Marvin Gaye's family has approved a forthcoming documentary called Marvin, What's Going On? that will focus on the creation of the late singer's 1971 classic effort What's Going On. The film, which is being developed by Noah Media Group and Greenlight, will be "the defining portrait of this visionary artist and his impeccable album,” per the film's producers.
"We would like to express our excitement about the upcoming documentary feature film about our father and the creation of his amazing ‘What’s Going On’ album," Gaye's children -- Nona, Marvin III and Frankie Gaye -- told Variety in a statement. "We are proud that his relevance remains intact, and we look forward to being a part of this cinematic journey."
