Madonna Set to Direct New Film 'Ade: A Love Story'
Madonna is set to direct a new film, "Ade: A Love Story," an adaptation of Rebecca Walker's debut novel, which was published last year, NME reports.

Walker is the daughter of Alice Walker, who wrote "The Color Purple." Rebecca's novel is about two American students travelling in Kenya when one of them falls in love with a local man. The film will be the third that Madonna has directed, following 2008's "Filth and Wisdom" and 2011's "W.E." The Guardian reports that the new film will be produced by Bruce Cohen, who worked on 2012's "Silver Linings Playbook." The film is still looking for a screenwriter to adapt the book.

Meanwhile, Madonna recently spoke out about her recent studio sessions with Swedish DJ Avicii. Writing on Twitter and Instagram, earlier this month the legendary pop singer said: "The End of a long week with Viking Leader AKA DJ Virgo AKA Avicii! So many great songs! #icantwait #revolution." The words captioned a photo of the two artists together in the studio.

She also posted a picture of her playing guitar, captioning it: "My Viking Harem! Great Music Great Vibes! We were grinding on that. Wood!" Last week Madonna revealed that she was off to the studio to work with the DJ. The star confirmed she was working on a new album last month.

"Yes, plans are in the works already," she told the Canadian Press, continuing "Don't ask me with who - it's a secret. Top secret." The interviewer then asked Madonna if she had any plans to collaborate with Toronto rapper Drake, to which she quickly responded: "If he'll have me."
