Madonna Finds Distributor for W.E

Madonna's movie W.E., which she co-wrote and directed but does not appear in, has found a U.S. distributor: The Weinstein Company announced that it has acquired the romantic drama about a New York woman (Abbie Cornish) who becomes obsessed with the story of King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson. No word yet on how much the film will delve into all that whole Nazi-sympathizing business. TWC is touting the film as Madonna's "directorial debut of a feature film," which it isn't really, though we can't blame them for wanting to forget 2008's Filth and Wisdom. [PR Newsire]
