IFC takes in Madonna’s ‘Wisdom’

Film unit to release comedic drama in autumn

IFC Entertainment has secured North American rights to Madonna’s directorial debut, “Filth and Wisdom.”

Scripted by Madonna and Dan Cadan, and co-produced by Madonna and Nicola Doring, comedic drama was initially intended as a short. It will unspool in autumn, with a theatrical run coinciding with video-on-demand availability.

Intertwining plotlines track, among other characters, a man who spanks for money, a chemist and a pole dancer.

The material girl had initially contemplated an iTunes release, but instead partnered with IFC.

“She took some interesting risks stylistically that all pay off at the end,” said IFC acquisitions and production veepee Arianna Bocco. “When I saw the film, I felt that it deserved a bigger, wider platform. Madonna and her crew are open to the kind of release we’re going to do, so it was a natural fit.”
