Universal Pictures has gained the rights to a couple songs from Prince’s catalog.

They are now developing an original film musical, inspired by his music. This film isn’t a continuation of his biographical film Purple Rain which debuted in 1984. Universal felt that the biopic of Prince had already been largely covered.

This new film will include his songs and will be used to drive a fictional narrative. No other details were announced in terms of release date and cast.
