Bruno Mars Set To Play Prince In New Netflix Biopic

Bruno Mars is being lined up to play Prince in a movie about the tragic star’s life.

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.”
