NME.com says: "Janis Gaye, the singer’s second and last wife, has said she feels “very sceptical” about the project.
The film is reported to chart the final years of Gaye's life. The soul legend lived in London in the early 1980s, when he was suffering an addiction to alcohol and was embroiled in problems relating to unpaid tax.
Gaye briefly managed to reduce his drug dependency and regain his confidence after relocating to Ostend, Belgium. He died after being shot by his own father in Los Angeles, California on March 31, 1984. "
