Madonna is going to be directing the upcoming movie Taking Flight!
The movie is going to be based off the life of ballerina Michaela DePrince, from the memoir, “Taking Flight: From War Orphan to Star Ballerina.”
According to THR, “The story follows DePrince’s journey from her life as an orphan in war-torn Sierra Leone to world famous ballerina, currently a soloist at the Dutch National Ballet.”
“Michaela’s journey resonated with me deeply as both an artist and an activist who understands adversity. We have a unique opportunity to shed light on Sierra Leone and let Michaela be the voice for all the orphaned children she grew up beside. I am honored to bring her story to life,” Madonna said in a statement.
Madonna has also directed Filth and Wisdom and W.E.
