Pop icon Madonna has announced she will direct a film about her own life and career.

The star is also co-writing the movie with Diablo Cody, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Juno and Young Adult.

The script is expected to chart her rise from the slums of New York to global superstardom, via songs such as Like A Virgin and Vogue.

The star said the film would focus on music, adding: "Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive."

The as-yet-untitled project will be Madonna's third as director after 2008's Filth and Wisdom and 2011's WE, which was based around King Edward VIII's affair with Wallis Simpson.
