Sources Say ‘Ozark’ Star Julia Garner Might Play Madonna In Upcoming Biopic

Julia Garner is a huge name in Hollywood, thanks to her performances in ‘Ozark‘ and more recently, Inventing Anna, which premiered back in February of 2022.

Her acting skills have been praised by many, and it looks like her skills might have just landed her the role of a lifetime.

According to multiple sources, the 28-year-old actress is the top choice to play Madonna in an upcoming biopic, which is currently set up at Universal Pictures.

The Emmy-winner has been the front-runner since the top of the year but insiders add the reason an offer hasn’t gone out yet is there are still several things in play which include the budget as well as some creative factors which include how long the film is.

Madonna herself is expected to direct the film, and she’s working with a script written by Diablo Cody. According to insiders, Madonna is doing the most when it comes to casting.

She’s been putting potential talent through mini boot camps to test their singing and dancing ability.

We’re not exactly sure when production is expected to begin, but given how much time they’re dedicating to the casting process, it might not be until sometime next year.

‘Ozark’ Star Julia Garner Set To Star In Upcoming Thriller Film ‘Apartment 7A’

Later this month, the final season of ‘Ozark’ will be released on Netflix, and for that we are both excited and a little sad. The series has been consistently great for three seasons, so it’ll be difficult to watch it go.

But the stars of the show will live on. Julia Garner, who stars in the show as Ruth, proved to the world that she could act her butt off.

And thankfully, Hollywood is taking notice. It was announced this week that the 27-year-old actress has signed on to star in Paramount Players’ upcoming thriller, Apartment 7A.

John Krasinski and Allyson Seeger are producing via Sunday Night along with Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes.

Natalie Erika James is attached to direct and co-wrote the latest script with Christian White based off a draft by Skylar James. Alexa Ginsburg is overseeing the project for Sunday Night. Alex Ginno is overseeing for Platinum Dunes. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is being described as a psychological thriller.

Can’t wait to find out more information about this movie. A good thriller is hard to beat, and as stated above, Garner is an incredibly talented actress, so we know she’s more than capable of carrying a film.

We’ll keep you posted as more details become available.

Movie Review: Sin City: A Dame to Kill for (2014) – They Didn’t Mess with a Winning Formula

sin city 3

A lot of my friends don’t understand my fascination with this movie franchise. Whenever I talk Sin City, they think I’m talking about that stupid sitcom with Michael J. Fox. But I’m not. I’m talking the dark, multiple plotlines seamlessly interwoven, star studded quirky, crazy masterpiece that is Sin City. So on hearing that a sequel was coming out, I was one of the first in line to check it out.

There are far too many storylines to summarize here, but expect to see a few favorites from the first film, like Marv (Mickey Rourke) Jessica Alba (as a significantly more edgy Nancy) and Rosiario Dawson as Gail. Also added is a fantastic Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny…pre-face change.

Fans of the original will not be disappointed. The noir is heavy, with black and white, and non-linear storytelling. Multiple intersecting plot points leave you twisting and turning. Watching this movie is a lot like watching someone weave a really complicated (and also incredibly bloody) tapestry. You’ll be surprised where things connect.

The women take charge of their own vendettas this time around, making the movie a bit more fun for female viewers (all 12 of them). Of course, some do well (Eva Green) some do poorly (Nancy) but they all have their own agendas.

Bruce Willis plays a dead person for a second time, and occasionally shows up to wail mournfully at Nancy. I’ll be honest; I teared up a little…just like I did in the first one. Damn you, Bruce Willis.

I will say this movie is nudity heavy, which usually annoys me, but this time it didn’t. The direction is so artistic all the nude parts seemed to fit. The direction might not have changed much since the first, but that’s ok when it’s this well done.

I didn’t think 3D was necessary and seemed like it was just a reason to charge an additional four bucks.

Also, I think that the sole reason for Mickey Rourke getting all that botched surgery was so he could play Marv. I just love that character and Rourke is ideal in the role, probably because he is used to walking around looking like a plastic faced monster. As Marv, he’s charming, bumbling and scary as hell.

Intersecting plots are done well in this screenplay and help us get closure on a couple of other story lines. It’s fast paced, with a lot going on, but it’s clear. The movie has a lot of style and a lot of action, which can be hard to pull off. There’s plenty of violent and gore, and I’m pretty sure this movie only just escaped an NC-17 rating

I’m pleased to say that I enjoyed this one as much as I enjoyed the first, because the producers did one major thing. They didn’t mess with a winning formula. Even though this sequel is coming a bit late, at almost a decade, it’s still worth the watch. Hopefully, they won’t take another 10 years to make a third.
