Dr. Dre Developing a New Marvin Gaye Biopic

Dr. Dre is making a movie about Marvin Gaye.

The 53-year-old rapper – who produced the 2015 film ‘Straight Outta Compton’ about his own early music career – is said to have succeeded where many others have failed as he has secured the rights to Gaye’s music.


According to Variety, Dr. Dre is in the early stages of making the biopic about the ‘Let’s Get It On’ singer, and has signed a deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing to use Gaye’s music in the film.

Prior to this announcement, the likes of F. Gary Gray, Cameron Crowe, James Gandolfini, Scott Rudin, Jamie Foxx, Jesse L. Martin and Lenny Kravitz all failed in getting the family’s blessing.
