A long-delayed Tupac Shakur biopic will begin shooting in June, according to the film’s producer, Randall Emmett. “The script is great and we’re ready to make the movie,” he recently told Collider. “We’re just prepping the logistics.”
Emmett also confirmed that the production company, Morgan Creek, has secured the rights to Tupac’s music catalog. It licensed the rights to the songs after partnering with the rapper’s mother, Afeni Shakur, who will also serve as one of the film’s executive producers.
