The New Marvin Gaye Or Should I Say The Man Playing Him


 

According to London’s Evening StandardLenny Kravitz has been cast as the legendary Marvin Gaye in an upcoming biopic.  The film, which will be directed by British filmmaker Julian Temple, will focus on Marvin’s late career when he lived in the United Kingdom and struggled with money woes and alcohol addiction.

But just like the upcoming biopics on Nina Simone and Jimi Hendrix, the “family” isn’t on board for the film.  The paper reports that Janis Gaye, Marvin’s second and last wife, has said she feels “very sceptical” about the project.  So far, Marvin’s daughter Nona Gaye (who’s also a singer) hasn’t spoken out about the project.
