Well, this is exciting news! Cher is the latest music superstar to get the biopic treatment.
The singer and actress, who turns 75 this week, announced the news on social media, revealing Universal Pictures is backing the movie about her life.
Cher will serve as a producer on the film alongside Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman, known for their work on the Mamma Mia! franchise, which featured the “Goddess of Pop”.
The as-yet-untitled biopic will be written by Oscar-winner Eric Roth, whose films include Forrest Gump, The Insider, and Munich.
