We’ll soon be seeing the story of Madonna’s life in New York City in the early 1980s when she first shot to stardom.
A biopic is currently in the works about the iconic diva working to release her debut album in the Big Apple, while struggling to balance fame, romance and the music industry at the time.
Universal is set to develop the biopic titled Blonde Ambition
and it will be produced by Michael De Luca, who also produced the Fifty Shades
The studio had purchased rights to a screenplay about Madonna’s first album, which also topped the 2016 Black List – an annual list of the most-liked unproduced screenplays in Hollywood.
The singer broke into the scene in 1983 with a self-titled debut album. But her second studio album, Like a Virgin
, released in the following year was the one that won her global recognition.
Since then, Madonna has been churning out hit after hit that have become some of the most iconic songs of our generation.
And the 58-year-old singer doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
Let’s take a walk down memory lane and enjoy some of Madonna’s biggest hits over the decades:
Like a Prayer
Don't Cry For Me Argentina
Papa Don't Preach
