New Tupac Biopic On Hold, Still Needs Script

(AllHipHop News) The rumored Tupac biopic has lost screenwriters, gained directors, lost directors, gained hope, rinsed and repeated since its mid-2010 announcement.

After John Singleton and Training Day  director Antoine Fuqua left the movie within a year of its announcement, Fuqua says the movie is still on.

Citing bad timing of the announcement  Fuqua asserted to The Playlist blog that the movie is not only real but has a deal and is waiting on a script to be hashed 0ut:

“It was announced too soon,” Fuqua lamented. “I have a deal for Tupac, but the script is not there yet, and its being worked on. Somehow someone started talking about it, it got out there and went crazy, but it was always a situation of, let’s make sure we have a great script, and get it right.”

Fuqua stated the movie, originally slated to begin production in Spring of 2011, will focus on “the last few days, that trip from LA to Vegas, and where his head was during that journey.”

Another rumored holdup for the film of the late great lyricist is Fuqua’s desire to cast an unknown for the starring role, a plight he has expressed since 2011. The Academy Award winning director has also had a busy slate as of late with him being attached a Miles Davis biopic starring Don Cheadle and releasing a new movie, Olympus Has Fallen on March 22nd.

    at this point, we know so much about Pac that what would this film reveal to us that we don’t already know…dude was pretty forthcoming about who he was and where he was from

    • that’s not a reason not to make this film.

      • RichFromBX

        It is because it creates a real chance they’ll mess it up…perhaps it’s not a popular opinion but I don’t think Notorious was very good, it was poorly written and acted…I wouldn’t want the same thing done with a Pac flick.

      • Choppa

        I agree, Notorious coulda been don wayyyyyyy better

    • MrNoName2K

      agreed…

  • They need to hurry up and get this movie out because its alot of people who were brainwashed by the media 2Pac was the bad guy of rap in the 90s when he was exposing the industry.

    • I agree

    • Darren Myt Collins

      I don’t want them to Hurry up….I want them to take their time and get it right. I don’t want no cheap ass b-movie about TUPAC. I want and hope it will be on the level of the movie “RAY” , as far as budget and quality and quality actors

  • TEE TWIN CITY

    Gonna be a bager for sure thug life rip PAC

  • EL_BARK

    The film is having problem cause i think people in the industry, dont want to do an honest in depth film on pac for fear of backlash, of his stan and the myth they created regarding his life……… A real film director is not going to compromise his artistic vision to appease to the pac stans. So rather then do the movie with an honest insight, they rather not do it. Why else would they sign on and cancel, also i bet his estate, eants control over it giving it biased like most bio-pic.

    • greenhouse records

      Wat myth would that be. Anytime 2pac name is brought up you hating on the man. Should have known you were gonna post sum negative shit.

      • EL_BARK

        What was negative about my post. I just gave my opinion on why the film was having trouble getting made.

      • greenhouse records

        You called his life a myth fam. I dont think getting murdered is a myth. What myth did they created about his life.

    • Jesus of Nazareth

      They already did a movie with an honest insight you dumb fokk. Where its
      clear he never sold drugs and never got into trouble or was arrested
      before being famous. And he is portrait as an art school dude. Its call
      “Resurrection”. You might have heard of it.

      • EL_BARK

        Anything that pac related i dont pay attention to.
        And i actually wasnt talking bout him being a school boy. We all know lil bishop was soft, i was talking about all this conspiracy garbage that his stan believe, like yourself.

      • greenhouse records

        You dont pay attention to anything pac related but everytime his name is brought up you speak ill of the man plus he dead…smh

      • EL_BARK

        I was refering to his movie resurrection, or listening to his music.
        He ask me did i see it, and i reply no. This is am hip hop site, so if am pac article comes up i speak on it. I gave my honest opinion on why his movie is having trouble and yall got butt-hurt. Like he did when he was in the pen, by them eastside bk niggahs. Lol

      • greenhouse records

        How you speak on a person when you dont know nothing about him…smh

      • Jesus of Nazareth

        So that’s your only issue with it? Nah, there has to be something else. Everyone knows those were the ramblings of a paranoid 24 year old man after the N.Y. incident. And it’s well documented in “Resurrection” and “One Night in Vegas”.

