“This project means the world to Madonna,” an insider said of the 64-year-old. “Her opinion is that if it’s to be a success, then Julia needs to slip into her mindset and live and breathe everything she does. It’s the ultimate Method acting challenge.”

An insider said the problem is that the Ozark star, who edged out Florence Pugh for the hot role, is in the middle of shooting another film, The Royal Hotel, and the source said the 28-year-old is being driven to distraction.
