The story will be set in early 1980s New York as Madonna works on her first album, reports The Hollywood Reporter. During the film, the singer struggles to succeed in the music business as a woman, experiences relationship drama and becomes a rising star. Her debut album, Madonna, was released in 1983 and included the hits “Holiday,” “Borderline” and “Lucky Star.”

Reportedly, Michael De Luca, (Fifty Shades of Grey), will produce the project alongside Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment and John Zaozirny of Bellevue Productions.
