Madonna to direct own biopic
Madonna is one of the most prolific artists of her time, having sold 335 million albums.
The 62-year-old Material Girl, whose four-decade career as a singer, actress and cultural touchstone has taken in sex, religion, and other traditional taboos, will direct the biopic, according to a statement from movie studio Universal.

"I want to convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer­—a human being," Madonna said in a statement posted to her website.

"The focus of this film will always be music," she added. "Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive."

Madonna, responsible for hits such as "Like a Prayer," "Material Girl" and "Like a Virgin," is one of the most prolific artists of her time, having sold 335 million albums.

She made her film debut in 1985's Desperately Seeking Susan and won the Best Actress Golden Globe for 1996's Evita before directing and co-writing W.E. in 2011.
