Lenny Kravitz off Gaye biopic
By Aly Barchi | Published on Wednesday 6 March 2013
Lenny Kravitz has resigned his starring role in a new Marvin Gaye biopic, apparently backing out over resistance to the divisive film by Gaye’s relatives.
As previously reported, the movie has so far been opposed by the late singer’s ex-wife Janis Hunter and son, Marvin Gaye III, who last year criticised its makers proposal to mainly highlight a “low” time in Gaye’s latter life.
According to Deadline, director Julien Temple is still set to begin filming ‘Sexual Healing’ “later this month”, he having replaced Kravitz with actor Jesse L Martin.
