Madonna Film: God Save the Queen for Real


My colleague Baz Bamgiboye reported from London in Friday’s UK Daily Mail:

“Madonna’s film “W.E.,” a fantasy based on the Abdication Crisis and what became of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, will be full of what one could term pure ‘Madge’ touches.

Madonna, who has become an expert on the constitutional matters of our country through her research for the film, which begins shooting soon, has included some surreal moments in her screenplay.

She has the Sex Pistols song, “Anarchy,” blasting away during a scene set in 1935. In another segment, she has the Duchess, now 70, twisting away to the Sex Pistols’  “God Save The Queen” as her pugs nip at her heels, while her husband, the former King Edward VIII, lies dying on the other side of the room.”

All I can say is, I cannot wait for this movie! Madonna: Action!
