Is Tupac Alive?
Between a Broadway play, numerous posthumous albums, and a documentary, Tupac is staying busy. Yes, from beyond the grave.
If you remember, the Notorious B.I.G. had a movie come out in 2009. Similarly, Tupac’s movie (tentatively titled “Tupac”) will explore the artist’s short 25 years of life. The draft of the film depicts the rapper’s troubles with the law, Death Row Records, and his infamous 1996 unsolved murder.
A casting call recently launched online calling for lead roles, but no actors have been established yet. In Biggie’s “Notorious,” Tupac was portrayed by Anthony Mackie.
The company trying to produce the movie, Morgan Creek Productions, partnered with Emmett Furla Oasis Films, who will help finance and produce the film.
Production is expected to begin early next year.
