With Dr. Dre’s hand in production of the huge success of 2015’s Straight Outta Compton, it looks like Dre is planning to bring to life the life of the late soul singer Marvin Gaye.
According to Variety, the West Coast icon’s film version portraying Gaye’s life is currently in the early stages of development. While there have been several attempts in the past of a biopic, by the likes of Jamie Foxx and others, it is being reported that Dre has received authorization from Marvin Gaye’s estate for the use of music rights in the film.
Dr. Dre’s biopic would be the first approved offering to depict the late singer’s life and career, who was responsible for hits like “What’s Going On,” ‘Sexual Healing,” and “Let’s Get It On.”
