Madonna has already delved into the heart of the British Royal family, focusing on the love affair between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson in her latest film W.E, but now she is eyeing up the latest royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, as potential subjects for a future film project, according to the Daily Mirror.
After marrying Guy Richie and moving to the United Kingdom, Madonna has taken a deep interest in the history of the United Kingdom. If I'm going to make myself more comfortable in this country, I'm going to have to learn some of its history, Madonna told the Daily Mail.
Madonna explained that she started with the history of Henry VIII, but when she came across the period of Edward VIII's rule, she was struck by what she discovered. 'I was intrigued and mystified. Why would he do this? Men since the beginning of time have fought to get on the throne. Men are power-seeking animals, so why would this man run away from it? she said about the man who gave up his thrown for the woman he loved.
Now, Madonna is ready to take on the story of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, although she tells the Daily Mirror that it is too early to make their film. I would have to wait a decade first, she said. Madonna thinks highly of Middleton, calling her chic and intelligent.
W.E is Madonna's second directorial endeavor. I was terrified by my first day on set. I saw all these burly crew men looking at me and thought, 'Oh God, I have to tell them what to do every day.' It requires working the left and right side of your brain and surviving on little sleep. It's the hardest thing I've ever done, she told the Daily Mail.
The singer admits asking her ex-husband guy Richie for help with the film, but says in the end she didn't worry too much about what other people would do and focused more on what she wanted to get out of the film.
Madonna won a Golden Globe award on Sunday for her soundtrack Masterpiece that she composed for her film W.E.
