We have been waiting to see if the captivating story of Tupac Shakur would ever make it to the big screen since his untimely death! There has been many discrepancies and road blocks to why the project had not been able to materialize itself but the wait is over!! John Singleton has taken reign of the project.Singleton will begin working on a draft of the screenplay immediately, with an eye toward a summer start date.WE are all pondering who will play Tupac. Anthony Mackie played the slain rap star in the 2009 film Notorious about rival rapper Notorious B.I.G.
Singleton has a special connection to this project and personal loyalty.”Tupac was the guy who I planned to do a lifetime of films with,” Singleton said. “His passing deeply affected my life as well as countless people in this world. His life story is as important to my generation.”
Many people out there like myself are looking forward to this movie and I am confidant that John Singleton will bring this story to true life!!! Will keep everyone updated on this!
