Cher's life is set to become the subject of a new movie, the Goddess of Pop herself has revealed.

Rocketman, Stardust and The Doors – you name it, musician biopics have been popular for decades, but this one in particular has the potential to be something special.

In her tweeted announcement this week, Cher (real name Cherilyn Sarkisian) confirmed that Oscar-winning writer Eric Roth is at the keyboard, while Mamma Mia producers Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman are also on board.
