Madonna announced Tuesday that she is co-writing and directing a film about her own life, according to Variety. “I want to convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer — a human being," she said. “The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive," she added. "There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell it than me. It’s essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision," the pop icon said. Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody will co-write the script. The film, still untitled, will be done by Universal Pictures, where Madonna's longtime producer pal Amy Pascal's company is set up. “This movie is an absolute labor of love for me,” Pascal said. The two met on 1992's A League of Their Own.
