Tupac biopic gets a start date!


Finally Afeni Shakur got it together long enough to settle the lawsuit between her production shingle Amaru Entertainment and Morgan’s Creek Entertainment, and the Tupac biopic, which was put on hold indefinitely a year ago, will finally go into production.

Production on the film will start in September and Antoine Fuqua ( Training Day, Brooklyn’s Finest) will sit behind the camera.   And to all of you guys who’ve been told you resemble the slain rapper, now’s the time to start submitting your headshots and resume because Fuqua plans to cast an unknown in the role.   Not only does he want an unknown in the title role, he also wants to fill the cast with unknown actors meaning this has the potential to be a big break for a lot of acting hopefuls.

As for Afeni Shakur, the jury is still out on if she will have a hand in the biopic but having Fuqua behind the wheel is really all one needs.  Well that and the upcoming N.W.A biopic.
