For her sophomore directorial effort "W.E.," Madonna is certainly surrounding herself with some solid talent. She's got Abbie Cornish, Oscar Isaac, Andrea Riseborough and James D’Arcy to lead the cast in the highly ambitious film, that tells the parallel stories of the love affair between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, which led to the royal’s abdication, and the contemporary story of a woman, Wally Winthrop, with romantic problems of her own, in addition to an obsession with the life of the Duchess of Windsor. And with all that pomp and circumstance going on, a classical score is unsurprisingly being prepped and the Queen Of Pop has roped in some intriguing collaborators.

Aussie Actress Says 'W.E.' Filmmaker Madonna Is A "Natural" DirectorOK, actress Abbie Cornish went on far too long this weekend during the "Limitless" junket about being a vegetarian (booooring), but the Australian beauty is still tops in our book. Coming off an amazing (and sadly unrecognized turn) in Jane Campion's "Bright Star," Cornish's career has taken some interesting twists and turns. While it feels as if she's gone mainstream or at least is taking off, nabbing roles in Zack Snyder's tentpole ,"Sucker Punch," the high-concept "Limitless," and seemingly finding herself in the mix for several hot projects ("The Great Gatsby," "Prometheus" and many more), Cornish's journey seems to simply be an exploratory one; trying on whatever comes her way that sounds like a new challenge, indie, tentpole or otherwise.

With Brad Pitt (and Angelina Jolie likely in tow) and Sean Penn pretty much guaranteed to hit the Cannes Film Festival this year for Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life," paparazzi are going to be out in full force, and when reports surfaced last week that the Queen Of Pop herself was headed for the Croisette with her latest directorial effort "W.E." we can only imagine that photogs thought they had struck gold. But alas, Madonna won't be hitting the south of France this spring.

OK, so Madonna's first attempt behind the camera "Filth and Wisdom" was a bit of misfire, but damn if Ms. Ciccone isn't raising the stakes for her for sophomore effort "W.E."
