I’m sure by now everyone has seen “Notorious”, the movie about the late Notorious B.I.G. Now it’s Pac’s turn. Yesterday, Morgan Creek Pictures announced filming of the movie Tupac which will begin shooting sometime between spring and early summer. No lead actor has been announced to play Tupac Shakur in the movie, and a majority of the casting is still yet to begin.
Training Day’s Antoine Fuqua will direct the biopic, while Afeni Shakur, Tupac’s mother, serves as executive producer. Former Ruthless Records A&R, L.T. Hutton also spent time at Death Row Records and will also serve as a producer. Hutton’s Program Pictures works in conjunction with Morgan Creek. During a recent statement Shakur said, “I am confident that Morgan Creek will stay true to the common goal we share of depicting Tupac’s life in a way that will allow the world to see the authenticity of his artistry, his hopes, and his life goals.
There is currently no scheduled release date for Tupac, but sources at Morgan Creek stated the film will be shot on location in Los Angeles, New York, Georgia and Las Vegas and will follow the life and legacy of Shakur, who was murdered in 1996.
