The Straight Outta Compton director says that Marvin Gaye was ahead of his time.
Fresh off the success of Straight Outta Compton, director F. Gary Gray might already be thinking about his next hit.
The record-breaking filmmaker told TMZ that if he were to work on another biopic, his subject would be the late, great Marvin Gaye.
“All the things he talked about in his albums and what is going on is relevant now,” Gray told TMZ reporters, calling Gaye his favorite artist. “He was ahead of his time. His story is somewhat Shakespearean.”
So does that mean that we can expect a Marvin Gaye biopic? Only time will tell.
