A new biopic on Tupac Shakur is coming!
Morgan Creek Productions and Emmett/Furla Films announced that they are in final negotiations to partner on the production of “Tupac.” The picture will begin filming next year in Atlanta and executive produced by Shakur’s mother, Afeni Shakur.
Gunned down in 1996 in Las Vegas, Shakur’s murder has still not been solved. He remains a huge figure in rap music, and will always be one of the main symbols of the East Coast-West Coast beef that ruled rap for a time in the 1990s, such as Biggie Smalls.
The news release says the film will center on Shakur’s life, but we still don’t know who will star as the rapper or who will direct.
