Madonna is set to direct a biopic titled Taking Flight based on the life of famed ballerina Michaela DePrince.

What else do we need to know? Besides that I’ll be there opening night.

According to People, the story will follow the DePrince’s “incredible journey from being orphaned as a child in war-torn Sierra Leone to becoming a world famous ballerina.”

Here’s what the Queen herself had to say about it:

“Michaela’s journey resonated with me deeply as both an artist and an activist who understands adversity,” the singer said in a statement. “We have a unique opportunity to shed light on Sierra Leone and let Michaela be the voice for all the orphaned children she grew up beside. I am honored to bring her story to life.”

I know I literally just mentioned my enthusiasm for the film, but now that I’ve gotten to this part of the story I had some time to reflect. I’m still going to need M to put forth the new record she’s working on. I’m not here for Diplo-produced ballerina anthems. Also, don’t log onto Twitter and search for the words “Madonna + ballerina.” Unless you like misery.
