Tupac

EXCLUSIVE: 2Pac Biopic Will Be More Realistic Than “Notorious” Says Producer L.T. Hutton

(AllHipHop Interviews) The world has been waiting to see Hip Hop icon Tupac Shakur’s story on the big screen for years, and a film about the charismatic performer is now officially in the works.

The 2Pac biopic will be directed by accomplished filmmaker John Singleton (Boyz n the Hood, Poetic Justice). Singleton also penned the script along with Jeremy Haft and Ed Gonzalez. The movie is being produced by Morgan Creek Productions and Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films in association with Open Road Films and Program Pictures.

Program Picture’s CEO L.T. Hutton is responsible for taking the film to Morgan Creek after obtaining a first-look deal with the company. Hutton, who spent time working at Death Row Records with Pac, placed the project as his number one priority. Two years later the film is in pre-production with an expected release date of 2015.

AllHipHop.com spoke with Hutton to get the scoop about the upcoming 2Pac movie. The music and movie producer gives details about the direction the film is taking and what fans can expect from its soundtrack.

 

How much time did you spend with Pac before he died?

I actually spent a ton of time with Pac once he came to Death Row. I followed his career and life even before he came to Death Row. Him and Snoop were close, and I’m originally from the Dogg Pound so when he came to Death Row I got to work with him. We had a lot of stuff stacked in the vault. We rocked out real tough.

How far along is the production process of the film at this point?

We’re almost all the way there. People want to know what happened, and why did it take so long. Well, Richard Pryor still isn’t made. Marvin Gaye still isn’t made. Some of the greatest biopics of all time still haven’t been made, so that’s a question for Hollywood on why things take so long. It’s a process. At this point, hopefully we’ll be shooting in a few months. We should have a 2015 release date on the film. We’re pretty much ready to go.

Have you begun casting for the film yet?

We’ve been casting throughout this entire process on the 2Pac role, because that is the main role. It’s so hard to find that type of energy, look, and skills. For the other roles that we have, we’ll begin casting probably within a month.

You mentioned some of the other roles. There are a few famous women that have been attached to 2Pac like Jada Pinkett and Kidada Jones. Will that part of his life be addressed in the film?

I’m not going to disclose exactly who you’re going to see, but you will see a lot of those women that were in his life. We’re covering a lot of deep intimate moments – different sides you won’t see on the Internet.

There’s other women that he talked to after the [1994] shooting. He went to certain people’s houses as soon as he got out of the hospital. You’re going to see a lot of different relationships that he had with various people. Not on a romantic level, just on different types of levels. He had a lot of female friends, so you’ll definitely see some of that stuff.

How is Pac’s complicated relationship with Biggie going to be covered?  

People know bits and pieces. I was fortunate enough to be right in the middle of all of it, so I know exactly what happened. It’s going to be covered like you haven’t seen it before. We’re going to dispel some of the myths about it. I don’t want to give it away, but it’s more realistic than Notorious. It’s not a diss. It’s just the truth.

We play it exactly how it happened which both of them deserve. It was a little bit different than how they portrayed it in that film. This one is going to be organic to show that these two young black men were truly friends before the nonsense.

It’s just a shame what happened, and how something that really could have been resolved, never got resolved. Life is too short for these types of petty beefs. As young black men, we have to be smarter. We give our lives to things that could be worked out. You will get some of those lessons from the story we tell, because it is a tragedy that two young men lost their lives. Not because of the East Coast-West Coast beef, but because of the environment that we lived in at that time.

No one has been prosecuted for Pac’s murder. There’s still a lot of speculation about who was involved in his death. Will the movie explore that topic?

On that topic, I say, “go see the movie.” [laughs] The only thing people know exactly is that Tupac was cut down before his time, and how we deal with that is going to be very exciting.

How involved is Pac’s mother Afeni Shakur in the making of the movie?

She has a huge role. She has approval of a lot of things, and she wants the best portrayal of her son possible. She doesn’t have a problem with any of the truth. She just wants to make sure that everything was told correctly.

Is anyone else from his life directly involved?

Everybody. You put the list out, and there’s really not one person that hasn’t been talked to or involved. It’s a balancing act… one day in 2Pac’s life is a movie. He had so many relationships. Everybody rocked with him. Him, E-40 and Richie Rich’s scenario could be one movie. His relationship with the Outlawz, that’s a movie. His relationship with Kidada, that’s a movie. His relationship with Jada, that’s a movie. All these are individual films have to be cut down to moments to fit into two and a half hours.

What about Dr. Dre and Suge Knight?

