Madonna to Direct Another Film
Thu, 27 Mar 2014 10:11:26
Madonna is putting on her director's hat again! Or at least she will sit in the director's chair again. The pop diva will direct Ade: A Love Story, an adaptation of the debut novel by Rebecca Walker.
Want some intel?
The author is the daughter of The Color Purple author Alice Walker and civil rights lawyer Mel Leventhal.
The novel tracks the story of an American student, 19, traveling with a feminist companion in Africa. She falls in love with a young Muslim man on an island off the coast of Kenya.
Romantic? Not quite, as their plans to wed are interfered with by cultural and political forces.
Madonna, whose directorial debut was the historical love story W.E., and the producers are actively seeking a screenwriter to adapt the book into a screenplay and to bring this film to the big screen.
Does this sound like a film you would watch or a book you'd like to read?
