NOT THAT IT WASN’T CONFIRMED BEFORE, IT’S JUST CONFIRMED FRFR NOW!
Producer L.T. Hutton announced that the Tupac Biopic, All Eyez on Me, will be released June 16, 2017 (Pac’s 46th birthday). It has now been released that the biopic will also be picked up by Lionsgate, opening against Disney Cars 3 and Sony’s Rock that Body. The stars from All Eyez on Me include Demetruis Shipp Jr. as Pac with Walking Dead alum Danai Gurira playing his mother Afeni. The director of the biopic serves as Benny Boom. Benny tells XXL Magazine, “What he represents, his image and all of those things mean very different things to very different people. To the kids in the struggle, he means one thing. To women, he’s like the ultimate sex symbol of hip-hop. To those activists who are [about] Black Lives Matter and those organizations, you can still pull things from Tupac lyrics that are messages of things that are happening today. He just means so much. This is why a film is being made about him. He wasn’t just a rapper.”
