Would Madonna Accept A Role In Sunset Boulevard?

| Filed under: MadonnaFilm Flickers

Hold up! Since when are you thinking about making Sunset Boulevard into a new movie-musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber! That's the most FABOOSH news we've heard all day!

Apparently, Andrew has been trying to get the project up and running, but his first step is to find the best Norma Desmond for the film version. He's top pick? MADONNA!

Can you just IMAGINE?! If we close our eyes and dream real hard, we can actually hear her sing a few bars of As If We Never Said Goodbye!!!

However, there is a small problem - Madge isn't taking his calls!!! According to reports, Andrew has tried and tried, but Madonna supposedly isn't interested!

But, but, but…WHY?!

Oh please! Just hear the man out! Just think - the last time you did a musical, you won a Golden Globe! Maybe that award deserves a friend!!!!

Think about it!

P.S. - Piers Morgan said on this show this week that he tried to reach out to her in an effort to hear Andrew out. See! Even HE wants her to do it!!!

    you really can't imagine why? Because the part of Norma Desmond is a HAS BEEN ACTRESS. Do you think Madonna is thrilled that that's the type of part she's been asked to play? bitch, please!

    And who is Piers Morgan again?



  2. 2

    FIRST OFF, PIERS MORGAN IS A JACKASS. THE MORON CALLED OUT MADONNA AND NOW HE WANTS TO BE HER GO BETWEEN DUDE?? FUCK OFF FAT BOY… OF COURSE GRANDONNA WONT TAKE HIS CALL. AS FOR BEING IN A MOVIE MUSICAL… HAVE YALL NOT CHECKED GRANDONNA'S ACTING SKILLS ON HER RESUME??? OUCH!!!!! SHE'S WON LIKE 5 RAZZIE AWARDS OVER HER FILM CAREER. WTF FOR REALZ!!!! TRUTH. BESIDES, GRANDONNA HAS ENUFF PAPER. SHE COULDNT CARE LESS.

    she is not interested because she can't act.



  4. 4

    that would be awesome. but this aint the perfect time. she is busy busy busy. with her own movie and about to record her new album and u know after the record it will be time form promotion and tour. so im sure she would love to do it but her time its so occupated. QUEEN



  6. 6

    She's had too much work done. She can't move her face. And when did Madonna ever make a good movie other than her documentary? She can't act and her face is plastic.



  7. 7

    Are you kidding me, this old ugly ass hag can't act a lick. I wonder if she'll have that dissapearing british accent if she get's the part. HA!



  8. 8

    Maybe she's too vain to play someone that old?



  9. 9

    Gee, it could be because her acting is horrible. I wouldn't pay to watch her stumble through another bad movie. Plus, her fake face is really scary to look at, and her pseudo British accent is appalling. You're from Detroit, honey, so stop trying to act like you're above everyone else.

    Re: poodlewithamohawk – dumbass she did EVITA huge act she won a golden globe moron



  13. 13

    Intelligent readers all know that this is the PERFECT vehicle for Mad Donna!
    I can hear it now, spoken in her fake Limey accent - "All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up."

    Madonna is box office poison, even she knows it



  15. 15

    Intelligent readers all know that Manly Donna won Golden Raspberry awards for worst actress, and worst supporting actress IN THE SAME YEAR! It's TRUE!
    This could be a film noir of EPIC proportions!
    ManDonald = Norma Desmond



  16. 16

    NOT!! Madonna would ruin the film. She can't act, stop letting her make movies. Plus, I think she is too young for the part! Cher would be better in the part…plus she can act!



  17. 17

    Not a Madonna fan, but this is great casting. She can do well in film if she has a strong director willing to stand up to her excesses. Good luck with that.



  18. 18

    In the film Joe Gillis tells Norma, "Norma, you're a woman of 50, now grow up. There's nothing tragic about being 50, not unless you try to be 25." Madonna is the perfect age to play the role, 50 has come and gone for her.



  19. 19

    Re: M: – Your a fucking flaming idiot like you boyfriend perez. She wont the golden globe for the singing you douche, not for her acting. Jennifer Hudson won an Oscar, and it was because she sang, not for her acting. Their's a big difference. Madonna is a no talent hag that is famous because she was/is a nasty whore, and she pandered to you gays.

    Re: thinkingperson – Kudos intelligent reader for seeing the wonderful symmetry. Isn't it also clear that Piers Morgan would be having a little tongue in cheek fun at MadDogma's expense?



  21. 21

    Re: M: – HAH! A goddess, your a fucking retard. She maybe a goddess, the goddess of ugly ass whores who can't sing and get rich of idiotic club kid wannabe's



  22. 22

    Hope she doesn't, I want her back in the studio.



  23. 23

    Why would Madonna want to play an old has-been actress? That's her worst nightmare… Just give the role to Glenn Close, she'll gladly take it.



  24. 24

    Re: M:

    They were actually gonna ask Lady GaGa but since she can't sell out shows in the UK they figured Madonna could do it.



  25. 25

    Re: M: – The nominations for the 2011 Globes drew initial skepticism, as the Foreign Press Association nominated both Burlesque and The Tourist in its Best Musical/Comedy category, despite the critical failures of both films. The skepticism turned to outrage when news surfaced that Sony, the distributor of Burlesque, had "treated" Globes voters to an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas, culminating in a concert by Cher, the film's star. Oh, and by the way, Pia Zadora won in 1981. Have fun watching the 2012 Golden Globes. Hugs and Kisses to you "M"! ~ Dumbass

    oh is see now piers morgan wants to kiss madonna ass now. didn't he call out madonna of course madonna said no. glen close or cher.

