Madonna has shared that the script for her upcoming biopic is nearing completion.

In a series of photos posted to Instagram early this morning (October 20) she wrote: “Grateful for the success of Madame X, that my script is almost finished, and for the support of my beautiful children! While laying on this gorgeous Rug by Alexander McQueen!”

In the sequence of pictures, the pop icon was laying across the carpet with the script infront of her, sporting white shades and her signature lace fingerless glove.

The script was held together in a binder with yellow sticky notes placed throughout the pages.

She also hashtagged the name of ‘Secretary’ screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson, who was spotted in the background of the first picture. 

It was announced last year that Madonna was working on the screenplay with Oscar-winning ‘Juno’ writer Diablo Cody.

Speaking to Associated Press in September, the ‘Material Girl’ singer said ‘Midsommar’ actress Florence Pugh was “on the list” of potential actors who may play her.

She added that it had been a “long and arduous” writing process in deciding which stories to tell and the characters to develop, but also “therapeutic”.

Son David Banda also said that the biopic will be “raw, gritty and honest”. He added: “I can name probably three other people that would make a film about themselves that would be as honest as that.”

The mention of ‘Madame X’ in her Instagram post referenced her recently released concert film which premiered on MTV UK October 8. 

Recorded in Lisbon, Portugal, the documentary followed the singer’s ‘Madame X’ tour which supported her 14th album of the same name.

Speaking about the documentary in a recent press release, she said: “Sharing my vision with global audiences has been profoundly meaningful to me.

“The opportunity to bring its message and the incandescent artistry of all involved to an even wider audience comes at a time when music is so deeply needed to remind us of the sacred bond of our shared humanity.”
