Starring as Madonna is a once-in-a-lifetime role that many actresses only dream about. But for Julia Garner, this may soon be a reality! As multiple sources reported, she has been offered the role in the upcoming biopic about the pop star. Directed and co-written by our Material Girl herself, here's what we know so far...

After her critically acclaimed performances in Ozark and Inventing Anna, perhaps it comes as no surprise to learn that Julia Garner was considered for the highly sought-after role. According to Variety, her competition included Florence Pugh, Euphoria's Alexa Demie, Odessa Young, Bebe Rexha, and Sky Ferreira. However, it was Garner that reportedly shined the brightest, and with the singing, dancing, and acting involved, Garner seems to be the triple threat they were looking for! It is believed the studio is now awaiting a response from her team.

The film will follow the early career of Madonna, highlighting her most significant moments of reinvention and scandal. In response to the news about the upcoming film, Madonna explained that it was her goal to "convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer - a human being, trying to make her way in this world. The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going, and art has kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories, and who better to tell it than me. It's essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision."

Garner's involvement has yet to be officially announced, and details of the project's production timeline or release have remained under wraps. In October, the seven-time Grammy-winning singer revealed that the script was almost complete but has remained silent since. People has reported that Uncut Gems actress Julia Fox will be playing the singer's best friend, Debi Mazar. Stay tuned while this story continues to develop...
