You better 'Believe' it: Cher has announced a biopic of her life is in the works.
The 'If I Could Turn Back Time' singer shared the news on Twitter last night, telling followers the movie will be produced by "my friends" Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman, of Mamma Mia! fame.
The announcement came just a day before pop icon Cher's 75th birthday on Thursday [20 May 2021].
"Got terrible headache...Maybe Got over excited"
In a typically zany tweet, the star said: "Ok Universal is Doing Biopic With My Friends JUDY CRAYMER,GARY GOETZMAN PRODUCING. THEYY PRODUCED BOTH MAMMA MIA’S,& MY DEAR DEAR Friend 4 YRS, & OSCAR WINNER..ERIC ROTH IS GOING 2 WRITE IT‼️ FORREST GUMP A STAR IS BORNSUSPECT TO NAME A FEW OF IS FILMS."
The 'Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves singer' later added: "Ok got terrible headache...Maybe Got over excited. Is this another Version Of Going 2 take a Shower."

No, we don't fully understand what she means either. But that's why we love her.
The project is currently untitled and has no lead star attached.
Craymer said of the film (as per Deadline): “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. Her unparalleled success in music film and TV have inspired generations. We could not be happier to tell her story to cinema audiences.”
Cher's film follows the blockbuster success of Freddie Mercury and Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody and Elton John's biopic Rocketman.
Cher has sold over 100 million records worldwide and won the 1988 Best Actress Oscar for 1987's Moonstruck.
