Julia Garner may be getting the role of a lifetime with an offer to portray pop icon Madonna in a forthcoming biopic. On June 7, Variety reported that Garner is poised as a frontrunner for the iconic part, bypassing over a dozen candidates being considered. The “Inventing Anna” star’s team is reportedly considering the offer and expected to accept it.

Madonna herself is set to direct the biopic, with Amy Pascal producing. The film, set at Universal Pictures, will follow the pop star’s early days, though no other details — including a production timeline and principal cast — are known at this time.

Other Hollywood starlets who were reportedly in talks to play Madonna include Florence Pugh, “Euphoria” star Alexa Demie, and “The Staircase” actor Odessa Young. Singers Bebe Rexha and Sky Ferreira were also floated around as potential names to join the project as the cultural pioneer, too.

Of the upcoming film, Variety reports that Madonna said she hopes to “convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer — a human being, trying to make her way in this world.” She added: “The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell it than me. It’s essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision.”
