What’s going on? Well, how about this? According to reports, a big-budget Marvin Gaye biopic is in the works, produced by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, with Allen Hughes directing. And yes, it’s apparently going to be called What’s Going On.
Between that and the new Sparks Brothers documentary that just came out today, it’s no wonder that superstar publicist Eric Alper and I have music movies on the brain in your Friday episode of Sonic Reducers. Join us as we go behind the scenes of some upcoming music biopics, talk about our favourite rock docs, and debate who could play us when it’s our turn in the spotlight (hint: Eric is still looking for his Billy Duffy). Sonic Reducers: One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know.
