Ewan McGregor To Star In Madonna's Movie!

Seriously?

Ewan McGregor is the latest actor to sign on to the upcoming Madonna-directed film W.E.

McGregor will play Edward VIII who abdicated the throne in 1936 to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. Vera Farmiga of Up In The Air has already signed on as Wallis and Abbie Cornish will be playing a "present-day" character in the vein of Julie and Julia.

Once again Madonna is DIRECTING and writing the script along with Alec Keshishian.

We absolutely adore her as a musical artist, but we're not holding our breath for a hit film — especially with her track record!

But maybe she'll prove us wrong with these casting choices? What do U think?

    idiot

    is this for real? he's so hot. i want to marry him.

  3. fiera says – reply to this

    I hope so, because I love Ewan!! Abbie Cornish?? Emily Blunt would be a better choice!!



  4. 4

    I'm interested to see how this will play out. But to quote a friend "Why are people still interested in her? I liked her back in the day, but not anymore!"



  5. 5

    Drech in the making… a shame actually as the story SHOULD be done… by someone competent.



  6. 6

    I love me some Ewan! I hope this turns out well. She has a very good actor on her hands. Scots know how to bring it on. I do like the storyline. This should be interesting. Good luck Madonna!



  7. 7

    At this point in time, Madonna's better behind the camera (and I am not talking about her acting).



  8. 8

    Another sure-fire flop from the Queen of Flops.



  9. 9

    Love him and MADONNA IS GOD - this is going to be great!

    I was thinking 'yawn, fail, uh-gain.' Then I saw the lurvly Ewan, and TOTALLY changed my mind. He could make anything good. (Except those horrible Star Wars movies. Those are just shameful!). She's not acting, so it has a shot. One thing I've always admired about Madonna, even though I am by no means a fan at ALL, is her imagination. She envisions things with an interesting perspective, plus she used to fuck/be married to a director, so she has LOTS of on-the-job training! Great subject matter, as well. If it sucks, I will pay small boys to egg her house. Do NOT fuck up The Royals, Madge!



  11. 11

    I love pretty much everything Madonna has done, except her movies she is not a good actress, but behind the scenes she may be great. Please God just don't let it be like "Swept Away"



  12. 12

    No Ewan DON'T DO IT!



  13. 13

    Alec Keshishian the director? Meaning her ex lover? Her manager is also her ex lover. She has slept with all the people that work for her. hoe.



  14. 14

    She is the world's most cringeworthy and tryhard anglophile - her performance after she fell off that horse was OTT embarrassing and this film will be an appalling piece of unresearched crap. Her UK visa should have been revoked as soon as she split with Richie.



  15. 15

    Did you know the royal family made Edward abdicate not because Wallis Simpson was a divorcee but because she was a nazi sympathizer? I hope the movie tells it like it is.. doubt it will though.



  16. 16

    sorry but as a brit this sounds like typical hollywood crap, vera farminga is a beautiful and talented actress and utterly wrong for wallace simpson, who with the best will in the world was not a looker, google her to see if you dont believe me, she had face that could turn milk sour.



  17. 17

    amazing .madonna is a genious mind. she will creat something amazing. and if all those actors signed the contract its because the script she wrotte is amazing. madonna is smart a hard worker. and the performance she had with EVITA was huge. madonna rocks



  18. 18

    Re: jesyrene – madonna is GODESS. most famous female artist ever. money maker. gaga who dear? shes a flop. she wont be here for 10 years dera. madona is on top for 30 years, and madonna is amzing directing cause she directs everything on her career. she will kill it. mnadonna is huge.Re: maxie pad – shut up. madonna makes audiences flash. wherever she goes ppl go crazy. madonna is huge.,for some reason all the young stars imitates her. and like timbaland and robbie williams says she puts on shame all the young artists. madonna fav place is on stage. theres noone better at live performances like the forbes says, madonna is GOD



  19. 19

    queen of pop will be queen of films. shes GOD



  20. 20

    I LOVE HIM



  21. 21

    Sounds very promising and I heard James Franco is also considering joining this project as Abbie's interest.



  22. 22

    Re: SkinSavers
    Your right,but doubt if Madonna will allow truth get in the way of a story
    Also , as much as I like Ewan, it will be very hard for him to play the part of a skinny, alcoholic little weasel, like the Duke



  23. 23

    well no comment if thats worth it, take it else leave it.



  24. 24

    Cun*tdonna now has to butcher films again since she hasn't had a hit in decades. I read that she feels threatened by Gaga's success. That must be why she is attempting to direct again after her last one bombed.



  25. 25

    Re: jesyrene – gaga s tour is a HUGDE FLOP haha ,



  26. 26

    Oh tight, Vera actually looks like Wallis. Go for it!



  27. 27

    he has a big weener..i saw it in a movie….it is HUGE…yum yum



  28. 28

    he has a big weener..i saw it in a movie with tilda swinton…yummedy yumm yumm slurp



  29. 29

    Just cause she's a shit actress doesn't mean she can't direct.
    I mean, let's get real, Madonna is FANTASTIC at telling everyone what to do.
    This could work out. Plus Ewan is hot.



  30. 30

    Re: Brainbug – 4 minutes sold 5 m ww , its was a hit idiot



  31. 31

    I don't know… maybe the movie will be good and will be like Evita or Desperately Seeking Susan, a weird once in a while success in that ambit xD



  32. 32

    Ewan will save the day.



  33. 33

    I hope it's a GREAT film! Ha!



  34. 34

    Wow i can't believe she actually has a great cast with a lot of potential.



  35. 35

    He is so hot! :)



  36. 36

    Intelligent readers all know that Man Donald's last directorial effort was a colossal flop artistically. It's true and many, many reviewers said as much. But nonetheless, her ignorant sheep followers will "flock" to the theatres to be "entertained" (read bored) so that this effort will have the appearance of commercial success.



  37. 37

    Wow! Ewan in it? I love M but i hope she's able to direct correctly. He deserves the best!! What a gorgeous actor!



  38. 38

    Ewan chooses his own scripts wisely - he's always good at portraying the character in the story. I don't care if this movie bombs - I always watch his movies to see his acting. :) Not to mention get a good dose of eye candy. Is there any nudity involved? :P



  39. 39

    You're a liar, Mario/Perez. His rep denied these rumours. He's too talented to do a Madonna movie! Are you kidding?



  40. 40

    Never one for wanting to be outdone by anyone, now Madonna is trying to outdo Streisand by venturing into film directing. Here's a concept: how about showing the world you're worthy of being the best-selling female artist by producing and writing your own album–no co-writers or co-producers. Surely you have it in you.
