A documentary based around the life and career of rock icon Prince is coming to Netflix.
The documentary is still without a title, and very little else is known as of yet. What we do know is the film is being directed by Ava DuVernay. DuVernay is the Oscar-nominated director of Selma and 13th, and has the backing of the Prince estate.
She told Dateline was "honored" and "grateful" to be able to tell Prince's story.

DuVernay also not only has the blessing of the Prince estate, but the singer reached out to her before his death in the hopes of working together. She was also granted full access to the trove Prince of archives recordings, and incredibly, all of the prolific musician's unreleased material.
