You can probably split it down the middle on folks like like or dislike Grafitti Bridge. For me, I loved it, Lotusflower movie was over an hour long, I would love to see what that is all about one day.

lotusflower?? u mean 3121 movie ??


No, the violet reality youtube channel has a series called uncovering prince, without a doubt the best interview series out there. One of the interviews was with his creative director during that time, when asked about the 3121 project, he mentioned that 3121 was shelved, and many scenes moved over to the 'completed' and still unreleased lotsuflower film.

I would absolutely love to see this, but you would have to worry about it's quality after it was effectively rejected twice by the labels that were promoting the projects.

Not necessarily, whatever it is about, it is Prince's vision, just like any of his albums are. I would rather his unaltered artistic vision than some outside party trying to make his message sellable by altering things.

UTCM probably would have also been rejected if it wasn't coming off the heals of Purple Rain.

Perhaps one day we will see it, the creative director seemed to love it, he is one of the lucky few that has a copy.

Contrary to what the article says, Universal haven't ''acquired the rights'' to Prince music!

Universal are merely paying a licence fee to licence Prince tracks from the publisher.

The publisher and artist will then earn mechanical royalties.

cool

I hope they do something like this. Yesterday wasn't the first movie to do this w/ The Beatles, either. Let's not forget Across The Universe, plus things like Moulin Rouge. I think a story about a rock star using Prince's music would so fun and interesting. Rocketman is a fictionalized fantasy about Elton, not a proper bio pic. And Yesterday, like Across the Universe and Moulin Rouge, use the songs to push the narrative. It's a great idea. Outside of the popular stuff, Prince has such a deep catalog with great stories in them, that they become highly adaptable to things like this.

Of course, there will be fans who don't like anything, ever, at all, and will poo poo it. But, it's a huge cash influx to the estate just in licensing, plus subsequent album sales (because there's sure to be a soundtrack release), and new or renewed interest in Prince's music.


Incidentally, George Michael is next with Last Christmas being released at Christmas 2019.

The difference being George Michael approved this project and worked on the idea with the director Paul Feig and the writer/actress Emma Thompson.

Naturally this also has official backing from George Michael's estate.

George's family have already said this will contain unreleased music - which will certainly help sell the soundtrack!


cool
