'Madame X' is her recently concert documentary, which was directed by Ricardo Gomes and showcased the pop star’s tour.
In addition, the ‘Like A Virgin’ singer referenced screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson - who wrote ‘Secretary’ - in the hashtags, and Erin featured in one of the photos included in the post.
Last week, Madonna said that the writing process had proven “challenging” and “like psychotherapy".
She said: “Writing my script is the most draining, challenging experience I’ve ever had.
“It’s kind of like psychotherapy in a way, because I have to remember every detail from my childhood till now.
“Remembering all the things that made me decide to be who I am, my journey as an artist, my decision to leave Michigan to go to New York, all the things that happened to me when I was young and naïve, my relationships with my family and friends, watching many of my friends die — sometimes, I have writing sessions where I go to bed and I just want to cry. You know what I mean?
“The thing is, I realise I forgot a lot of things, and reliving, digging deep, trying to recall emotions that I felt in certain moments, both joyful and traumatic experiences?.?.?.?I realise I’ve lived a crazy life.”
It was announced that she will be co-writing the script with Diablo Cody, who won an Academy Award for the 2007 movie ‘Juno’.
Casting has not yet begun but Madonna has been listed as a co-screenwriter, producer and director.
