Marvin Gaye Documentary Movie ‘Marvin, What’s Going On?’ Cued Up (Exclusive)

12 July 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Noah Media Group and Greenlight are developing a documentary movie about the life of soul musician Marvin Gaye.“Marvin, What’s Going On?” centers on Gaye’s creation of his seminal 1971 album “What’s Going On” and marks the first time that his children — Nona, Marvin III and Frankie Gaye — along with his former wife, Janis Gaye, have supported and contributed to such a project.

The film, slated to go into production this year, will be “the defining portrait of this visionary artist and his impeccable album,” according to a statement from the film’s producers.

The album, which was recorded at the height of Detroit’s Motown era, was set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War and the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Gaye produced an album that “challenged America and the world to self-reflect, going on to inspire a generation of artists and music lovers,” the producers said. »
