Madonna is about to release her biopic, and something that caught our attention is that she will only surround herself with women in the production, and it was only now that she revealed the secret of that little detail.
Although this is not the first battle she has faced against what she considers sexism in the entertainment industry, this time the repercussions have been reflected in the whole process of the film, that’s why she will not have a single man working with her.
Madonna and the movie that will tell the story of her life
Since Madonna announced that she had the green light to take her life to the big screen, as stars like Freddie Mercury (Bohemian Rhapsody: The Freddie Mercury Story), Elton John (Rocketman) or James Brown (James Brown: The King of Soul with the late actor Chadwick Boseman) have already done, expectations are set to the great controversies that the actress has lived, although her struggle to realize the project in her own way has begun to be a new chapter that ironically could be included in the same film.
For Madonna most men are “misogynists” that’s why she doesn’t want just one in her film. “Embarking on this film was preemptive, because a lot of people were trying to make films about me. Mostly misogynistic men. So I got my foot in the door and said, ‘No one is going to tell my story, just me.'”
Madonna’s powerful message
“The reason I’m doing the movie is that a lot of people have tried to make movies about me, and it’s always men,” the singer recounted during an October 2021 visit to the Jimmy Fallon show. The project that came closest to going forward was Blonde Ambition, a script that ended 2016 on the Black List of the industry’s best scripts that have yet to find financing.
