Bruno Mars asked to play Prince in upcoming movie

Headlines 11/09/2018

Bruno Mars is currently conquering the world on his 24K Magic World Tour, but it seems as though his biggest challenge is yet to come.

According to The Mirror, the "Chunky" singer has been approached to play legendary artist, Prince, in an upcoming Netflix biopic.

Netflix sources have 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.”

Representatives from both Bruno's team and Prince's estate have not yet responded to the source.

Bruno has had experience playing Prince's music at least, as the singer performed a tribute to the late-icon at the 59th Grammy awards last year. Check it out below:
