Sadly, Bruno Mars is not playing Prince in a biopic

Over the weekend, a British tabloid called The Daily Mirror claimed that Bruno Mars was “being lined up to play Prince” in a Netflix biopic about the late, great artist. It turns out that none of that is true: Mars’ representative tells the AP that he’s heard of no such thing, while Netflix says it doesn’t have a Prince biopic in development. If anyone’s going to play Prince, though, Mars would hardly be a bad choice, as those who witnessed his simmering cover of “Let’s Go Crazy” at the 2017 Grammys would attest to.
