Tupac Shakur Biopic Coming Soon

Just almost a week after the anniversary of Tupac Shakur’s death, a big announcement came out regarding the late rapper.

It was announced Tupac will be getting honored with a movie about his life. Emmet/Furla/Oasis Films as well as Morgan Creek Productions will be co-financing and co-producing the film. The script is currently being polished up by Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft.

According to Deadline, the filming will hopefully start in February in Atlanta. They will be working with a $45 million budget and have full rights to Tupac’s music catalog.  It’s also being reported that Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur will work as a producer on the film.

This is big news when you consider the fact that people have been trying to get this movie made for a very long time. It’s been close before, but now that they have the money on the table, nothing will stop this movie from getting made.

It’ll certainly be interesting to see who they cast as Tupac in the film. I’m sure there are several actors who would love to have the opportunity to work on this movie.

Who do you want to see in the film? Do you have anyone in mind?
