So, apparently, what Madonna really wants to do is… direct. (Gulp.)
I was just thinking: “Gee movie studios lose alot of money but how can they guarantee the loss of millions of dollars?”
Thanks Madge for a concrete answer.
I don’t care about Madonna’s directorial ambitions, but I just realized something. I turn to you and USA Today’s Pop Candy for my boredom relieving entertainment blog needs; however, I find myself visiting Whitney Matheson’s blog a bit more often. She is a singular voice, so overtime I have come to know what sort of info and opinions I will get there, and as silly as it sounds she has a picture which makes it feel more like a unique person writing a blog. Popwatch -while equally insightful- on it’s surface feels a bit facelessly corporate. Did I miss the blogger bios?
If she’s directing then she probably won’t act in it, right? I suppose even that is preferrable to her acting again.
she’ll probably make a better director than an actor,,she strikes me as a perfectionist who can give direction,,,rather than take it
Madonna, as we should all know by now, was born to be in charge. Coupled with her extraordinary, often uncanny vision, the thought strikes this longtime fan that helming a film is the most natural thing in the world for her. That the movie(s) will be good – there’s no doubt. Will they be successful or appeal to the unwashed miscreants whose cellular phones ring their way through mass market movies today? Well, that’s anyone’s guess.
If you can make a movie on marketing and determination, it’ll be a hit.If you need more than moderate talent to go with self-promotion and self-satisfaction, there may be a problem.
I think it’s a wise choice. Only Madonna haters who maybe want to see her fail will diss this idea. I wish she would continue acting as well though as she is good in most roles. In about 50 years her movies will be considered good and not deserving of the hate they received. ho hum
I would guess that Madonna would be a pretty good to excellent director. She’s acted, so she knows her way around the set, and as another poster said, she was born to be in charge. She’s not a great actress, but I think she has the chops to be a director. Plus, her husband can give her tips!
I’m not a Madonna fan, but I actually don’t think she’s a bad actress. Directing? Watch out, Scorsese!
She is such a control freak I would imagine she’d be agood director. She’s been involved with every aspect of her tours over the years and making sure that every little detail is attended to, so I think she could probably pull it off. As to whether or not the film would be successful – that woul ddepend entirely on the story and performances of the cast.
Anything that keeps her from acting!!!!
I am a huge madonna fan and i think she would make a good director.If she need help all she can do is ask her husband Guy Ritchie cause he a director.I wounder what kind of movie shes going to make ill bet it be a good movie.
Happy Birthday Madonna. You are the best. :)
What will it be called? Three tramps and a thief? Sags and bags? Whitewashed mom? Gravity catches up? Only easy women allowed? Has-been-are US? Sleeping in Hollywood? Madonkey?
