Director of Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman, Dexter Fletcher, has said he would like to tackle a Madonna biopic next.

Fletcher has had a successful couple of years, bringing out Bohemian Rhapsody about the life of Freddie Mercury and Queen in October 2018 and Rocketman about Elton John last week, 22 May 2019.

Yet the director is not done with telling the life stories of global music stars, as he has admitted he would love to work on a film about Madonna next.

The music-enthusiast told Gay Star News: Id do Madonna! That sounds like a real rollercoaster ride! It would be extraordinary.

Madonna, who is now 60, rose to fame in the 1980s and became known as the Queen of Pop for influencing other artists and always experimenting with her music.

Fletcher admitted that making a film about Madonna had not occurred to him before now and he feels unsure whether the Like a Virgin singer would be on board with it.

Yet the Like A Prayer star did not take well to the announcement of a documentary about her early life back in April 2017.

When Universal announced the making of Blonde Ambition, Madonna took to Instagram to say only I can tell my story.

She voiced her opposition to Universals project in her post: Nobody knows what I know and what I have seen.

Only I can tell my story. Anyone else who tries is a charlatan and a fool.

Looking for instant gratification without doing the work.

This is a disease in our society.

Despite this backlash, director Guy Guido went ahead and made another film about Madonna last year.

Released in August 2018, the docudrama is called Madonna and The Breakfast Club and looks at how the singers rise to fame was by no means quick. In fact, it gives an honest account of her struggles when she quit as drummer in the band she was in with her then boyfriend to go it alone.
