Madonna and Mariah Carey have a well documented history of throwing jabs at each other. Hence, it’s oh so ironic that Madge’s upcoming biopic is being produced in part by Mimi’s former fiance James Packer.
And the project is gathering steam.
News of its existence hit the wire earlier this year, but now its beeline for the big screen has been legitimised.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, ‘Blond Ambition’ has officially been picked up by Universal Pictures.
Produced by Packer and Carey’s friend Brett Ratner, under their RatPack production company, the film is set in early 1980s New York.

No word yet on casting or a release date. But it’s happening