I spoke with Dre. We have Dre’s take on it. I talk to Suge every day. This is not a one-sided story. 2Pac had multiple sides, and we would do this movie a disservice if we didn’t have all those sides. You’re going to see the full 360 circumference of Tupac.

We’re going deep. We’re going to what made the man, what fueled the man, what was his passion, what burned inside of him to make him go in the studio like that. He was on a timeframe. One thing I noticed about Pac is that he was on a clock. We want the audience to feel that drive and passion, because that’s what separated him from the pack – his passion, his aggression, his knowledge, his strength.

One of the problems with other biopics is they never show that passion. They never show what even sparked that motivation. You want to know why people do what they do. What makes them tick. In this film, we’re getting into that.

Death Row

Does that mean we’ll get to see parts of Pac’s early life? It seems like that’s the one part of Tupac that has been documented the least – before the fame.

What I’ve explained to everybody is that this won’t be a long music video. We cut a lot of that type of stuff, and got into exactly what you just asked for, because that’s what people want to see. What made him Tupac? We know the famous Tupac. We know all that. We’re going to give you a splash of that too, but we’re spending our chips on that drama of: Who is this guy? Where did he come from? Everything else is out there. You can find that, but what you can’t find is what made this guy who he is – that earlier part, 16, 17 years old.

One of my favorite interviews of 2Pac was the one where he was about 17, and he was looking right into the camera and talking about what he was going to do in his life.

That interview is one interview that I use. I explained to John Singleton when talking about the vision of the film… the thing in that interview you saw a kid that had a vision and a great mind. After the camera stopped rolling, where did he go? He went home to the Marin projects. We show that, and we set that world. We get into how he had dreams outside of his environment.

That’s what I tried to explain to these executives that I worked with. If you’re not giving people information that they can’t go find themselves on YouTube, then there’s no reason to do the film. It has to give information and answer questions on culture. Nine times out of ten, people like Tupac experienced the same thing at the same time.

That’s why people have that deep connection, because he was speaking to the masses at that time – the downtrodden. He was speaking to me, honestly. Those words cut through. I was producing, but told Pac when we first rocked that I heard “Brenda’s Got A Baby” as a Hip Hop fan. And it moved me. So for the people who are looking into this film and don’t have the Hip Hop knowledge, and are only going to draw from this film, our mission is to educate them so when they come out, they really understand what Hip Hop is and that it’s not just music. It was a driving force in changing America.

He wasn’t just Afeni’s son, he was America’s son. He was a product of America. America made that man. I’m a product of what 2Pac fought for – a young, black executive that came from the music world that went into the film world. Being accepted is part of 2Pac’s vision.

It’s pretty well-known that Pac recorded a lot of music before he passed. Will there be any of his unreleased music used in the film or the soundtrack?

Maybe a few unreleased, but they won’t be remixed on the soundtrack. They’ll be originals. A lot of people loved Pac, had a lot of compassion and respect for him, and never got a chance to really rock with him. So it’s a tribute album based on the film. The soundtrack just won’t be a lot of remixes and old songs. Pac in fact won’t be on there, but songs that other artists get to make will.

I got some submissions the other day. One song is called “All Eyez On Me,” from a kid named A.B., that’s absolutely incredible. I got so many songs, it will be like the double album All Eyez On Me. It will be songs from mainstream, marquee artists along with a few other people. Of course, you’ll have Outlawz songs. There’s a Thug Life song. It’s going to be a huge tribute album. It’s going to be fantastic.

The producers of the Tupac movie are James G. Robinson, David Robinson, L.T. Hutton, Randall Emmett, George Furla, and John Singleton. Executive producers are Afeni Shakur, Tom Ortenberg, and Peter Lawson.

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • From the way he explained it, seems very interesting. I really applaud him on mentioning other great biopics that haven’t been made yet, like Marvin Gaye’s & others that are from black American culture. I hope they got insight from Tupacs dad, I saw his account of events on the biggie & Tupacs documentary & he shed some realistic light on pacs life.

He started out as a back up dancer for Digital Underground. He went to acting school.All his friends were white kids. He was a ballet dancer. He never got arrested till after he started rapping. He was from the EAST COAST!!!! he didnt move to cali till he was about 18 where he then lived with a white woman who tutored him and became his manager.

He didnt start selling till he joined death row started beef with rappers like biggie. Than his 4th album out of nowhere sells 9million. So just 1 year after his 3rd album sells 1.5million. His 4th album magically sells 9million. 2pac was overrated!!!!!!!!! He was all hype. Also he was a Studio Gangsta. He was from new york. He was a back up dancer. Went to acting school. He lied in 90% of his rhymes

        Tupac had no priors before he was famous. He was feminine school kid that loved dancing and acting. All that shooting cops and shit was PR to sell records to make you believe he was a Thug. When he was really CB4!!!

