The much-anticipated Madonna biopic was met with disappointment as it was cancelled by Universal Pictures, leaving a bleak void in the hearts of fans.

The movie, which was first green-lit in 2020 and was set to be directed by the Queen of Pop herself, was scrapped recently, despite the efforts of Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody and playwright Erin Cressida Wilson, who were brought on to write the script.

Despite the addition of up-and-coming star Julia Garner, who won the lead role after grueling auditions, the movie was never able to come to fruition due to ongoing back and forth over the script and Madonna's insistence on retaining control.

This sad outcome is estimated to have left Universal with up to $12 million in expenses and could leave a permanent mark on the film industry.
