over the weekend, the actress began sharing images of herself depicting the musical icon over the years, in a bid to star in her upcoming self-directed biopic.

'BLOW UP @Madonna Instagram guys — I wana [sic]play her in her new biopic,' Winters captioned the first image of herself. 'I've been told I look like young Madonna forever, I act I sing I look like her.... cmon now.'

She went on to explain 'casting and film business has been whack af' amid the coronavirus pandemic, so she was 'trying a new tactic' to land the leading role in the film.

Winters went on to post several different looks, using the hashtags #minimadonna, #hireme and #BLONDEAMBITION, in reference to the performer's 1990 world tour.

The Vogue singer is working on her biopic with Diablo Cody, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of the 2007 gem Juno, and Amy Pascal, who will produce it.

Speaking about the project recently on Instagram, Madonna said: 'I want 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 rollercoaster ride of my life with my voice and vision.'

Earlier this week, it was revealed the film will explore some of the darker aspects of her life before rising to stardom, including being raped at knifepoint at the age of 20.

A source told The Mirror: 'She lost her mother to cancer when she was just five, something a child never gets over. But she turned her loss and pain into a creative force to be reckoned with.

'There will be some shockers, as that is just part of her DNA. This has been an incredibly cathartic process for Madonna,' the insider continued.

'She is uncovering memories that have long been left dormant. She has done and achieved so much, so to have this time to reflect has been quite magical.'

Madonna previously revealed she was raped after moving from Michigan to New York to begin her music career.

In an essay for Harper's Bazaar, she wrote: 'New York wasn't everything I thought it would be. It did not welcome me with open arms. The first year, I was held up at gunpoint.

'Raped on the roof of a building I was dragged up to with a knife in my back, and had my apartment broken into three times. I don't know why; I had nothing of value after they took my radio the first time.'

She previously explained: 'I was told that if I wanted to press charges, that, you know, a physical examination, I would have to go before the court, they are going to ask you all these personal questions.

'You've already been violated, so then, do you want to talk about it? Do you want to make it public? No, it's just not worth it. It's too humiliating,' she said.


Here are some of the looks:

















She is going ALL out. Some of these recreations are spot on! The effort clap.gif
