Pop stalwart Prince is plotting a return to the big screen after an 18-year hiatus from acting.

The singer starred in 1986 film Purple Rain and won an OSCAR for its score, but since then he's restricted his movie appearances to small cameo parts.

However, the charismatic performer is eager to test his talents in a starring role again - assuming the right part comes along.

He says, "I never retired from acting in the first place. I had always left the window open.

"I was just waiting for a truly amazing script."
