According to Deadline, “Rock of Ages” helmer Adam Shankman is set to direct a biopic on Madame Rose, the unconquerable mother of burlesque performer Gypsy Rose Lee and June Havoc, who would – and did – do anything to turn her daughter’s into stars.

Based on the memoirs of Lee, HBO Films’ “Madame Rose” will be executive produced by helmer Shankman and producing partner Jennifer Gigbot.

Tristine Skyler wrote the film.
