Madonna’s been pretty tight-lipped about W.E., the movie’s she’s currently directing and co-wrote. The plot has something to do with King Edward VIII’s affair with American socialite Wallis Simpson (they later married), played by James D’Arcy and Abbie Cornish. And Lourdes Leone will be taking a break from blogging to make her acting debut in the film. It’s Madonna’s second time directing, and she told Interview that this film has a “bigger story” and will be “more layered and complicated” than Filth and Wisdom, her directorial debut.
For her second attempt at directing, Madonna is pulling out the big guns. Some exclusive photos sent to us by a tipster show that she’s getting some high profile high fashion help. Looks like famed fashion photog Steven Klein is giving her Madgesty some advice while on set in Brooklyn last week. Of course it’s not the first time Madonna and Klein have worked together. The two paired up for an exhibition back in 2003, and he shot her for several editorials. Hopefully this bodes well for W.E. making a bigger splash than Filth and Wisdom.
