Though there haven't been any other details surrounding the plot, co-stars or release dates, the film will reportedly feature original music performed by Mars. This deal comes on the heels of the $75 million dollar deal that saw the studio purchase the rights to Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton. This wouldn't be Mars' first tango with the big screen, as he'd previously appeared in Honeymoon in Vegas and provided voice work for Rio 2. So far, the project is still in need of a writer and director.
