Director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Shooter, Brooklyn’s Finest) is set to direct the upcoming biopic about rapper Tupac Shakur.
No actor has been tapped to play Tupac yet. “That’s the goal. I want to discover someone new. … I want to discover a lot of new people if I can. Obviously I’m going to have to put some people in it that you know, just because actors have different skills. I want to go to the streets and find him anywhere he might be in the world,” commented Fuqua.
The film centers on the life and legacy of Tupac Shakur, from his emergence as a young artist, through his imprisonment, and last prolific years that catapulted him into the upper echelon of American cultural icons.
