Just another one of the many perks to being Her Madgesty's daughter!

Madonna starts shooting the new film about Edward VIII this summer in London, and the Material Girl has found a role for daughter Lola!

"It's not a significant part but it will give her a good taste of life in the movie business," says an insider.

Apparently Lourdes has told Momma Madge she wants "some kind of career in the entertainment industry," and now that Lola's a little older, Madonna's willing to help her gal out!

Cute!

Ewan McGregor To Star In Madonna's Movie!

Filed under: MadonnaFilm FlickersEwan McGregor

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?

The Queen Of Pop Calls In A Favor From The Queen Of England!!

Oh wow!

A bold move, even for her!!

Madonna is directing her second film, W.E. - which involves the 1936 scandal involving Edward VIII and the twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson - and has written to the Queen of England for permission to shoot on location on Royal grounds!

One of Madge's associates says in a statement:

"Madonna is keen to make the film as authentic as possible and would be very grateful if we are allowed to film at certain locations. She loves the UK and holds your Queen in the highest regard."

Girlfriend probably shouldn't hold her breath, though.

A royal courtier says:

"I can't imagine that Her Majesty would make an exception, particularly for a film about Wallis Simpson."

Eh. Worth a shot, right??

Best of luck, Madge!!
