Madonna Adds Up the "Heat"



Madonna is reportedly trying her hands at film directing in "Blade to the Heat."

Not content to rest on her singing and acting laurels, Madonna is now set to flourish a new career in show business as a director. Hollywood.com has reported that the pop diva has been attached to helm a big screen feature entitled "Blade to the Heat", which is currently in development.

Intended to be loosely based on the boxing feud between Emile Griffith and Benny "Kid" Paret in 1959, the project will likely to take focus on the match between the two where Paret received a barrage of punches that sent him into a coma after an alleged slurs toward Griffith's sexuality.

No words yet on the cast line up as well as the scribe, but it is revealed that Persistent Entertainment and Maverick Entertainment will collaborate in financing the movie with Julio Caro serving as the producer.
