A movie narratively driven by Prince's songs is in the making.

Universal Pictures is developing an original film inspired by his music, along the lines of Mamma Mia, Variety reported.

The production company is said to have acquired the rights to a number of songs from the late singer's catalog.

The film will not be a Prince biopic like the 1984 film Purple Rain, but a fictional narrative, according to reports.

Mike Knobloch, President of global film music and publishing for Universal Pictures, Universal's Vice President of production Sara Scott and creative executive Mika Pryce will be in the anchor roles of the untitled Prince project.

Prince Rogers Nelson died at the age of 57 due to an accidental fentanyl overdose at his Paisley Park recording studio and home in Chanhassen, Minnesota, on April 21, 2016.
