Madonna's take on hall-of-famer Emile Griffith
According to today's Sun, Madonna, the Queen of Pop, aka the Material Girl, plans on directing her first feature film, called â€œBlade To The Heart,â€? which explores the fatal Emile Griffith-Benny Paret fight from 1962.
Madge's company, Maverick Entertainment, is behind the project, which will also presumably deal with the ambiguities of Griffith's sexuality, which in part led up to the tragic bout and death of Paret.
The outing will be Madonna's first time behind the camera. Her in front of the camera credits include â€œDesperately Seeking Susanâ€? (1985), â€œA League Of Their Ownâ€? (1992), â€œDick Tracyâ€? (1990), â€œEvitaâ€? (1996), and the remake of â€œSwept Awayâ€? (2002), a flop directed by her husband Guy Ritchie.
In addition to those formal acting credits, Madonna concert films, â€œThe Virgin Tourâ€? (1985), â€œBlond Ambitionâ€? (1990), â€œTruth or Dareâ€? (1991), and â€œThe Girlie Show (1993), etc., establish her bona fides when it comes to exploring the outer limits of polymorphous perversity. Read more at the BLOG
