Cher’s Biopic to be Produced by Universal Pictures 

Cher, the American actor, singer and television personality, announced on social media on Thursday that Universal Pictures will be producing her biopic that will be written by Oscar-winning writer Eric Roth.

The untitled film will be produced by Judy Craymer, Gary Goetzman, along with Cher.

According to her post, Craymer, Goetzman, and Roth have known Cher for a while.

The film will mark Cher’s second collaboration with Roth, who worked with her on the 1987 film Suspect, the same year in which she won the Academy Award for the Best Actress for her comedy film Moonstruck with Nicholas Cage.


Roth, who also won the Academy Award for the Best Screenplay for Forrest Grump, is currently producing Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio’s upcoming collaboration, Killers of the Flower Moon.

In 2018, Cher, Craymer, and Goetzman collaborated on Universal Pictures’ Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, a sequel to Mamma Mia!


“Gary and I are thrilled to be working with Cher again and this time bringing her empowering and true life odyssey to the big screen. One cannot help but be drawn to and inspired by Cher’s larger than life talent, fortitude, unique wit, warmth and vision,” Craymer told Deadline. “Her unparalleled success in music film and TV have inspired generations. We could not be happier to tell her story to cinema audiences.”

Her hits include albums I Found Someone, If I Could Turn Back Time and Believe. She has sold more than 100 million records in her career, and been a longtime advocate for LGBTQ rights and HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention, among other causes.

Having earned an Emmy Award in 2003 for outstanding variety musical special, a Grammy Award in 2000 for the best dance recording, and an Oscar in 1988, Cher is short of a Tony Award to achieve the highest considered status in the entertainment industry- EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscars, and Tony). She is also the recipient of three Golden Globe Awards, and the Billboard Icon Award, among others.

Cher turned 75 on Friday.
