Cody wrote the screenplays for films including Juno, Jennifer’s Body and Young Adult, as well as the book for the Alanis Morissette musical Jagged Little Pill.
Now, fans have spotted that Madonna and her long-time manager Guy Oseary have both followed Garner on Instagram.
The actor, who has starred in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, Martha Marcy May Marlene and The Assistant, bears a striking resemblance to a young Madonna which has sparked speculation that they might have their eyes on her for a rumoured biopic.

In 2017, Madonna responded to news that a biopic film called Blond Ambition is in the works.
Written by rising star screenwriter Elyse Hollander, the film’s script topped 2016’s “Black List” – an annual ranking of Hollywood’s best un-produced screenplays. It was picked up by Universal Pictures.
However, the singer took to Twitter to seemingly address the plans, suggesting that the film does not have her approval. She wrote: “Nobody knows what I know and what I have seen. Only I can tell my story. Anyone else who tries is a charlatan and a fool. Looking for instant gratification without doing the work. This is a disease in our society.”