    Only question for Hutton is that he said he became tight with Pac after he came to Death Row. How is he going to claim to be bringing out the truth of Big & Pacs history / friendship with out it being from word of mouth or one sided from Pac or his associates? or prove that the events that were shown in Notorious are 100% false.

    Randall Emmet is chasing urban content. Started with 50 and now he’s with Pac. Only problem is Randall picks subjects past the expiration date. A Pac movie would’ve been crazy around the turn of the century. People are really over Pac right now. We’re talking about a demographic with a short attention span. George Furla has deep pockets and Randall obviously knows how to get in them. lol This is a bad joke. Singleton is on board for the check. These people are masters at utilizing brands but not so good at delivering substantive content. Look at all the trash movies Emmett put out with 50. Do you think that’s about to change? Hell no. What’s really sad is these white boys will try to exploit our ignorance by further perpetuating a lie. Pac was no hero or rebel. He was a young dude trying desperately to make it in show biz. He started off trying the positive angle and it didn’t work then he embraced negativity and his career took off. You can’t clean that up. A better movie would be one that encapsulates the choices people face when they want fame and riches. You know, something deeper than rap.

      • THED0N

        u call pac a studio gangster ? he was in the streets his whole life he had alot on his mind and look what he delivered .. not even hitting his prime no where close

      • HipHop1980

        Tupac did grow up poor. But that’s it. Everything else was a LIE!!!!! He was born in raised on the East Coast,He was a good school kid who loved dancing,acting,and music. He was very feminine!!!!! HE never sold drugs or had any priors, HE became famous because he was a backup dancer. Which he never mentioned in none of his rhymes!!! FAKE MC gusto Studio Gangsta!!!! 2pac will never be a real MC in my book. Only non hip hop heads like you praise him.

      • THED0N

        his mom was strung out on crack he hung with dealers killers and prostitutes .. as a child. nigga u dont no nuthin

      • HipHop1980

        His mother was strung out yes. But tupac avoided that life and chose to stay off the streets and go to acting schools because acting was always his number 1 dream. He also loved dancing and music. Also alot of people who knew people stated the same things that I posted. His former manger liela steinberg is the one who exposed him and didn’t like the fake image that he protrayed. Even the director of Juice. Who stated tupac wanted to portray the thug image after watching himself in juice as a way to make money when he was interviewed on the Sway in the morning show. I will find the video interview.

      • Kweli

        I doubt he was gay. As far as a studio gangsta, I don’t give a damn. His music was bangin. This thing in hip hop about keeping it real (which he also popularized) is nonsense.

        Marlon said the exact same thing a couple of years ago on “The Champs with Neal Brennan” podcast. While true, he meant no disrespect, he’s a comedian, and he said it as a friend, and he told Pac the same thing. You don’t get it, do you? This has nothing to do with whether or not I like his music. Completely irrelevant.

        And all this “he never got arrested till…”, Pac said that himself: “I never got a record till I had a record”. Like I said, go sit down somewhere. You ain’t exposing nobody.

      • HipHop1980

        I’m done talking. Go watch CB4!

    • Michael Thompson

      U Do know that all those things u just stated He never hid from his fans right and people like me who grew up listening to Pac know all this? He even said himself that he was horrible at selling drugs. Humpty hump from Digital Underground also produced a lot of records and was on songs like I get around. Pac also had all types of friends: from Bums to Mickey Rourke and even Madonna.

      • HipHop1980

        But who in the general public at the time knew this and if they did know the truth about him being a Studio a gangsta and not a real Thug would they still support him? Like I tell people tupac gained 90% of his fame from his antics like the rape charges,getting arrested,starting beef,spitting at cameras etc… not his music. Tupacs music in the 90’s wasn’t that hot untill he joined Death Row and started beef rappers like Biggie and put out videos like Hit em Up. You want proof? Tupac first 2 albums only went gold when released, His third album sold only 1.5million. That is terrible. Now 1 year later once he released from prison (more antics) joined Deathrow put out Hit em up. All eyez on Me magically sells 9million You don’t find that odd??? Also If you do you research Tupac didn’t win many music awards in the 90’s. You know why? I’ll tell it’s because his music during the time was just ok especially compared to all the amazing rappers/Antics we had back in the 90’s.

