Madonna to direct third film

Madonna to direct film about Dutch National Ballet star Michaela De Prince

The American singer Madonna (Michigan, 1958) will lead a film about her life, based on autobiographical book Taking Flight (Touching Sky), published in 2014.

Titled, like the memoir, Taking Flight, the film will follow Michaela's now-famous journey from an orphanage in war-torn Sierra Leone to the upper echelons of the ballet world.

"Michaela's life journey struck me deeply as an artist and as an activist who understands adversity". We have a unique opportunity to shed light on Sierra Leone and let Michaela be the voice for all the orphaned children she grew up beside. In 2008, Madonna made documentary I Am Because We Are, on Orphans of Malawi (south-east Africa), where she adopted four children. Her work on the screen has been met with varying degrees of critical and commercial success. Camilla Blackett has previously worked on the likes of Skins, The Newsroom, New Girl, and Fresh Off The Boat. She graduated from the American Ballet Theatre in NY, becoming a professional dancer in the Joburg Ballet in South Africa at the age of 17. She has appeared in the ballet documentary First Position, as well as on Dancing with the Stars, Good Morning America, and Nightline. She fell in love with dance and is now a professional ballerina for the Dutch National Ballet. She also co-wrote 2011's W.E.
