Tupac Biopic Set for Spring 2014 Shoot
The Tupac film was original set to start filming back in 2011 after a lengthy legal battle between Morgan Creek and the rapper's mother Afeni Shakur. Morgan Creek had sued Shakur, claiming she had continued to negotiate for creative control of the film after signing over rights to her son's music and story. Shakur countersued, claiming she had no deal in place with Morgan Creek. But the dispute was settled out of court and Shakur is now an executive producer on the film. Still no word, however, on who will play the slain rapper in the film or who will direct.
Sidebar: Looking forward to seeing a film on Tupac. I wonder who will play him. Hmm..Anthony Mackie maybe? We'll see.
