Marvin Gaye Bio Pic In The Works [Video]

Well there is some good news that is coming to the forefront as the word has been released that there will be a movie coming out that will be based on an R&B legend Marvin Gaye. Find out who will be playing the role of the crooner after the break!

Lenny Kravitz has signed on for his first leading film role, playing singer Marvin Gaye in a biopic that will be shot next year. The rocker’s publicist Carleen Donovan confirmed the news Tuesday. Now Kravitz is not new to the big screen, as he has appeared in The Hunger Games and Precious. This will however be his first role as the lead character in  a movie. The movie will be directed by Julien Temple and should be released sometime in 2014. This will be interesting to see, since there has been alot of drama centered around Zoe Saldana playing the role of R&B songstress Nina Simone. Hopefully folks will be a little more accepting of this role, since Lenny is an actual singer.
