It’s been in the making for years, but the Shakur family never gave full permission to make the movie. Apparently, Tupac’s mother, Afeni, had a change of heart recently (as far as legalities and music rights), as the biopic is now ready to start production. One of the film’s producers, Randall Emerett, announced to crew members an initial production start date and a few plot details. It’s also confirmed that some of Tupac’s original music will have a place in the film. And no, this is not another Lifetime special we’re talking. This looks to be the real deal! Who’s ready to see the story of one of rap’s most iconic stars on the big screen?!
