BRENDAN GLEESON TO PLAY MARVIN GAYE'S BELGIAN PAL IN BIOPIC

Saturday, April 27, 2013 - Irish actor Brendan Gleeson and S. Epatha Merkerson have joined the cast of

director Julien Temple's much-anticipated Marvin Gaye biopic.

The film, which stars Jesse L. Martin as the tragic soul legend, was recently picked up by executives at Focus Features International, and the untitled project will be presented to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival in France next month (May13).

Troy star Gleeson will play late promoter Freddy Cousaert, who convinced Gaye to live in Ostend, Belgium toward the end of his career, and Merkerson will play the singer's mother.

Temple's film will focus on the 18 months Gaye spent in Belgium recording

the album Midnight Love.
