Madonna Making Royal Plans

Madonna has been busy these days, and it has nothing to do with her own episode of Glee or her new cougar-ish relationship with Jesus Cruz. She is back in the film studio after a several year hiatus with her new flick, W.E, and this time she’s bringing a historical scandal to life with the story of King Edward VIII and American socialite Wallis Simpson.

The story chronicles the two divorces of Simpson before she fell in love with the King, who was forced to abdicate the throne to marry his scandalous mistress. Madonna will pull a ‘Julie and Julia’ however, when she intertwines this tale with a modern day plot component. No word yet on what or who this will entail.

The Queen of Pop penned the script herself, with the help of her friend Alek Keshishian. Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga has already signed on to play Simpson, while it is rumoured that Ewan McGregor will be portraying the king. Recently single Abbie Cornish is also linked to the film.

Though Madonna recently moved to New York with her kids, she will bring the clan back across the pond for filming. While it unsure whether or not she will make the move permanent, her ex Guy Ritchie is pleased that he will get to spend more time with his kids. We do know that Madonna is serious about her location choice however, as she has even written a letter to the Queen herself asking permission to film on royal grounds. Yes, you heard us, Madonna wrote a letter to the Queen.

We aren’t sure what Madonna was thinking, but we can’t wait to see how the film turns out!
