Julia Garner Officially Cast As Madonna


Recommended Posts

Idk if you guys have been following the Madonna biopic that's in production, but Madonna herself has co-written the script and is set to direct the upcoming movie about her life!

Now Julia Garner (Ozark, Inventing Anna) has apparently been cast as the lead.

Quote

 

“Inventing Anna” actress Julia Garner has been offered the role of Madonna in a forthcoming biopic about the pop icon, sources familiar with the project told Variety.

Garner has emerged the favorite from over a dozen candidates, one insider added, and has for months been speculated as a frontrunner for the part — a performance Madonna will shepherd herself as director. Garner’s team is considering and expected to accept the offer, said another source.

 

I liked her a lot in Ozark although I thought Inventing Anna was way overhyped. I do think she would do a good job as Madge, but I'm a little worried if Madonna herself is the director given how messy she's been acting lately... :awkwardney: 

What do you guys think?

I love Madonna (old Madonna at least lol, i mean old like 80's Madonna, not an age problem so don't call me ageist lol) but this thing of her directing her own biopic scares me.

She said she's the only person who can direct a biopic about her life, but i think it might not be right.

Madonna's HUGE ego might become a bit intrusive, might be wrong but i'd have prefered somebody else directing it.

The choice of the actress partially proves i might not be totally wrong: Madonna's true colors are dark brown, she spent the first years of her career, before being famous in NY, just being a brunette, she kept her hair roots and her eyebrows brown for so long, her italian heritage just showed a lot when she was a kid.

The actress they picked looks very different from Madonna aged 20 22, she looks like some beautiful swedish mannequin which is far from what madonna was on her way to stardom.

Julia Garner look more like the porjection Madonna had of herself rather that what she really looked like at her age (if you know what i mean lol).

ps: there's a dancer who won an awful talent show here in Italy which reminds me A LOT of Madonna aged 19 20, an actress with those dark italian features would have been a much fitter pick.

I completely agree with you on Madonna directing! I think she's just too close to the source material to give it a fair go...It's going to be Mariah Carey's autobiography all over again where she always comes out the hero in every situation and it's everyone else who's the horrible person :awkwardney: I think someone less biased would have done a better job of capturing the real Madonna, but I guess we'll see what happens.

As for the way Julia looks, I actually think she's pretty close but I can see what you mean in terms of getting someone who looks more like young Madonna/current Lourdes. But I also wouldn't say Rami Malek looks like Freddie Mercury and they did a pretty good job with that so I'm not too worried about the way she looks. I just hope she gets the persona right!

Totally agree, even if I have to be honest, it's always hard for me to see the actors who play the role of such famous icons and personalities I'm super familiar with and not constantly think that it's someone dressed as them. 

Malok did a great job with the Queen movie, but I couldn't help but thinking that it was someone with fake teeth dressed as Freddie Mercury 😞

Another Mariah Carey hero lol, but yeah exactly you're right it's gonna be a huge self celebration

I get what you mean. I definitely thought that when I was watching that Lucille Ball movie with Nicole Kidman that just came out recently :vacuum: She played the role well but she didn't look or act anything like the real Lucy. But I thought Rami Malek, Taron Egerton and Renee Zelwegger all did a good job with their characters so I think as long as they find the right person it can work!
