Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody movie has been nothing but a huge success around the world. And, that is prompting Universal Pictures to acquire the rights to songs by Prince to create a film around that.
Now, they don’t want to create a biopic as they feel 1984’s Purple Rain does that. Instead they are working to come up with an original movie using the music by Prince. Something like what was done with ABBA’s music and Mamma Mia!
That sounds cool and all, but I think a biopic would be more appropriate. And, I feel like it is easier to mess up aligning these songs with a film that could end up being not that good. Meanwhile, the chances of messing up a cool Prince biopic are minimal – not to mention that it would be a good tribute to the man we all love and miss.
After all, so much happened in the years after Purple Rain came out.
