Director Dexter Fletcher has said he would be up for shooting a film about Madonna’s life.
Of course, the filmmaker already has a track record for rock biopics.
As well as this month’s Rocketman, which details the life of Elton John, he directed part of last year’s blockbuster Queen/Freddie Mercury picture, Bohemian Rhapsody.
We spoke to Dexter last month ahead of the London premiere of Rocketman earlier this month, and asked him: ‘Would you consider a return to the rock biopic genre – and would you please do Madonna or Cher’?
Dexter replied: ‘I’d do Madonna! That sounds like a real rollercoaster ride! It would be extraordinary.’
Asked if thought of a film on the Material Girl’s life had occurred to him before, he said: ‘No… no it hasn’t. I don’t know how happy she’d be about that [idea]… But what an extraordinary life that would be.
‘If I was to tackle any other icon like that, it would be her. She’s extraordinary.’
