Fresh off the highly successful BET biopic ‘The Bobby Brown Story’ comes news of the latest celebrity to get their life story played out on film.

According to fresh reports from Mirror UK, singer Bruno Mars is reportedly set to star in the lead role in an upcoming biopic on the life of the late Prince.

The funky singer has been approached about portraying the Purple Rain legend, right, in a Netflix biopic.

Bruno, 32, is a huge Prince fan and gave a top tribute when he sang Purple Rain at last year’s Grammy awards.

A Netflix movie source said: “Bruno says it will probably be the most nerve-racking move of his career if it happens.

“Prince was one of his idols so to be asked to take on a hefty role like that especially as a debut acting move is full-on.

“The offer has come out of the blue. Bruno used to love acting when he was younger but it’s not an avenue he’s explored.”

This hasn’t been confirmed by Netflix or Mars, but would you be here for this? and is Prince’s story to big to be told on Netflix vs. the big screen?
