Madonna Movie Generates Positive Buzz!
The film had international distributors bidding like crazy earlier this year and this column can now exclusively reveal that W.E. has caught the interest of The Weinstein Company, who handled The Kings Speech. Harvey and Madonna may be friends, but he wouldnt be interested in this film if it wasnt good. Six years ago, Madonna tried to get Harvey interested in her documentary Im Going to Tell You a Secret, but Harvey felt it was basically an advertisement for Kaballah.
Some may think that The Weinstein Company is unwise to take on another movie that deals with the same topic, but The Kings Speech and W.E. are not similar according to those who have seen it. Madonna has just finished post production on W.E. and will premiere it at the Venice Film Festival in August. My source also confirms that Madonna wont be as involved in the publicity campaign for the movie as much as one would think.
