British director Julien Temple has carved an admirable niche for himself, 1988 effort Earth Girls Are Easy standing as an anomaly in a career littered with some of the greatest rock docs ever made. The Great Rock N Roll Swindle. Glastonbury. Oil City Confidential. Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten. They're all Temple films and the prolific director is now tackling a bio-pic on the life of classic soul singer Marvin Gaye.

Titled Midnight Love the film will presumably shoot once Temple has wrapped up on his current documentary project - Children Of The Revolution - and he's got himself a very high profile star, the London Evening Standard breaking word that Lenny Kravitz has signed on to portray the singer.

Named for Gaye's final album, the film will focus on the later part of his life when Gaye was struggling with alcohol and mounting tax problems.

I love Gaye so I'll be following this. I just wish the movie was focusing on the better times in his life as well.
 
Kravitz really surprised me in The Hunger Games, I'll have to check this out.
