Those of Florence Pugh ( Black Widow ) and Julia Garner ( Ozark, Inventing Anna ). In the running for the role, after months of work coordinated by casting director Carmen Cuba , also Alexa Demie ( Euphoria ), Odessa Young ( Mothering Sunday ) and Emma Laird ( Mayor of Kingstown ). Also considered singers, such as Bebe Rexha andSky Ferreira .

The casting process was called “exhausting” by a source for The Hollywood Reporter . Apparently, the candidates take part in choreography sessions with Madonna’s choreographer and then with Madonna herself, sometimes for 11 hours a day. Then they are called back, they read passages from the screenplay with Madonna and have to do singing auditions in front of her. A person close to production said: “You have to be able to do everything”. Also because currently the script ends with the Blonde Ambition World Tour (even if it could change), and therefore the protagonist will have to dance and sing. Anyone who lands the role will then have to spend months training and rehearsing before filming.

Authors and producers

Madonna’s biopic will, as mentioned, be directed by herself. The pop star also wrote the first draft of the screenplay with Diablo Cody , which later left the project. Erin Cressida Wilson ( Secretary ) took her place . Madonna will produce the film with Universal Pictures.
