Madonna says she's “almost finished” the script for her biopic

Madonna has provided a fresh update on the progress of her upcoming film biopic.

The singer announced last month that she is co-directing and co-writing the forthcoming film, which she recently described as a “visual autobiography”.

Posting on Instagram last night (October 19), Madonna shared a series of photos including one which showed her posing with what appears to be the script for the film.

“Grateful for the success of Madame X, that my script is almost finished and for the support of my beautiful children!” she wrote. You can see the post below.

Screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson, who can be seen in the background of the script photo, is working on the script with Madonna. Diablo Cody – who won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay in 2007 for Juno – is also reportedly working on the project.

Last week Madonna reflected on the creative process behind the film, saying that “writing my script is the most draining, challenging experience I’ve ever had”.

“It’s kind of like psychotherapy in a way, because I have to remember every detail from my childhood till now,” she added.

Earlier this month Madonna held a secret ‘Madame X’ gig in New York and ended it by taking the show to the streets of Harlem.

The original concert took place at Ginny’s Supper Club and was held to celebrate the release of the film version of Madame X.
