She thoroughly enjoyed sitting at the helm for “W.E.” in 2011, and now Madonna will give directing another shot.

This time, the Material Girl will work from an adaptation of the novel “Adé: A Love Story” by Rebecca Walker, and the story sounds remarkable.

Walker’s book chronicles a young college student who falls in love with a Swahili man. They plan to get married and move to Kenya for a low-key life.

However, when a civil war erupts, everything is put in jeopardy and they must fight against all odds to stay together.
