Diablo Cody Quits Madonna's Biopic (Report)

Diablo Cody has reportedly exited from Madonna‘s project.

The 42-year-old Juno screenwriter quit the upcoming biopic amid challenges working with the singer, The Sun reported Thursday (April 1).

The Madonna-directed movie, which is said to explore the beginning of Madonna‘s career,
was announced back in September of 2020.

According to the report, Diablo found Madonna “too difficult to work with,” as she is “very particular.”

Madonna and Diablo spent weeks working on the screenplay and made good progress. But Madonna is understandably very particular about how she wants it to be. She’s a perfectionist and because it is about her life, she is being very careful about how things come across. Diablo needed more freedom to be able to make it work and ultimately decided she couldn’t contribute any more,” a source told the outlet.

Universal is now reportedly on the hunt for a new writer for the project.

Madonna doesn’t need the money and isn’t going to let a movie get made which she doesn’t feel is authentic to her experiences,” the source added.

Find out more about what the project. Some fans think this actress is in the running to play Madonna.
