Step aside, superheroes. Movies about rock stars are red hot right now. It makes you wonder whose story we could be seeing next at the multiplex. Maybe Madonna? How about Cher?
Dexter Fletcher (below), who directed the new Elton John biopic Rocketman and part of Bohemian Rhapsody, was asked if he would be willing to make a film on the life of Madonna or Cher. He said, “I’d do Madonna! That sounds like a real roller coaster ride! It would be extraordinary.”
There was talk of a Madonna movie back in 2017, but she shot those plans down on Instagram, saying, “Only I can tell my story. Anyone else who tries is a charlatan and a fool. Looking for instant gratification without doing the work.”
So it might be a while before we can watch Madonna’s life story on screen. Are there any other rock stars you think should get the biopic treatment?
