The much-anticipated Madonna biopic has been in the works for quite some time. The Material Girl is being very picky about how things are shaking out. In fact, she wants full control of the project.

Madonna has co-written the script for her story. She also wants to direct. She does not believe that a man could properly tell her incredible tale.

Speaking about the movie with Variety, Madonna said she wants the film to be extraordinary. She does not believe that is possible with a man directing. That’s why she wants to do it herself.

“I have a very long script that is really hard for me to make shorter. I’ve been whittling away at it, but it’s like hacking off my limbs.

I’ve had an extraordinary life, I must make an extraordinary film. It was also a preemptive strike because a lot of people were trying to make movies about me. Mostly misogynistic men. So I put my foot in the door and said, ‘No one’s going to tell my story but me.’”

Madonna does have some directing experience in her past. She was in charge on the set for 2008’s ‘Filth and Wisdom’ as well as 2011’s ‘W.E.’ This would be her biggest project yet, but nobody knows Madonna better than herself.
