It looks like Florence Pugh could play another real-life celebrity. Madonna has just revealed that the Black Widow star is being considered to play her in the singer's "visual autobiography." Amazingly, it sounds like the Ray of Light singer wants Pugh to get the role!
There is little doubt that Madonna Louise Ciccone is one of the most well-known pop culture figures in history. However, the Material Girl's life story has yet to be made into a film. Luckily, Madonna is already working on that and she has someone in mind to play her.
Madonna and her son David Banda recently spoke to AP (via Yahoo!) where she shared that she is still in the writing process on her "visual autobiography." When asked if Pugh is being considered for the role, Madonna's response was very enthusiastic.
"Uh, I don’t know. We haven’t decided yet, but she’s definitely up there. She’s up there on the list," Madonna said. She then added, "If she’ll have me!"
Playing Madonna would be a great role for Pugh considering that she has portrayed real people in some of her projects. She previously played Robert Bruce's wife Elizabeth de Burgh in Outlaw King and WWE Divas champ Paige in Fighting With My Family.
For now, it has not yet been confirmed if Pugh is interested in playing Madonna but we could be getting an update soon. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
Pugh is set to return as Yelena Belova in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series Hawkeye, which airs on Disney+ on November 24, 2021.
