Material Girl slams Universal biopic about her early days. - From MLive.com
The script, authored by Elyse Hollander, made the 2016 Black List, the industry ranking that tracks Hollywood's most-liked, un-produced screenplays.
After news of the biopic broke, Madonna took to Instagram to express her disapproval with the screenplay, asking why Universal would "want to make a movie about me based on a script that is all lies." A scene in the script describes a young Madonna telling Dick Clark on "American Bandstand" that she was born in Detroit and dropped out of high school -- a statement that Bay Cityans know is not true and a point of contention for the pop superstar.
In fact, I went to the University of Michigan." Of course, Madonna is best known around here for describing Bay City as "smelly little town" in a famous interview with Jane Pauley.
Madonna has since deleted her Instagram rant about the Universal biopic, but replaced it with a post that reads, "Don't worry about those who talk behind your back, they're behind you for a reason." In the caption of the post, she uses emoji to call Universal Studios and Hollander, the script's author, snakes.
