Madonna was declined from producing acclaimed new movie ‘Precious’, author Sapphire has revealed.
Sapphire said the Queen of Pop was eager to be associated with the film adapted from 1996 novel Push.
Madonna was almost Mariah Carey’s boss on acclaimed new movie Precious – the pop superstar was among the first people to show an interest in adapting author Sapphire’’s gritty drama into a film.
“There was this really earnest college student with his backpack on who wanted to do his first film, and then Madonna wanted to produce it,” the Daily Express quoted Sapphire as telling Entertainment Weekly magazine.
“I was like, ”Madonna? I don”t think this is her film,”” she added.
The post finally went to moviemaker Lee Daniels who managed to convince her with his credentials.
