NEW YORK – USA – Pop star Madonna is to make her next film about tragic British monarch Richard III, her agent has revealed.
Her royal Madgeness will start filming of the biopic in July when she will fly over to the UK for a five month stint.
“I’ve seen the script and the film will be set in a Leicester council car park for some scenes, as well as a muddy field somewhere to depict the battle of Bosworth,” Joel Montestromboli, Madonna’s agent revealed.
Madonna is not known for her acting or directorial skills but she is very protective of her prowess in looking like she can do those two things.
“I go around with an eye piece and look at things from a different angle. It’s going to be great to go back to England again, I really miss certain things like the constant rain, superbug infested hospitals and of course the 100% beef burgers,” Madonna said from her New York apartment yesterday.
Historian Malcolm Jacobian, from Cambridge University, spoke of the news: “She certainly has the arms for the role. Richard III was said to have a withered arm as well as a curved spine. I looked at Madonna’s arms, and was immediately struck at their magnificent grotesqueness.”
