A movie based on Prince's music has been approved by Universal Pictures after the rights to use his catalogue of songs were secured.

It is believed that it won’t be a biopic of the singer’s life, but will focus on an original story that uses Prince’s songs to drive forward the plot of the film.

It was agreed that a Prince biopic had largely been covered by Prince’s 1984 movie .

The intention is to create a film with a fictional narrative and negotiations are taking place with potential writers and producers looking to develop a film similar to Mamma Mia, which coincides ABBA’s music into the plot of the film.