      • Michael Thompson

        On a number of occasions in interviews he have said he wasn’t a gangster. Everything he stood for like thug life were acronyms for other things like with N.I.G.G.A = Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished. and U do know before he was even as famous in 93 before death row he got off for shooting two off duty cops for attacking an unarmed man right. that had nothing to do with trying to be a fake thug but trying to help a helpless man. Also throughout his stardom he practiced what he preached by even letting poor people live in some of his many mansions. Death Row was a huge Label of course he had more publicity. Look at his own words in his prison interview on youtube of why he went so hard at Big and also that a lot of his music are allegories like something shakespeare or other writers would do. So how is a studio gangster if he’s telling the world that his work are allegories and he has shown that he’s willing to take action outside of the studio and not just on wax? also awards mean nothing: Coolio beat out Public enemy for a Grammy, Nas has never won a Grammy, Jimi Hendrix even never got a lot of awards or even a grammy, plus at the time there was East coast bias and Most west coast artist from that time period haven’t won a lot of awards.

    The movie sounds exciting (to see what fueled Pac’s unmatched ambition) and it has a VERY creditable director attached to it! … Then Afeni is also involved too!! … This story has all the ingredients to be GREAT.

    ‘Pac once asked; “How long will they mourn me?” … I can answer that w/ 1 of his other songs … “Until the end of time.”

    *We miss you. Hip-Hop ain’t the same w/out you.

    May you RIP

  • I hope they bring his essence alive like Spike Lee did Malcolm x

  • Fuk u Haterz

    Most intelligent rapper of all time!

  • HipHop1980

    Tupac was a Fake STUDIO GANGSTA! Pac lied about knowing his real father in songs. Pac Never Sold any drugs, his original rap name was MC New York. He started out as a back up dancer for Digital Underground. He went to acting school.All his friends were white kids. He was a ballet dancer. He never got arrested till after he started rapping. He was from the EAST COAST!!!! he didnt move to cali till he was about 18 where he then lived with a white woman who tutored him and became his manager.

    • THED0N

      He was in the streets his whole life jailed for years.. and still delivered dope music all before hitting his prime..

      • HipHop1980

        read my other comment. Also Like I said before. Tupac never got arrest till after he became famous. He never wore bandannas or,has any tattoos etc,, until he became famous. All that shit was front to sell RECORD!!!!!

      • truthrevealer

        @thed0n:disqus too bad biggie then murked pacs legacy forever with the track “long kiss goodnight”.

  • In the Piggie movie they definitely portrayed 2Pac as a menace

    • truthrevealer

      and in the 2fudgepac/2flop “biopic” theyll portray BIG as something of the same sort.

    • no

      he shot a cop in the ass, your argument is invalid

      • HipHop1980

        Tupac had no priors before he was famous. So all of sudden once he becomes famous he’s shooting cops,raping woman, getting tattos,wearing bandannas,getting arrested going to jail etc…

  • HipHop1980

    Tupac was gay!!! Google Tupac and Eskiah. That was tupacs gay boyfriend in High School at Baltimore School of the Arts.

  • Isaac Hayes

    I see a Tupac troll on here being a f@ckBo! Oh well those types are a dime a dozen. I just hope they get this movie right it is hard to tell someone’s life in a 120 minutes. I will give judgement when I see this movie. RIP PAC

    • HipHop1980

      Tupac movie came out in 1993 CB4!

  • Kweli

    AHH on here deleting my comments. Y’all a joke.

  • Jesus Rodriguez

    CAN”T WAIT. Most overrated rapper ever?? What are rappers nowadays saying?

  • Ryan

    Hip hop you say he is a studio gangster lmao 2pac even said it himself in the beginiing after digital underground he is going to paint america a picture of what people go through in the ghetto that doesnt get talked about or adressed and yet america hated that so two cops try to kill him an he shot them an then he got shot. You sound like a hater and really your pathetic. Studio gangster lmao but you shoot two cops right an go to jail. 2pac exposed a lot of what america didnt want you to see. WAKE UP IDIOT

  • truthrevealer

    LMFAO @ all of these lame death row/pac stans congregating on here and writing/typing out multiple paragraphs worth of shit in defense of their beloved “icon”. good thing someone else already came here first to put these idiots in their place so i didnt have to. @hiphop1980:disqus is 100% accurate/correct and has brought up so many good points that whatever pac/death row stans that have read this will certainly be taking L’s for time and time to come.

    anyways, the very simple fact that suge’s name was even once mentioned in this proves that this “biopic” will be horribly one-sided and not accurate nor “realistic” at all. thats all there is to say about that. dont need anymore proof than that lol.
