The story of Madonna’s phenomenal rise to superstardom is be told via a tell-all biopic.
Its name? ‘Blond Ambition.’
‘Ambition’ will introduce/re-introduce the world to Madonna’s life.
Its starting point? New York, the city in which she arrived in 1977 to pursue superstardom following her departure from Detroit, Michigan.
Mining its way through her life in the 80s, the release will drop via RatPac Entertainment, the motion picture production company built by Mariah Carey‘s former ‘Loverboy’ James Packer.
The industry’s excitement around the project is so high that it has topped this year’s Black List, the annual list of the most-liked screenplays in town that have not been produced.
In 1980s New York, Madonna struggles to get her frst album released while navigating fame, romance, and a music industry that views women as disposal.

Home to many of these is ‘Lifetime’ which housed projects dedicated to Britney Spears, Michel’le, Aaliyah, Whitney Houston and if an unconfirmed report published by Dish Nation is anything to go by…Beyonce.
