Madonna to direct 'Ade: A Love Story'
Madonna is attached to direct an adaptation of Rebecca Walker’s novel Adé: A Love Story. The book, which was published last October, tells Walker’s autobiographical story of a biracial college student whose romance with a young Swahili man, Adé, near Kenya is interrupted by civil war.
Walker will produce Adé, along with Bruce Cohen (The Silver Linings Playbook) and Jessica Leventhal, Bruce Cohen Productions’ director of development. No screenwriter is yet attached.
