Morgan Creek’s plans to turn the corpse of Tupac Shakur upside-down and shake money out of his pockets hit a snag when director Antoine Fuqua decided to move on from the biopic. Fuqua was in good with Pac’s moms and if he were to leave, the project would spiral into tailspin. So Morgan Creek had no choice but to step up.

The studio has now signed Fuqua to a pay-or-play deal on the project as a sign of their commitment to him. Which means, whether the film gets made or not, Antoine Fuqua gets money. The hunt for established actors to play the fallen rapper proved fruitless, and now the production is looking for Tupac lookalikes who can be coached to act like him. Just like the government did when Weird “Al” Yankovic was assassinated. Oh, you didn’t know? (LA Times)

The phrase “Rest In Peace” does not apply to hip-hop legend Tupac “2pac” Shakur. After releasing six albums posthumously – six – he’s still got more entertainment to sell.

Shakur wrote a screenplay called Live 2 Tell, which he wrote in prison, that just recently was purchased by NStar Studios. Some inmates beat up smaller guys for cigarettes, Shakur wrote a screenplay. It’s the story of a drug lord trying to go legit, which makes sense. I’d be surprised if it was a period drama that took place during the French revolution or something.

NStar’s Preston Holmes (Tupac: Resurrection) and Ivan Juzang plan to get the film into production this year, along with co-producer Dwight Williams (Hustle and Flow). The budget’s been set at $11 million dollars. The only question now is what will Shakur release next? A novel? Design docs for a video game? A self-powered machine that creates 2pac songs automatically? I guess we’ll know soon enough. (Variety)

Antoine Fuqua Sidesteps Bruce Willis For Tupac Biopic http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/antoine-fuqua-sidesteps-bruce-willis-for-tupac-biopic/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/antoine-fuqua-sidesteps-bruce-willis-for-tupac-biopic/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 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 an 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.
