the biopic, “Sexual Healing,” starring Jesse L. Martin, is in production and a first-look trailer surfaced online yesterday. One can only wonder what the Gaye family’s reaction to it is.
Directed by Julien Temple and also starring S. Epatha Merkerson (as Marvin Gaye’s mother, Alberta Cooper Gay), the film chronicles Gaye’s life during the 1980s prior to his untimely demise.
Look for the highly-anticipated biopic’s release to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the icon’s death on April 1, 2014.

S. Epatha Merkerson and Jesse L. Martin

It’s not quite a “Law & Order” reunion, but S. Epatha Merkerson will be teaming up again with former co-star Jesse L. Martin.

Merkerson says she’s been cast to play Martin’s mother in the upcoming Marvin Gaye biopic “Sexual Healing.” Her manager Bob McGowan says production begins in Luxembourg in late March.

According to Billboard Biz:

The movie chronicles the final years of Gaye, who, after years of battling drugs and having parted ways with Motown, exiled himself to Europe. There, he was rescued by promoter Freddy Cousaert, who helped Gaye record his biggest-selling album, “Midnight Love,” which produced the comeback hit “Sexual Healing.”

Gaye’s life was cut short the day before his 45th birthday in 1984 after he was shot to death during an argument with his father.

“More than just being the voice of a generation, Marvin Gaye proved to be its very heartbeat,” Goodman said. “As a filmmaker, I was drawn to tell the story of a human being who was never fully realized, one with faults and foibles and an uncommon grace expressed every time he picked up the microphone.”

Originally, the project was intended to cover a larger portion of Gaye’s life but was refocused on his final years because of rights issues with his Motown-produced records.
