Universal Pictures’ Madonna Biopic Adds Julia Garner To Top List

Ozark’s Julia Garner is a top contender to land the titular role of Madonna’s biopic under Universal Pictures.

In a report from Variety, Julia Garner is apparently a favorite among dozens of actresses to portray Madonna in the Universal Pictures biopic.

The screening process must really be rigorous to cast the music icon and image legend who is Madonna. Of course, the multi-award winning singer, songwriter and producer will be writing and directing her own biopic under Universal Pictures. As expected, she will be looking for someone who can capture the essence of her music for the world to see. As the icon has the reputation of constant self-reinvention, her performances are always as physically demanding as they’re musically impressive.

In fact, there is a Madonna image for every decade since the 1980s. And, for this decade, there are no indications that she will stop her romance with music. Because of this. the actress that will take on her role has to fulfill that prowess.

Julia Garner has won 2 primetime Emmy Awards for playing Ruth Langmore in the series Ozark. Furthermore, on top of her Emmy awards are those other Best Actress awards from different award-giving bodies for her other projects such as The Assistant (2019), We Are What We Are (2013) and Electrick Children (2012). Interestingly, Garner’s latest lead role is from the 2022 miniseries Inventing Anna as she plays the Instagram-legendary German heiress Anna Delvey. It’s possible that the miniseries gave the production team a glimpse of a different kind of “Material Girl”. The sass and moves that can be malleable enough to be tweaked into Madonna’s personality.

By Madonna’s words, she hopes to:

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.

Naturally, a good portion of acting chops with huge servings of musicality are therefore required. Previously, other actresses for the most-sought-after role are Florence Pugh, Alexa Demie, and Odessa Young together with Bebe Rexha and Sky Ferreira.