      • EL_BARK

        Pac had no reason to be paranoid, he knew all along why he was attack in quad, & if he really didnt that speak volumes of his street cred. Oops my bad, he wasnt a street niggah, so maybe i understand why he needed big to explain to him, why his own associates got at him… Them blame biggie & puff, start a whole coastal war off his imagination, that resulted in not only his death but biggie as well. pac wasnt paranoid,
        He was a highly intelligent man, & knew exactly what he was doing.
        Then he try to blame the media by saying they started this east coast west coast beef. That the situation is bigger then me. & biggie.

      • Jesus of Nazareth

        You are 100% right. I agree with you in all of that. But Paranoia is not a rational thing. We cant presume to know about the mental stability of another human being. People crack everyday for things that you and me might think is trivial.

  • Cookie Fox

    Mile Davis!!!!! Bio!!! Thats Gone Be Crazy For Sure…

    It’s because Pac was Fake! Pac was Gay as shit doing ballet in acting school living on the east coast in New york! They don’t want that shit in the the movie. Pac was never a thug. He was a backup dancer for digital underground. He never sold drugs. His original rap name was MC new York! Go watch CB4 thats tupacs life!!!

    • dominicancoke

      Shut yo dumb ass up pac kept it real he even stated he never sold drugs like that but dude had heart

    • greenhouse records

      You apparently dont know the meaning of thug…And he already told his life story in his own worlds in his documentary. Stop being a troll.

    • EL_BARK

      Lol yeah anybody with an ounce of common sense knows why this movie is having problems being filmed & produced.

  • dominicancoke

    No disrespect but how muhfukaz give biggie a movie before pac? pac is way more known worldwide i like biggies lyricism but dude said in a rhyme u look so good i suck on your daddys dick n he was down with gay ass mr cee? I dont care if it was a richard pryor joke or not how he get a movie over pac whos story is way more compelling

    • They scared to touch the Panther angle. ( Hollywood )

      • EL_BARK

        Naw edizzle that aint it, they made a panther movie. Lol
        If they tell his story factually, it will make a lot if people mad. Pac whole career on deathrow was a gimmick.

      • I disagree, yes he went to performing arts, but even Meek Mill is far from soft, he may be faking the funk about certain issues ( Kingpin, etc ) but even the soft dudes in Philly & BX aren’t really soft in other areas of the country.

      • EL_BARK

        Lol meek has been slap before, i wouldnt call him tough. Lol
        But i see what you saying, lmao
        Certain hoods breed a different type of soft. Lmao

      • Hahahaa, exactly, different type of soft, is the phrase I was looking for.

        Meek will probably be slapped again.

      • EL_BARK

        Lmao at our soft niggah is tougher then other soft noggahs. Lol

      • SMDH @ our soft ninjaz being tougher than other hard ninjaz!

      • EL_BARK

        True i take a soft bronx niggah over a hard niggah from minnesota anyday.

      • Now they got some hard dudes in Minnesota, but Nebraska?????

      • Jesus of Nazareth

        So you like your dudes hard and from the mid-west?

      • Uh, ah, um…:PAUSE:

        I know some thorough dudes from MN, but “LIKE” is more your style, than mine.

        Still, do you, nothing wrong with you fighting for gay rights, I just doubt this is the proper venue.

      • Jesus of Nazareth

        So you finally came out of the closet you big queen. That’s got to be the most homoerotic comment I have ever seen on this site.

      • EL_BARK

        All i hurt a pac stan feelings. Smh its you telling on yourself,
        Its vkear what we were talking about. Fag

      • Jesus of Nazareth

        What happened? I was just following the flow of the conversation. On that note, what you think about tattooed niggahs? Hahaha

      • Guest

        Funny you say that since Biggie’s biopic is widely consider a big fantasy.

      • EL_BARK

        Biggie film was fairly accurate, what was fantasy about it?

      • Jon

        The Panther movie was an independent film.

  • Abrasive Angel

    I’m a screenwriter. Just tell me what you want in the script and I will get it done just as long as I’m broke off upfront with some residuals on the backend from the domestic and international box office sales. Give me time to research and talk to those closest to him including his mom.

    • EL_BARK

      Surely no one in their right mind is going to take you a serious screen writer, once they read your comment. Ijs

    Bob Marley, Miles Davis and Jimmy Hendrix. People have been trying to get their biopics made for decades. So it’s not a surprise the Pac biopic have not been made yet.
