Universal has revealed plans to produce Blond Ambition, a biopic chronicling the early career of pop icon Madonna.

The script, written by Elyse Hollander, was at the top of the 2016 Black List—an industry list that keeps track of popular unproduced screenplays. The story will follow the pop star's career in the early '80s set in New York City and will chronicle the career beginnings of her debut album, Madonna, as well as Like A Virgin—the album which went on to be her most well-known.

Additionally, Michael De Luca, who produced the 2017 Academy Awards and Fifty Shades of Grey, is set to produce the biopic along with Universal. No word yet on who will portray the iconic singer.
