Hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre is working on a new film about Marvin Gaye. The film is still in the early pre-production stages, but rights to Gaye's music have already been secured according to sources. In 2016, the singer's estate approved of a limited series starring Jamie Foxx, the first such project to receive the family's blessing after attempts were made by industry heavyweights such as Cameron Crowe, James Gandolfini and Scott Rudin to produce his life story.
Known for songs like "Trouble Man", "Sexual Healing", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", and "Let's Get It On", the two-time Grammy victor was shot and killed by his own father at the age of 44 in the mid-1980s. The Grammy-winning soul and R&B singer was just 44 years old when he was fatally shot by his father on April 1, 1984, at their Los Angeles home. Variety also notes that Dre is represented by the same legal firm that defended Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams against the Gaye estate in the "Blurred Lines" plagiarism trial in 2015: King, Holmes, Paterno & Soriano. Thicke and Williams to were ordered to pay millions in statutory damages.
