We're at the borderline of a movie all about the Queen of Pop, and we couldn't be more excited. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a biopic about Madonna's early days is in the works, titled Blond Ambition.
The film will reportedly focus on her life in NYC during the early 1980s as she works on her self-titled 1983 debut album while also trying to make it in a male-dominated business. That album would go on to spawn early Madonna favorites like "Holiday," "Borderline," and "Lucky Star." The film will also take a look at her love life and early brushes with fame in the years after she left her native Michigan in 1978 to move to NYC. Who will play the iconic pop star in the flick has yet to be revealed.

Madge may have thrown a little shade at the project on Instagram. "Nobody knows what I know and what I have seen. Only I can tell my story," she wrote. "Anyone else who tries is a charlatan and a fool. Looking for instant gratification without doing the work. This is a disease in our society."
As it turns out, 1980s New York City has quickly become a go-to era in TV and film as of late. Last month it was announced that it would serve as a backdrop for a TV show based on RuPaul's early career. Ryan Murphy is also working on a show set in 1986 Manhattan called Pose which "examines the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York City: the emergence of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene, and the ball culture world."
Excuse us while we gather up some lace, headbands. and all the boy toy belts we can find in anticipation of this exciting news.
