Universal Pictures has acquired the rights to develop a musical to the songs of late pop icon, Prince.
Rather than a biopic, the film will tell a story in a similar vein to blockbuster Mamma-Mia – a fictional story inspired by his hits.
While the songs set to appear in the musical are yet to be announced, Universal is reportedly already holding meetings with potential writers.
Entertainment advisor of Prince’s estate Troy Carter is set to executively produce the project.
The news of the forthcoming picture comes after a flurry of Prince-related media in 2018.
In August, Prince’s estate made 23 of the artist’s albums available on all streaming services.
It was followed a month later by Prince’s first posthumous album, Piano & A Microphone 1983.
Another film about the star is currently in the works, which documents Prince’s visit to Wyoming for a date with the 20-year-old winner of MTV’s “Win a Date With Prince” contest in 1986.
