The iconic Marvin Gaye is set to have a biopic with director F. Gary Gray ("Set it Off," "The Italian Job") on the helm. The working title is "Marvin: The Life Story of Marvin Gaye" targeted for a 2009 release.

"Blood Diamond's" C. Gaby Mitchell is aboard to write the script.

But like most high-profile Hollywood projects, "Marvin" has a rival film. "Sexual Healing" produced by James Gandolfini.

Gray said his movie will cover Gaye's entire life, from his emergence at Motown through his defiance of Berry Gordy to record "What's Goin' On" and on up to his death.

Gray told Daily Variety, "This is my passion project, the one that I wake up every day thinking about. I'm going to tell a truthful story, and there is no shortage of drama and extreme conflict in a relationship with his father that at its core is Shakespearean and tragic.

"This isn't the average biopic of a rock star wrestling with drugs and women, but a man whose musical awakening became a call to action that questioned critical issues like a costly foreign war, recession, environment, inequality -- issues that are relevant now."

Amen to that!
