Madge is mad on Bad Girls

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

MADONNA is plan­ning a gritty re­make of TV prison drama Bad Girls for her next film project.

The 53-year-old ( above) has just fin­ished di­rect­ing W.E., about Wal­lis Simp­son, King Ed­ward VIII and the UK’s ab­di­ca­tion cri­sis.

Now she wants a change of pace and is look­ing into turn­ing the ITV drama into a Hol­ly­wood flick.

And the wish list for the cast in­cludes Kathy Burke and Keira Knight­ley.

An in­sider said: “It’s early days yet, no firm talks have even taken place.

“Madonna is re­ally busy pro­mot­ing her new film, but she is def­i­nitely in­ter­ested in get­ting in­volved in the Bad Girls project.”

Bad Girls started in 1999 and fea­tured stars such as De­bra Stephen­son and He­len Fraser.
