Marvin Gaye is finally getting the big screen treatment. And this time it’s official. I hear that
“Straight Outta Compton” director F. Gary Gray has made a deal with longtime Motown impresaria and award winning producer Suzanne dePasse as well as Motown founder Berry Gordy. Gaye’s family is said to be involved as well.
There have been past attempts to make a Marvin Gaye film. But without music rights it was impossible. Julien Temple was going to direct “Sexual Healing” with Jesse L. Martin but it beer happened.
Gordy and dePasse’s involvement bodes well for the project. More to come…P.S.no title yet but my choice would be How Sweet it Is.
