It’s been reported that Inventing Anna star Julia Garner, 28, is to play the Material Girl hitmaker, though nothing is confirmed yet.

And Madonna has spilled that she came to make the movie because she was fed up with men wanting to tell her story in a misogynistic way.

She said: ‘I’ve had an extraordinary life, I must make an extraordinary film.

‘It was also a preemptive strike because a lot of people were trying to make movies about me. Mostly misogynistic men. So I put my foot in the door and said, “No one’s going to tell my story, but me.”‘

The Like A Virgin hitmaker also ruled out selling the rights to her back catalogue like Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young have done lately.

She told the outlet: ‘Because they’re my songs. Ownership is everything isn’t it?’

In 2021, Madonna released a trap version of her 1998 hit Frozen after it went viral on TikTok, and four remixes followed.

It came after the music legend announced her plans to re-release her back catalogue.

She said: ‘I’m just looking for interesting, fun ways to rerelease my catalogue and introduce my music to a new generation.’

And the Vogue singer hinted she’s planning to head out on tour again. 

Madonna added: ‘The whole thing with Frozen was so fun, but I woke up one day and went, “I’m sick of living in the past!” I want to go on tour again, I’m a creature of the stage. That is my happy place.’
