The yet-to-be-named film will be released via Universal Pictures and be written by Oscar Roth (Forrest Gump, A Star is Born), who Cher previously worked with on the film, Suspect.

Cher will serve as co-producer for the film alongside Judy Craymer (MAMMA MIA! The Movie) and Gary Goetzman (MAMMA MIA! The Movie, Greyhound). The three got to know each other during filming of MAMMA MIA! The Movie, which featured Cher in the role of Tanya.

“Gary and I are thrilled to be working with Cher again and this time bringing her empowering and true-life odyssey to the big screen,” said Craymer.

“One cannot help but be drawn to and inspired by Cher’s larger than life talent, fortitude, unique wit, warmth, and vision. Her unparalleled success in music film and tv has inspired generations.”

More information on the title and release date will be released in the coming months.
