Madonna is to direct a new romantic movie.

The 'Hung Up' hitmaker - who made her directorial debut in 2011 with historical romance 'W.E.' - is to get behind the camera for an adaptation of Rebecca Walker's novel 'Adé: A Love Story', deadline.com reports.

The story is based on the author's experiences and revolves around a college student who falls in love with the title character, a young Swahili man, and they plan to marry and live a simple life in Kenya.

However, their plans are left in jeopardy when a civil war threatens to tear them apart.

Bruce Cohen - best known for his work on 'American Beauty', 'Milk', and 'Silver Linings Playbook' - will produce the film alongside his director of development Jessica Leventhal, and the author.

A screenwriter has not yet been hired for the project, which is currently in the process of putting together financing.

Madonna previously revealed she turned to ex-husbands Guy Ritchie and Sean Penn for advice when directing her first movie.

She said: ''I talked to Sean about making the film, and he's always been supportive of me. I gave the screenplay to Guy and shared the concepts and the stories and the ideas with him because he was interested in it from a historical point of view.

''They never really gave me specific advice about telling the story, but Guy would give me technical advice about cameras or using digital versus film or one cinematographer being better than another - just technical things.''
