Madonna has directed a big screen epic "W.E.", about the romance between American socialite Wallis Simpson and British royal Edward VIII, who abdicated the throne in 1936 to marry the divorcee.

The movie is due to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in France next month and reports now suggest Madonna is hard at work writing the soundtrack for "W.E." with producer William Orbit ahead of the picture's big debut.

A source tells Britain's Mail on Sunday, "Madonna is working with William Orbit, who produced her synth-electronica album 'Ray of Light', but it will be quite an adjustment for them. Abel Korzeniowski, who composed the soundtrack to (Colin Firth's movie) 'A Single Man', is on hand to help."

The film will be presented at the Venice film festival in September, even if a trailer will probably be presented in Cannes in presence of Madonna.
