While the city of Chicago was snowbound this past weekend, the film version of the Broadway musical that bears that city's name isn't faring much better, at least as far as Madonna fans are concerned.
The Madonna camp reported on Monday that the musical is no longer "an active project" for the star. However, it is an active project for current It-girl Charlize Theron ("Mighty Joe Young," "Celebrity") who has reportedly replaced Goldie Hawn in the film.
Madonna's next film project is director John Schlesinger's ("The Falcon and the Snowman," "Marathon Man"), next project "The Next Best Thing," which will also star Rupert Everett, who penned the script.
On the music front, Madonna is in New York this week to film the video for the new single "Nothing Really Matters" with director Johan Renck, who happens to work with "Ray of Light" director Jonas Akerlund.
Though there's no confirmation yet, a spokeswoman for Madonna says that there's a good chance that Madonna
will hit the road in late summer on an international tour, her first since 1993's "Girlie Show" outing. It's likely that Madonna will play more than the five meager U.S. shows she scheduled six years ago.
