Imagine if you could turn back time on Cher's life? Well, you better believe you'll be able to soon enough! 

There's going to be a biopic of Cher. She announced it on the eve of her 75th birthday via a tweet. For those of you who have had the pleasure of seeing a Cher tweet – yes, it was formatted like a Brutalist building as per usual. 

As mentioned there, in that glorious tweet, Universal is creating the biopic. 

The biopic will also feature huge names when it comes to direction and scriptwriting. 

Cher's "DEAR FRIEND" and Oscar-winner Eric Roth will be writing it. He's known for writing Forrest Gump, A Star Is Born, Dune, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and others.

The producers have been confirmed too, it's the Mamma Mia! producers Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman. Where do they link in with Cher? For three points... Yes, that's it! Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which Cher starred in. 

Naturally, fans are speculating who might play Cher in the film. Many are suggesting Cher could play all of the Chers. Chers? Cheri? Whatever the plural is. She probably could do that. 

Others have mentioned the likes of Lady Gaga and Gal Gadot. We'd bet against Madonna though. 

Most of the other details are currently under wraps at the moment, including the cast, the name, and a release date. Anticipation is high though.

In a relative golden age of biopics (by frequency if not quality) this looks like it could be one of the better ones. Other upcoming biopic figures include Bob Dylan, and Elvis Presley. 

In other music news, Primavera Sound have announced a stellar line up for 2022
