Looks like we can make plans to see a couple of our favorite legends' life stories on the big screen. Motown legend Smokey Robinson revealed during a sit-down with Extra's Tanika Ray that the team behind the Oscar-winning biopic Ray is working on a biopic about his life. When put on the spot between what actor could play him, big names like Jesse Williams and Michael Ealy were floated around. Meanwhile, after a judge's ruling, it looks like Prince's estate will be producing a documentary about the late icon. No word on what part of Prince's life the doc will focus on, but it will have creative input from Spotify's Troy Carter, who is an advisor to the estate. Both of these projects should be quite interesting. #SoulOnFilm
