A Star-Studded New Prince Documentary Featuring Bono, Jagger, More Is In the Works
German film distribution company Ascot Elite Entertainment Group announced today that a new star-studded biographical documentary about Prince is due out next year in Europe. Screendaily and Rolling Stone report that Prince: R U Listening?, directed by Michael Kirk, will chronicle Prince’s career through interviewer with some of his earliest associates and collaborators, as well as better-known bandmates and acquaintances like Bono, Mick Jagger, Billy Idol, Lenny Kravitz and Sheila E.
Though the movie is being produced by United States company 13 Films, no American release date has yet been confirmed. Also planned for next year: a four-day live celebration of Prince’s music at Paisley Park in April called Celebration 2017, featuring members of all of his historic backing bands including the Revolution and the New Power Generation.
While you wait, listen to an unreleased Prince track from the 1999 sessions on last week’s new Prince hits compilation 4Ever.
