Over the years, Dr. Dre has dipped into film with the Straight Outta Compton biopic and has worked on the “The Defiant Ones” docuseries. Now, the California MC/producer is reportedly working on bringing the life of Marvin Gaye to the bring screen in his latest film venture.
At this point, the movie is still in the works. The rights to use Marvin Gaye’s music in the movie have been locked down from Sony/ATV Music Publishing.
However, Dr. Dre is legally represented by King, Holmes, Paterno & Soriano, the same law firm that defended Robin Thicke and Pharrell during the “Blurred Lines” trial against Gaye’s estate. So this is odd.
