Julia Garner, known for her roles as Ruth Langmore in Ozark and Anna Delvey in Inventing Anna, may be taking on the lead role of Madonna in her upcoming biopic.

According to reports, the 28-year-old actress was offered the role of the pop icon after a “grueling” audition process that needed “a skilled singer and dancer.” Garner supposedly beat the likes of Florence Pugh, Alexa Demie, Odessa Young, Bebe Rexha and Sky Ferreira, and she and her team are currently “considering and expected to accept the offer.” It has not been confirmed as of writing, however.

The forthcoming biopic will follow Madonna’s early days. Universal Pictures will be the studio in charge while Madonna herself will serve as the director. The Queen of Pop previously shared that she hopes the film will “convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer — a human being, trying to make her way in this world. The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive. 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.”

Stay tuned for an official trailer and release date.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Todd Phillips has confirmed a Joker sequel.
