Christopher Ciccone To Direct Twist
Teen drama from... Madonna's brother?!?

26 November 2008  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

His name is Christopher Ciccone. He has been, at various stages of his life, an artistic director, a back-up dancer, a dresser, an interior designer, and a stylist. He is now going to be a film director. And, oh yes, we almost forgot - he's Madonna's brother.

Yes, the 48 year-old Ciccone – last seen writing a controversial memoir called Life With My Sister Madonna that contained all sorts of claims and revelations that we’re probably not allowed to repeat here in case we give our legal team a collective heart attack – will call the shots on Twist, a movie for Usonian Entertainment about which little else is known, save that it’s a teen thriller.

We wish Ciccone well with his new enterprise, relatively safe in the knowledge that he couldn’t fare much worse as a director than his big sis – Filth And Wisdom, a scuzzed-up morality tale, hit the festival circuit earlier this year to almost universal derision. Poor Madge – sometimes she just can’t seem to catch an even break.