    Madonna is a great choice.. she was Fab in Evita!! I think she should take it but she is probably just worried about being to shreds by the critics. If Madonna isn't up for it, I'm sure Glenn Close and Patti Lupone would jump on it…. On second though, Patti hates Andrew so probably wouldn't… Glenn, looks like you are up and get ready for that long awaited Oscar!!!

    It should go to Meryl Streep or Elaine Paige anyway. This is a heavy duty acting and singing role. You need somebody with major acting chops. Besides, it takes place in the '50's and Madonna is too contemporary. Patti Lupone would be great, too, but she had a falling out with Weber a long time ago.



  29. 29

    She was horrible in Evita. I am sure that she can not pull off Norma Desmond! I know that she won a golden globe but that does not mean a thing when it comes to acting in a musical movie. After all Jennifer Hudson won an Oscar and she is a horrible actress also.



  30. 30

    Can you take your gay off long enough to realize that Madonna can't act OR sing? Seriously, this part is meant for someone with strong pipes and acting chops. She would RUIN "Sunset Boulevard" the same way she RUINED "Evita." You have to have a powerhouse voice, the way Patti LuPone or even Glenn Close did. Madonna can barely warble her music.



  31. 31

    Burlesque made over $100.000.000 in ww box office the DVD sold 1.200.000 in only 3 weeks bringing anther 25.000.000 to the film the soundtrack still sellin so will be great to see the queen of pop doing musical it will be epic like xtina did in burlesque just a beautiful hot , sexy job;$)



  32. 32

    Madonna IS Norma Desmond. She should take the role.

  33. @v@ says – reply to this


    33

    I don't blame her if she actually were avoiding. She's been vilified over every film she's ever done apart from maybe Evita. Wouldn't she be choice in the LIVE
    role on stage? She does live very well, and would be larger than life not to mention a cause celebre.



  34. 34

    I would watch that so FAST!



  35. 35

    Madonna is worth well over a billion dollars. So she obviously doesn't need the money. Music is her forte, particularly touring, as she has the highest grossing tour of all time by a solo artist. People are waiting for a new album and tour, so that should be the focus. As far as movies go, she's directing now, not acting. But people need to give her credit for Evita. It made money at the box office, and earned critical praise, leading to a Golden Globe for Best Actress. So saying she couldn't do Sunset Boulevard is wrong. She could do the part successfully, but probably won't. She has already said she is eager to get back in the studio, and is already seeking the right collaborators and producers for her next album. Being a living legend must be hard…..

    i would love to see madonna act in a movie again. she does a good job

    BRITNEY SPEARS FEMME FATALE DEBUTS AT #1 THIS WEEK making BRITNEY SPERAS the first female ever to have six No.1 album debuts, and marks the second biggest album debut of the year but Mario does not want you to know that.

    Re: M:
    Most people seem to forget there are two best actress categories at the Golden Globes: Best Actress in a Drama and Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy. Madonna won the latter. Not trying to diminish her accomplishment, and I think she did fabulous in Evita, but to me, it was a like a 2 hour Madonna music video, a format in which Madonna always shines. As an actress, well that's a different story (but I did like her in A League Of Their Own).

    Re: M: – winning a golden globe means nothing. all u have to do is pay them in someway and u get your golden globe. pia zadora won a golden globe for a movie called butterfly. her mega rich husband pretty much bribed the gg people for her to win. watch that movie and tell me if pia zadora can act? the golden globes are a joke. as for madonna, SHE CANT ACT!! PERIOD!! END OF DISCUSSION!! she did her best acting in truth or dare and that was supposed to be a documentary. im looking forward to her upcoming album though.



  40. 40

    Yea, like she was such a hit in Webber's Evita LOL



  41. 41

    This would be the PERFECT role for her. Art imitating life. Norma is washed up hasbeen that is delusional and wants desperately to be releveant and popular again. Sounds like Hagdonna to me. She'll be great in this. Role of a lifetime !



  42. 42

    Re: thinkingperson – Re #18 LMAO TRUE!!!



  43. 43

    Madonna does great in the sideline roles.. this is for her!



  44. 44

    I love Madonna but even I know shes not a very good actress….. her only good roles have been Susan in Desperately Seeking Susan, and only because she was playing herself basically… and Evita which was a unique and wonderful surprise… but is not gonna happen again… so yeah she knows she wont be able to pull it off and would be the target of many tabloids



  45. 45

    Re: SaintThomas92 – get back to sucking off your daddy. lol



  46. 46

    Id rather madonna get her ass back in the studio!! I need some new music please!!!



  47. 47

    DREADFUL just dreadful that anyone can think that Madonna could actually do a better job than Gloria Swanson did…. why is Hollyweird remaking this classic? DREADFUL……

  48. 48

    Isn't she too busy stealing money from people under the guise of 'helping'poor African children …? I mean, this chick is involved in more scams than the New Jersey Mafia !



  49. 49

    WHY? You have to ask WHY? Oh, I don't know. Maybe because she's THE MOST HORRIBLE ACTRESS EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE? BOX OFFICE POISON!
    THAT might be a reason. Pray this bitch NEVER takes ALW's phone calls!
