Madonna has opened up about the planned biopic of her life and career, which she is currently working on with Diablo Cody, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Juno.
During a 65 minute-long video to her Instagram Live account, the legendary singer revealed that the film will be about her “struggle as an artist trying to survive in a man's world as a woman, and really just the journey.”
She said it will be “happy, sad, mad, crazy, good, bad and ugly”.
The 62-year-old added: "We do talk about Andy [Warhol], and Keith [Haring], and Jean-Michel Basquiat and Martin Burgoyne and the whole coming up as an artist in Manhattan, downtown, Lower East Side in the early '80s.
“Honestly, [it's] one of the best times of my life, and one of the worst times. I hope I can portray or express what a thrilling time that was for me in every way.”
Madonna also revealed that it won’t be a musical, but will obviously include “a lot of music,” and that, at the moment, her and Cody have written 107 pages of a script that they predict will equate to a runtime of around two hours.
She even teased a “great scene” that will depict her writing Like A Prayer with Pat Leonard, as well as her “devastating experience with Pepsi”. This saw the soft drinks company drop Madonna after a backlash to her Like A Prayer music video.
At the moment, the biopic is untitled.
