It is the film film approved by the late singer’s family


A new documentary about Marvin Gaye has been announced.

Gabriel Clarke and Torquil Jones will co-direct, with their Noah Media Group partners John McKenna and Victoria Barrell producing, who together made up the team behind documentary, Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans.

Marvin, What’s Going On? will focus on the singer’s creation of his 1971 album, drawing from interviews with Gaye’s fellow Motown artists and previously unseen archive footage.

The film also marks the first time that the Gaye children, along with his former-wife, have supported and contributed to such a project.

In a statement, Gaye’s three children Nona, Marvin III and Frankie Gaye have also spoken about their involvement in the project, “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. We are proud that his relevance remains intact and we look forward to being a part of this cinematic journey.”
