Last year, after it was reported that Lenny Kravitz secured the leading role in Marvin Gaye’s biopic, Marvin Gaye’s son, Marvin Gaye III, threatened legal action if the film moved forward in its production. Kravitz was reported as being a long time friend of the soul singer’s son, dropped out of the film and was replaced with Jesse L. Martin. Earlier this month, a first look clip for the much anticipated, Sexual Healing, was released.
By in depth, I mean it should have came with a “spoiler alert” warning. After watching the 5 minute trailer, you can see that the movie is mostly about his life in the 80’s before his tragic murder.
Although no release date has been set, or an “official” trailer released, it’ll be interesting to learn what Gaye’s family thinks about the movie.
