Lenny Kravitz is out – and Jesse L. Martin is in to portray iconic soul singer Marvin Gaye in the Julien Temple produced, “Sexual Healing.”

According to Deadline, the film focuses on the time Gaye spent in Europe in the early 1980s, when the soul singer attempted to get his addictions under control and career back on track with the help of British music promoter Freddy Cousaert (Gleason). Gaye was shot by his father and died in Los Angeles on April 1, 1984.

Martin was Marvin in the James Gandolfini version of a movie with the same title five years ago.

According to Eurweb.com, the decision to replace Lenny was actually a legal move. Marvin Gaye III, the late singer’s son, threatened legal action against the filmmakers.

Information from Eurweb.com and Deadline.com contributed to this report.
