For obvious reasons, a Tupac biopic has been kicking around in one form or another for over a decade, however no producer, director, nor star has been able to put together THE definitive work of the slain rapper’s life.

It would seem now that a name long circling the project has finally put rubber to the road, as John Singleton has been announced as director of the upcoming film. It’s clearly not a gun-for-hire gig for Singleton, who directed Tupac Shakur in 1993′s Poetic Justice. Singleton will produce, rewrite, and direct the film.

Expect a reverential tone from Singleton, who said that when he started working with Tupac, he expected “Tupac was the guy who I planned to do a lifetime of films with.”

post-album postid=”212009″ item=”1″]Poor Taylor Lautner. One day he’s a misunderstood werewolf with chipmunk teeth, the next day he’s finding out that the people that have been raising him aren’t his parents. And to add insult to injury, he still has those chipmunk teeth.

This Abduction trailer has us running and hiding with Lautner as he tries to piece together who those people were and why they’re now dead. It would be dismissive and easy to call this a “Bourne for the Twilight set,” which is exactly why I’m so comfortable calling this film a “Bourne for the Twilight set.”

John Singleton appears to have done a decent job with the action here, which leaves the acting in the very capable hands of Lautner. *Trying hard not to giggle*
