Looks like Maddie Ziegler and Sia can now add a new film project to their growing list of collaborations, because the "Elastic Heart" singer just announced that she’s written and will direct a new film featuring the Dance Moms star.
While speaking at a Venice Film Festival panel, Sia revealed that her new film, Sister, is based on a one-page story she wrote eight years ago, The Hollywood Reporter reveals.

"I was too embarrassed to tell anyone I wanted to make a movie because I thought it would be seen as a vanity project because I was a singer,” Sia says. “And then last year, after I made the 'Chandelier' video, I realized that I was pretty good at directing, so I felt a little bit braver."
With the help of children’s book author Dalles Clayton, Sia transformed the movie’s screenplay in three-and-a-half weeks, and nabbed her favorite dancer as the lead.
The singer hasn’t revealed any further details about the film or its release, but if the duo’s three previous joint projects are any indication, it should be a great one.
