(Newser) – Madonna will direct her third film, an adaptation of a novel by the daughter of The Color Purple author Alice Walker. Ade: A Love Story, Rebecca Walker's first novel, is about a 19-year-old US student who travels to Africa and falls in love with a Muslim man, according to the Hollywood Reporter; Madonna is a fan of the book. The narrator is similar to Walker herself, having a Christian mother and a Jewish father; Walker's father is civil rights lawyer Mel Leventhal. Madonna previously directed W.E. in 2011 and Filth and Wisdom in 2008.

Good choice of directors since her other two movies were such box office successes and loved by the critics. Yeah, right! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
