The pop icon, 62, took to social media to share a snapshot of herself posing with Wilson, whose credits include the 2002 film Secretary, starring Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Among the collection of images shared was also a photo of several notebooks, which were tagged and dated with a range of years stretching back to the 1970s.

Madonna added the caption: "Sitting with my favorite b***h............I mean writer ✍️Erin Wilson. [Nothing] Touches but our Souls. 💗 #traceyemin #screenplay."

The post comes after it was claimed that Diablo Cody had departed her previously announced role as screenwriter for the story of Madonna's life.

However, as recently as April, EW reported that Cody—who scooped an Academy Award for her screenwriting debut film Juno (2007)—had submitted a completed draft of the biopic to movie studio Universal and moved on to another project.

In August 2020, Madonna also used Instagram as the forum to share that she was working with Cody on her project, when she also posted a video.

"When you're stuck in a house with multiple injuries what do you do? Write a Screenplay with Diablo Cody about [film and music emojis]?" Madonna captioned the video.
