Antoine Fuqua Sidesteps Bruce Willis For Tupac Biopic

Tuesday, June 1 by

Antoine Fuqua has announced that his next project will be a biopic focusing on the life of rapper Tupac Shakur. Last week it was believed that Fuqua would reunite with Bruce Willis for The Tomb as his next project, but now Fuqua describes that project as "a conversation I’ve been having with Bruce." Another recent conversation between Fuqua and Willis regards Doritos Late Night All Nighter Cheeseburger Flavored Tortilla Chips. How do they make those things taste exactly like a cheeseburger???

Fuqua kept things real with Digital Spy:

"It looks like we’re doing Tupac Shakur‘s movie next in September, that’s what I’ve been starting up and working on now. I’ve been working on that for a while with Morgan Creek and Jim Robinson. I just got the greenlight from him and we’re going in September. I’ve just started to prep that."

The director doesn’t have any casting choices in mind yet, but hopes to find at unknown for the role. Before he even asks, I officially take myself out of the running. I tried to do the Tupac verse from "California Love" at karaoke recently and failed miserably. And my head was way too big for the bandana. On account of my intellect and all.

    The movie about Tupac will be very successful because his fans are just as enthusiastic about his music and life story now as ever before! I have viewed numerous men on youtube submitting their audition performances trying to portray him but the ABSOLUTE best man is Mr. Kenneth Mcdonald! He is a genuinely gifted actor who really puts his heart and soul into it and that is exactly who should play Tupac! I want to ask all of the dedicated fans of Tupac to view ALL of Kenneth’s audition videos and vote him in as the one who should take this role because there is nobody who does it better! Here is a clip of him. Leave a comment and give him a thumbs up! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCeK7x7Wby4
