Tupac Biopic to Begin Shooting February in Atlanta


Morgan Creek Productions and Emmett/Furla Films announced in a Thursday news release they are in final negotiations to partner on the production of “Tupac,” the delayed biopic of late rapper Tupac Shakur.

The picture, to be executive produced by Shakur’s mother, Afeni Shakur, will begin filming in February in Atlanta. Afeni, who also runs Tupac’s estate, has given the film rights to Shakur’s extensive music catalog.

The producers are working with a script by Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft, with a new draft expected, according to the Los Angeles Times. Still no word on who will star as the rapper or who will direct.

In 2011, Morgan Creek was developing the film, with Antoine Fuqua attached to direct, That draft of the film chronicled Shakur’s prolific rise as a rapper and actor, his legal troubles, his time at Death Row Records and, of course, his 1996 killing, which came at the height of the East Coast-West Coast rap rivalry.
