It's A Prince Jukebox Musical

'Black Panther' director set to produce the film...

Black Panther director Ryan Coogler has signed on to produce a new film focused on the music of Prince.

Described as a "jukebox musical," the film will feature songs by Prince, five years after Universal acquired the rights to his catalogue. 

The project, which was first announced in 2018, has reportedly now taken a big step forward with Coogler’s involvement. Bryan Edward Hill, known for his work on comic books like Kilmonger and Ultimate Black Panther, has already written a draft of the script.

The untitled project is the second Prince-related feature on the way. A new stage adaptation of his 1984 Oscar-winning film, Purple Rain, is also headed to Broadway.
