Dre has reportedly acquired the rights to use Gaye’s music in the film


The film is still in the early stages, but the rights to use Gaye’s music have been acquired. Dre’s project follows several attempts from Hollywood to adapt Gaye’s story into a biopic. 
Most recently, in 2016, it was announced that Jamie Foxx would produce an upcoming TV series about Gaye’s life. It is set to be the first series to be authorized by Gaye’s family.

There have been multiple attempts to give Gaye the biopic treatment.

F. Gary Gray, Cameron Crowe, James Gandolfini, Scott Rudin, and actors including Jesse L.
