The legendary singer took to her platform of choice, Twitter, to reveal some super exciting news for her diehard fans! As it turns out, a biopic is currently in the works and it is set to detail both Cher ‘s personal life and her career! The announcement was made by the superstar herself, on the eve of her 75th birthday, which was very fitting given the fact that the movie will be depicting her life.
She used this opportunity to even give some details about the project, revealing who is working on it! Cher’s exciting tweet reads: ‘Ok Universal is Doing a Biopic With My Friends JUDY CRAYMER, GARY GOETZMAN PRODUCING. THEY PRODUCED BOTH MAMMA MIA’S AND MY DEAR DEAR Friend 4 YRS, AND OSCAR WINNER..ERIC ROTH IS GOING TO WRITE IT🎂‼️ FORREST GUMP, A STAR IS BORN, SUSPECT, TO JUST NAME A FEW OF HIS FILMS.’ Naturally, as you can imagine, fans were really happy to hear the news so they flooded her comment section with congratulatory and excited messages. At this point in time, the biopic is yet to have an official title or release date but, as the songstress also mentioned in her tweet, Eric Roth, who is an Oscar-winning writer, is working on making it a quality movie. This would not be the first time for them to work together since they also collabed on the classic movie Suspect. Roth is well known for other massive titles, including The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, A Star Is Born and Forest Gump! Not only is the biopic all about her but Cher is also part of the behind the scenes as one of the producers for the project along with Gary Goetzman and Judy Craymer. In a press release, Craymer stated that ‘Gary and I are thrilled to be working with Cher once again and this time to bring her empowering and true-life odyssey to the big screen.
