Ava DuVernay will direct a multi-part documentary about late pop legend Prince for Netflix.

The “Selma” and “A Wrinkle In Time” director will be supported by the musician’s estate on the project, using archival footage and previously unreleased material from the singer-songwriter’s archives spanning his entire life, The Times has confirmed.

“Prince was a genius, a joy and a jolt to the senses. He was like no other. He shattered preconceived notions, smashed boundaries, and shared his heart through his music,” the filmmaker tweeted on Tuesday, confirming earlier reports that she had signed on to the project.

“The only way I know how to make this film is with love and great care. I’m honored to do so and grateful,” she added.

According to Deadline, Prince reached out to the “Queen Sugar” creator about working together before his unexpected death in 2016. Over the past several months, DuVernay, editor Spencer Averick and other members of her production team have visited the late artist’s Paisley Park home in Minnesota and studios repeatedly, the website said.
