Alan Parker confirms movie The Blue Angel with Madonna in the lead role in the 1980s

Talking to The Economist, director Alan Parker confirmed the rumors that in the 1980s he wanted to film a remake of the Marlene Dietrich movie The Blue Angel with Madonna in the lead role. Diane Keaton was keen to produce the movie. Unfortunately it never happened.

I was enthusiastic about making it and we had Madonna and De Niro pegged for the lead roles, but it just never came to anything. Everyone just lost interest in it.
