Untamed Heart aka Baboon Heart - Madonna was to Star in the 1993 film.
More interesting: Sierchio said that initially Madonna was set to play Tomei’s part, though eventually it didn’t work out. According to Sierchio, director Tony Bill had seen the Material Girl on stage but MGM, the studio, still wanted her to test read. “She got upset and said, ‘Nobody else has to read, so why should I?’ Finally, she agreed to read, but because of a bunch of other things, it ended up not happening,” he said. “The budget was going to be about $12 million because she was a big star. We ended up doing it for around $6 million with Marisa.”
