"The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive."

She went on to say: "There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell it than me.

"It's essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision."

However, as of yet, there has been no confirmed release date or any hint as to who will play the Material Girl songstress.

Chairwoman of Universal Pictures Donna Langley said: "Madonna is the ultimate icon, humanitarian, artist and rebel. With her singular gift of creating art that is as accessible as it is boundary-pushing, she has shaped our culture in a way very few others have.

"It's an incredible honour for everyone at Universal to work alongside her, Diablo, and Amy to bring audiences and dedicated fans around the world her unvarnished story for the first time."
