Local press reports on Madonna filming in Islington
Mark Blunden reports on the latest about Madonna filiming “Filth and Wisdom on London local news outlet Islington Tribune – click here for a nice image of Madonna – all smiles under the London sun.
“Madonna has decided to try her hand at a spot of filmmaking and has taken up temporary residence at the south end of Exmouth Market in Clerkenwell for the past couple of days.
Crew working on the film said it is a 30-minute short called Flith and Wisdom.
The elder stateswoman of pop sported a lime green all-in-one tracksuit as the cast filmed in Renton’s chemist.
She popped out briefly to sun herself and eat the odd ice cream.
A large crowd had gathered to grab a sneak glimpse of the American who has made London her home.
They said she shunned the local shops and gourmet restaurants in favour of her luxury camper van, which was parked down a side street.
The film crew said the movie is being shot around London with locations including the Electrowerkz club in Torrens Street, Angel, and Soho.”

“Even a seasoned showbiz hand like Madonna needs a little support when she takes on a new venture. So her director husband Guy Ritchie was on hand to pass on tips as the Queen of Pop clocked up a first: directing a movie.
The 30-minute short Filth And Wisdom features a subject matter that strays not too far from her area of expertise. The superstar singer has revealed the film is based on her own life experiences, but has otherwise kept details of the project hush hush. “I hate to be a tease, but you know how I am,” she told fans.”
“On the shoot in a London street market this week the Material Girl, dressed in a casual green tracksuit teamed with a skull and crossbones cap, was all business giving instructions from the director’s chair.
Characters reportedly include an Indian chemist owner, a Jewish businessman and a failed ballet dancer who takes up pole dancing. Madonna is hoping filming will wrap by July when she aims to be back in the recording studio. Meanwhile, her other half is set to return to film-making with RocknRolla a low budget gangster flick he has written and produced himself.
