Not So Fast: Marvin Gaye’s Son Wants Dr. Dre To Stop Promoting The Marvin Gaye Biopic Until Rights Have Been Secured

Earlier this week, we shared that Dr. Dre will be bringing Marvin Gaye’s Biopic to the big screens, after sharing with Variety that he has locked in Gaye’s song rights with Sony/ATV Music Publishing.


According to the Blast, Marvin Gaye III states that the announcement about the biopic was done prematurely.


“In regards to the announcement that was made in the media on June 18 as it pertains to a biopic about my father, the legendary iconic singer Marvin Gaye, that is being produced by Dr. Dre, I want to say that it was prematurely announced, therefore I denounce these statements.”



Gaye III also states that he has nothing but love and respect for the hip-hop mogul and is currently discussing Dr. Dre’s participation in the film. As the heir, he has not granted nor secured Dr. Dre the movie rights to the film. Marvin Gaye’s son wants to move towards the biopic but doesn’t want any premature or false information being broadcasted.



“My hope is to have a group of capable and experienced film producers to be involved with the making of a wonderful masterpiece of my dad’s life.”



Hopefully, both parties can come to an agreement and get the production moving.
