Madonna is working on a movie project that she hopes will speak to audiences today about sexuality and women’s rights.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the queen of pop revealed that she is working on Loved, an adaptation of Andrew Sean Greer’s novel The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells.
“It touches on a lot of really important topics I’ve always been invested in or championed—fighting for women’s rights, gay rights, civil rights, always fighting for the underdog,” she said.
The novel follows a depressed Greta Wells who, after being prescribed electrotherapy by her doctor, begins to experience traveling through time. Along the way, the book further explores her relationship with gay brother Felix.
“Why does this book appeal to me? Why did I want to adapt it into a screenplay? Because it touches me on so many levels and it deals with so many important topics. Right now, more than ever, it's an extremely timely story to tell," Madonna said.
