Tupac Biopic Headed to the Big Screen

Tupac Shakur

Seventeen years after his death, the legendary Tupac Shakur will be resurrected on the big screen in a new biopic.

Morgan Creek Productions and Emmett Furla Films are in final negotiations to partner on the film entitled Tupac, it was announced today.

Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, has signed on as executive producer. Tupac will be produced by James G. Robinson, David Robinson, and LT Hutton along with Randall Emmett and George Furla.

The film, which is reportedly budgeted at $45 million, centers around the life of the hip-hop icon, who was shot and killed in Las Vegas in 1996 at the age of 25.

Production is slated to begin next year in Atlanta. According to Deadline.com, producers have the rights to use Tupac’s musical catalog.

While a biopic has yet to be made, Tupac was previously portrayed on film by Anthony Mackie in Notorious, the 2009 movie about the Notorious B.I.G.

    @Il0veee___, I agree with you. Please do not let the role go to Mackie. Great actor but not as Tupac. Brought nothing to the role.

    I think a new upcoming actor who looks close to him should be casted. Introduce some new talent to the industry.

    About time, damn I miss this guy and his music!!

    “Machiavelli was my tutor Donald Goines, my father figure
    Moms sent me to go play with the drug dealers
    Hits fall, we thug niggaz and we came in packs.
    Every one of niggaz strapped sippin on ‘nac
    In the back, my AR-15
    Thuggin till I die, these streets got me cravin thorazine
    My lyrics are blueprints to money makin
    Fat as that ass that honey shakin”
