Cher Co-Producing Her Biopic with Universal and Mamma Mia! Producers

Cher has revealed that she will be the next singer to receive the biopic treatment, as she is set to co-produce a film about her life for Universal Pictures. The Academy Award-winning star announced the news about the movie, which is currently untitled, on her Twitter feed yesterday. She tweeted the news in honor of her 75th birthday today.

Later in the tweet, Cher shared that she will also reunite with her friend, screenwriter Eric Roth, on the biopic, after they previously worked together on the 1987 legal thriller, Suspect. The scribe, who most recently penned the script for Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, will next write the screenplay for the planned movie about the performer’s time working in Hollywood.

During the past half century of the entertainer’s career, Cher has sold more than 100 million records, notably after she launched her acclaimed solo career following her divorce and creative split from Sonny Bono. She also pioneered the use of Auto-Tune in the pop genre with her 1998 album, Believe, for which she won the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording for the title track in 2000. She also headlined two successful Las Vegas residencies.

The singer-actress will reunite with Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman, after they produced, and she starred in, Here We Go Again. The 2018 romantic comedy serves as the sequel to the 2008 film adaptation of the hit Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical, Mamma Mia!

Besides starring in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Cher’s filmography also includes Mask and The Witches of Eastwick. Her most acclaimed role was in the 1987 romantic comedy, Moonstruck, for which she won the Oscar and Golden Globe Award for Best Actress the following year.
