Rumour: Madonna in Valley of the Dolls Remake

20th Century Fox is gearing up to remake the 1967 cult classic Valley of the Dolls, with the studio eyeing actresses such as Madonna, Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway and Emmy Rossum for starring roles.

The original movie, based on Jacqueline Susann’s novel, starred Barbara Parkins, Patty Duke and Sharon Tate as starlets Anne Welles, Neely O’Hara and Jennifer North, with the story charting their rise and fall in the movie and theater industry. The remake, which is being written by Paul Rudnick (The First Wive’s Club, In & Out), is centered on the modern-day music business in Hollywood, particularly centering on Neely O’Hara’s fall from grace. The remake is being conceived as a dark comedy.

Madonna is being courted to play Broadway star Helen Lawson, a role originally portrayed by Susan Hayward which was initially intended for Judy Garland. Jennifer Lawrence is being eyed to play Jennifer North, Anne Hathaway is in contention to play Anne Welles and Emmy Rossum is up for the Neely O’Hara role.

    Madonna needs a break from music, tours, directing, philantropy, and writing. Evita changed the course of her career and she is very good in ensembles and so she is in good company with Anne and J Law

  • OMG!

    i really hope that she’s not considering appearing in a movie anymore – because she isn’t a great actress. and i say this as a longlasing fan! overall she sould leave the film biz alone – no acting, no directing – and concentrate on her already declining music career.

    Madonna herself is, I should say BEST at martial arts/weapons. And I am wondering why she never choose to play in action films. By watching Sky Fits Heaven in Drowned World Tour, Revolver and Gang Bang in MDNA Tour is the finest proof that she is a great actress to play in action movies. Hoping that someone can urge Ms M to play, at least once. No matter how bad critics says about her acting skill,.. she is Madonna anyway. Yeah, she’s Madonna.

    • ronnnie

      Good observation but she is really good at Evita, DSS, DT and ALOTO

  • and the winner is

    • PJHUTREW

      Wow this set list, has some great previously unsung live tracks on, take it this gig is happening in the USA?

      • LIVE NATION

        Yes, in the USA.

      • CC BABCOCK

        It’s a great setlist. The best setlist ever!!!!

        I hope it is true!!!!!!!

    • Frozen

      Is this true?

      • LIVE NATION

        Yes, it is. But it’s a secret. They are NOT going to say a word until half February.

      • Vasidis

        It was a secret, if it’s true…

    • Patrick

      she’s going to do 26 songs? that suggests that this will be a full 2 hour concert (MDNA had 26 songs). this sounds great but i’m skeptical. seems like a big undertaking for an intimate setting especially when she has nothing specific to promote.

      • weird

        lol. Music isn’t always about promoting.

      • Patrick

        well obvi, but that doesn’t negate the fact that usually a performance of this magnitude WOULD be about promoting SOMETHING.

    • http://allaboutmadonna.com/ Pera

      Nonsense, she not even performing

      i think: what a great employee you are.
      they must be happy having you in the company.

    • Paul Garcia

      I find it hard to believe she would do a project with out no promotion.

  • Frozen

    I would like to see her in a film by Disney. It would be great!!!!!

    • disagree

      Disney is so sh*t now, so no, I wouldn’t.

      • S

        Madonna should definitely take on another movie – as she hasn’t appeared as a lead in a movie for more than 12 years and if she gets a good part she can do well!
