Mariah Carey’s Ex James Packer To Produce Madonna Biopic


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.

Peep its details via ‘Deadline’ below…

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.
AGENTS: Tanya Cohen, Simon Faber
MANAGEMENT: Bellvue Productions
MANAGER: John Zaozirny
PRODUCERS: RatPac Entertainment (James Packer), Michael De Luca Producutions, Bellvue Productions

RatPac- Dune was founded by Brett Ratner, Packer and James Mnuchin and is to bring Madonna’s story to life after it threw its support and resources behind the likes of ‘Magic Mike‘, ‘Barbershop: The Next Cut’, ‘Wonder Woman’ and Michael B. Jordan‘s ‘Creed.’

Production is yet to begin and a premiere date is yet to be set.

Madonna’s involvement with it? That remains to be seen.

What fans do know is that her release stands as one of many biopics built to explore the lives of some of Pop culture’s brightest stars.

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.

Keep it locked on TGJ for more on this developing story.

    Good for Madonna. What was the true intent of this post? Over the years Mariah + Madonna have settled their differences + usually have positive things to say about each other. You guys truly love negativity. It’s sick!

    Yawn. Madonna slept her talentless and jealous way to the top and was visibly shaken by the successes of female music artists who slated after 1987: Whitney, Mariah, Janet, Toni, Jennifer, Shania, Cher, Britney, Beyoncé and Gaga. The end.

    At the end of the day there will only ever be ONE Madonna, she is the true definition of legendary! The gap in her tooth is more iconic than your faves whole careers! She truly is the number ONE female star of all time, 34 years and STILL relevant on sell out tours! Makes me laugh how people call her a flop yet their faves wouldn’t even be here without her breaking boundaries and kicking the doors down! I’m SO excited too watch this! A true music icon! Madonna will live forever!! PS. her 1990 Immaculate collection is the greatest album
    Of all time!!

    Petty AF, and I’m not referring to Packer. Why post that Mariah video shading Madonna without the context. Madonna said terrible things about a then-young Mariah Carey which led to Mariah’s response.

    I’ve always wondered why Madonna hasn’t written a book yet. Shes lived one hell of a life.
