Madonna is set to make her official debut...as a director!
Her Madgesty's film, Filth & Wisdom, is set to make its world premiere this February at the Berlin Film Festival, it has just been announced.
The movie, directed by M, stars Stephen Graham, Richard E. Grant, and Eugene Hutz.
The Queen of Pop is also working on a documentary about Malawi, though a premiere or release date has not yet been set for that.
Some more info on Filth & Wisdom for us Madonnaholics:
"Described as a comedy/drama/musical/romance, the story features a Russian immigrant, ballet school, lap dancing, cultural revolution, poetry, night club, punk rock band, book writer, dominatrix and gypsy.
The Gypsy punk band that appears in the film is portrayed by real-life Gypsy punk band, Gogol Bordello, who also contributed three songs to the film's soundtrack. The band's lead singer, Eugene Hütz, portrays the main character — a character with a philosophical attitude towards life. Madonna allowed additional dialogue written by Eugene himself to be included in the film. Additionally, Gogol Bordello performed "La Isla Bonita" with Madonna at the 2007 Live Earth benefit concert in London, United Kingdom." Also there's word that Timbaland will be filming scenes for madonna's brand new music video, "4 Minutes to Save The World" alongside Justin Timberlake sometime next week. Her cd, "Licorice" will be released sometime in April.
IF MADONNA DOES DIRECTING BETTER THAN GUY, I THINK IT WILL TRULY BE THE END OF THEIR MARRIAGE. GUY HASN'T HAD A HUGE HIT IN QUITE A WHILE, AND I'M SURE HE GETS SICK OF BEING CALLED MADONNA'S HUSBAND.
