Alternate Ending Of ‘Juice’ Featuring Tupac Shakur Released
(AllHipHop News) The Hip Hop classic Juice is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
A special Blu-ray edition of the film starring Tupac Shakur was released this week, and the bonus content features an alternate ending for the motion picture.
The final scene with Pac’s character Roland Bishop was also uploaded online.
In the theatrical version, Bishop falls from a building after a rooftop fight with Quincy “Q” Powell (Omar Epps).
The alternate version includes Bishop choosing to die from the drop instead of facing prison like his father.
“He hears the cops coming and he stops struggling. He looks in Q’s eyes and says, ‘I’m not going to jail,'” recalled Juice director Ernest R. Dickerson. “And he let’s go. He’d rather die than go to jail.”
The filmmaker continued, “It was just an attitude that showed that Bishop wasn’t a punk, that he was a force that really had to be reckoned with in the right way.”
In another exclusive clip, Dickerson and Epps discussed working with Shakur on the movie.
The 25th-anniversary Juice Blu-ray/DVD is now available for purchase.
A Digital HD edition will be released on June 13.
