Madonna to Helm Her Own Biopic for Universal

Published

on

“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,” Madonna said of Universal’s previous attempts to make a movie about her life and career, and now it seems that the studio is in full agreement, as it’s been confirmed that she will direct its upcoming biopic, and pen it with Jennifer’s Body and Juno writer Diablo Cody.

“I want to convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer — a human being, trying to make her way in this world,” said Madonna in a statement. “The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories, and who better to tell it than me? It’s essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision.”

Universal has been tinkering with the project for years, and a previous script in hand by Elyse Hollander sought to tell the story behind the making of Madonna’s Blonde Ambition album in the early 80s. It was to follow her attempts to get the record released in New York City despite many rejections and dismissals from music industry jags. Since Brett Ratner’s Ratpac production company was behind that effort, you can imagine a lot has changed behind the scenes, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s Amy Pascal is now helping Madonna produce this new project under her Pascal Pictures outfit.

“This movie is an absolute labor of love for me,” added Pascal. “I have known Madonna since we made A League of Their Own together, and I can’t imagine anything more thrilling than collaborating with her and Diablo on bringing her true-life story to the big screen with Donna and our partners at Universal.”

General Hospital Spoilers: Kim Delaney Character is Jackie Templeton, Tristan Rogers Leaks – See Her Shocking PC Connection

Published

General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that we finally have the answer to big casting mystery. Many GH fans have been wondering who Kim Delaney (ex-Jenny Gardner on All My Children) would be playing.

The news of Delaney’s hiring kicked off plenty of speculation, which is always part of the fun when someone’s announced to join the show.

However, it’s also fun to finally nail down the character and start speculating about what stories are brewing. Thanks to Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio), we now know who Delaney will ultimately make her debut as. In a Cameo video, Rogers leaked that Delaney would be playing Jackie Templeton.

That’s a name buried pretty far back in the history books, but you may recognize if you’re a GH history buff or were watching from 1982-1984. That’s when Demi Moore was playing the role of Jackie, who had a relationship with Robert at one point.

Jackie’s romance with Robert faced some speed bumps after Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) brought Holly Sutton (Emma Samms) into the picture. It sounds like Robert and Jackie will cross paths and potentially be involved in a storyline together since Rogers is the one confirming this news.

Sadly, General Hospital viewers shouldn’t expect Holly resolution anytime soon. Rogers suggested Holly’s new faked death was a way to put the story on the backburner again.

The GH actor hinted that it might be revisited in 2021, but he’s not optimistic due to the COVID-19 battle Samms faced and the lingering effects.

In other words, Jackie isn’t showing up as part of some new angle in the Holly storyline. That’s over for the time being.

With that in mind, why is General Hospital bringing back a character from the 80s who had a short shelf life? There has to be a good reason they picked Jackie as opposed to creating a new character.

Maybe the goal was to have a blast-from-the-past character be tied to some newer ones. Based on Jackie’s age and the fact that we don’t know what she’s been up to since 1984, she could still be Harrison Chase’s (Josh Swickard) mother and Hamilton Finn’s (Michael Easton) stepmom.

General Hospital seems to be gearing up to include Gregory Chase (James Read) and his wife for Finn and Anna Devane’s (Finola Hughes) looming nuptials.

If so, they have to cast someone for that mom and stepmother role – and it might as well be Delaney’s Jackie Templeton! It’d actually be an interesting way for the past and present to collide.

Nevertheless, we’d say Jackie’s career might be the main reason she’s coming back. Jackie used to be a top-notch investigative reporter, so she’ll likely be the one who tackles the Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) story. Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) wants to get some national media attention, so Jackie may return to help with that.

Regardless, it’s nice to know for sure who Kim Delaney’s playing! We’ll give you updates as the debut of this Jackie Templeton recast gets closer.

General Hospital spoilers say Delaney’s Jackie should return around early October, so stay tuned. CDL’s your one-stop source for fantastic General Hospital spoilers, updates and news, so don’t forget to pop back in frequently.

Certainly, Zoey has adapted well to her new life in the United States with her doting parents Jennifer Arnold and Bill Kein. Of course, her big brother Will Klein also adores his baby sister. In fact, the two siblings are the best of friends.

The Little Couple’s Zoey Kelin celebrated her birthday with just her mom, dad, and brother. After all, it’s a crazy time for the world especially in Florida where Zoey Klein and her family live. So for now the celebration might be small due to COVID restrictions and Jennifer’s compromised immune system, however, next year’s big double-digit birthday bash should more than compensate for this year’s family-only party.

Birthday Serenade By The Men In Her Life

The Little Couple family makes a big deal about birthdays. It’s all hands on deck to shower the guest of honor with love. This year Zoey’s song was lead by her big brother Will with a little help from her dad. Of course, the serenade was captured on video by proud momma Jen who also joined in on the sing-along.

The Klein kids added their own spin on the song. They added a “cha-cha-cha” after verses. Certainly, they find fun and creative ways to keep themselves entertained. Zoey Klein’s birthday cake was her favorite flavor of chocolate. It was decorated with nine rainbow-colored candles, with a 10th for good luck. Of course, Will helped his little sis blow out all the candles.
