    Madonna is "officially" a film director. The Material Girl has found a US distributor for her new film, W.E., so the film will enjoy a domestic release. The Hollywood Reporter says that the Weinstein Co. bought the rights to the film that Madonna both co-wrote and directed.

    W.E. centers around Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII. A release date has yet to be determined.

    While the film is considered Madge's directorial debut, it is actually her feature film directorial debut, as she did helm Filth and Wisdom, an 81-minute long film from 2008. Since that film was barely an hour-and-a-half, making it a short film, it is not considered her feature-length debut.

    Guy Ritchie, her ex-husband and father of her 10-year-old son Rocco, is a noted director. He lensed Sherlock Holmes and Snatch.

    Are you going to check out W.E, directed (and co-written) by Madonna?
