Prince Music-Inspired Movie in the Works

Universal Pictures reportedly has picked up the rights to a number of classic songs from the late artist Prince’s catalog and is developing an original film musical inspired by his prolific output.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal is looking to develop an original film that uses Prince songs as signposts, and this will be shepherded by Mike Knobloch, while Universal vp production Sara Scott and creative executive Mika Pryce will oversee the film’s development.

The project will follow the 2016 death of the legendary singer-performer, who sold more than 100 million records worldwide and won eight Grammy Awards, six American Music Awards, a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award for Purple Rain.

Prince was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
