As per Deadline, they are keeping exact details of the film to themselves, "but it will not be a break-into-song musical like 'Mamma Mia!' and probably more likely a closer cousin to a biopic like 'Bohemian Rhapsody'''.

“Gary and I are thrilled to be working with Cher again and this time bringing her empowering and true life odyssey to the big screen. One cannot help but be drawn to and inspired by Cher’s larger than life talent, fortitude, unique wit, warmth and vision,” Craymer said in a statement.

“Her unparalleled success in music film and TV have inspired generations. We could not be happier to tell her story to cinema audiences.”
