Madonna Doesn’t Want ‘Misogynistic Men’ Directing Her Biopic, So She’s Doing It Herself

Article here. Excerpt:

'I have a very long script that is really hard for me to make shorter,' she told Variety. 'I’ve been whittling away at it, but it’s like hacking off my limbs. I’ve had an extraordinary life, I must make an extraordinary film.' Madonna went on to explain that she felt strongly about taking the directorial reins on the movie after facing competition from male directors who wanted to control her narrative. 'It was also a preemptive strike because a lot of people were trying to make movies about me,' she said. 'Mostly misogynistic men. So I put my foot in the door and said, "No one’s going to tell my story, but me."
Too right, Madonna! Hollywood still has a sexism problem — especially when it comes to female movie directors. As reported in Forbes - after reaching new highs in 2020, the percentage of women directing top-grossing films declined since 2021, according to the Celluloid Ceiling Report from San Diego State University.'
