Terrence Howard has high hopes for the forthcoming Marvin Gaye film, where he could portray the soul legend on the big screen.

The Hustle And Flow star confirmed he is in talks with Jerry Maguire director Cameron Crowe to play the late Motown singer, but hopes he can do it justice.

"It's another thing I could fail at miserably, which makes it worthwhile - my brother said to me, a diamond is just a piece of coal that does well under pressure, so I hope I have some of that in me," he said.

Terrence, who is in Cannes promoting his latest film Winnie, where he plays former South African president Nelson Mandela, said he hasn't signed on the dotted line yet.

"Cameron Crowe and I have been in deep talks about doing - there's nothing put on paper, we're just trying to find out artistic bed we can procreate in, but we may do Marvin Gaye at the end of that, so working towards that," he explained.
