Prince’s music will soon be the inspiration for a fictional narrative. The rights to a number of Prince’s catalog has just been purchased by Universal Pictures, who are planning the movie. Just to be clear, the movie will not be a biopic, but an original film that will use Prince’s music to create the storyline. Being that Purple Rain was somewhat of a biopic, Prince’s estate along with Universal Studios wanted to try something new that was both original and out of the box.
Executives are thinking of something along the lines of “Mamma Mia,” and have already started the search for writers and producers.
Ava DuVernay has her own Prince documentary in the works over at Netflix, expecting to drop 2019.
