Madonna Making Directorial Debut Through 'Wisdom'


Madonna
Planning earlier to make a short film, Madonna instead is going to be credited as a director of 'Filth and Wisdom' as the screening rights of her film was bought by IFC Entertainment.


Having a reputation as a legendary pop singer and a notable role as Eva Peron in acclaimed drama musical "Evita" apparently is not enough for Madonna as she is now said to be adding a new trade to her resume. According to Variety, the 49-year-old entertainer will be making her directorial debut as IFC Entertainment has attained her film "Filth and Wisdom".

Reportedly, the distributor has obtained the North American rights to the film co-scripted and co-produced by the "Material Girl". Reasoning on IFC's objective in getting the screening rights, Ariana Bocco, the IFC acquisitions and production vice president, stated, "She took some interesting risks stylistically that all pay off at the end. When I saw the film, I felt that it deserved a bigger, wider platform. Madonna and her crew are open to the kind of release we're going to do, so it was a natural fit."

Intended to be a short film, "Wisdom" is a comedic intertwined drama resolving around three distinctive characters, "a man who spanks for money, a chemist and a pole dancer". The film starred by Eugene Hutz, Holly Weston and Vicky McClure is expected to be released sometime in Autumn 2008.
