Hollywood has been rubbing their hands together to exploit Prince's life for an unauthorized biography for movies since he was alive. Now that he's gone the vultures are out in ful force to sell these kind of products. It was inevitable. Just hope it's not too crass.

What kind of title is that? "Skipper" would be a better title than that

Even though I have no knowledge about the project I'd imagine it's one of those (Lifetime) bio pics that pop up every month.

Don't act like you won't tune in just to see the horribly camp unfortunate actor they get to serve as a Prince clone. Where is Giorgio these days?

Depending on the era it's set, there's a few different names they could use. If it's focusing on his early life, Skipper could be an ok name but most people won't get the reference and the studio won't want to alienate any potential moviegoers. Simply calling the movie "Prince" would be my own personal choice but it might be cool if it was just called after his symbol so that it has no actual pronunciation. Sure, that could alienate some people too but it's instant publicity and the contradictory nature of it probably sums up the man himself.

Since it will happen whether we want it or not, might as go all in (in Prince's spirit) and defy expectations and aim for a crowning technical achievement.

By that I mean - have a series of famous people portray Prince's facets. When the scene calls for Prince to be laying a firm business hand down, cut to Samuel L. Jackson (in a wig) reminding everybody whose house they're in. When the scene calls for Prince to be all doe eyed - cut to Rihanna with a pencil thin moustache. It would be a casting/editing masterpiece that messes with the audience.

This right here. They have nothing to go on. All it'll be is 'The Kid' from Purple Rain in a bunch of made-up situations.

I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.
