Tupac Biopic "All Eyez On Me"

edited June 14 in The Reason
For those who aren’t in the know, All Eyez on Me experiences a nationwide release on Friday, June 16, 2017. The date holds the utmost significance, for it would have the late rap legend’s 46th birthday.

All Eyez on Me is directed by Benny Boom and showcases newcomer (and Makaveli doppelgänger Demetrius Shipp Jr. in the lead role as Tupac Shakur; The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira as Afeni Shakur; Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as Jada Pinkett; Dominic Santana (Mr. Right) as Suge Knight; Jamal Woolard reprising his role from 2009’s Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious as The Notorious B.I.G.; Keith Robinson (Dreamgirls) as Atron Gregory; Lauren Cohan (The Walking Dead) as Leila Steinberg; and Hill Harper (CSI:NY) as the journalist.

With more than 75 million records sold world (including his All Eyez on Me magnum opus accounting for 10 of those millions) and a historically tragic narrative in Hip Hop that ultimately contributed to his death at just the age of 25, the Tupac biopic definitely has a lot of ground to cover, but early reviews of the film suggest that it’s mission accomplished.

In summer of 2016, The Game proudly proclaimed The Tupac movie is the real deal, shit make that Biggie movie look like a cartoon…I don’t mean no…ay…that’s what it is, homie,” after taking in a screening alongside Program Pictures’ LT Hutton, who also produced the film.

The All Eyez on Me trailer can be seen below.

    The upcoming film based on Tupac Shakur's life is due to begin production in June.

    The announcement of production on the Tupac biopic is becoming something of an annual news article. With that being said, this time it seems to be for real. Producer Randall Emmett has confirmed that the long-awaited film on Tupac Shakur's life will begin filming in June.

    What may have held the film back -- and for good reason -- is earning the rights to use Pac's original music, something that has been detrimental to biopic's past (the infamous Aaliyah Lifetime film among them). Thankfully, we will be hearing Shakur's work in the movie, which will follow him through his early years, to his mainstream success, and ultimately to his untimely death.

    While there have been plenty of documentaries (of varying quality) on the late rapper, this marks the first venture into recreating Shakur on film, and will surely be a tough casting process.

    Watch the full interview with Randall Emmett below.

    Watching movies about people that youve seen so often on tv and feel like you know them and the way they act and talk is awkward most of the times. Like when Will Smith played Ali I was just sittin there like nah

    I'll watch it along with that NWA joint but I dont expect anything more than to be let down... Black Hollywood lazy as fuck at casting it seems, cause they dont even be trying to get people that look similar

    Maybe its just a problem with making biopics with people who have been so over exposed, their real lives were movies.

    Or maybe its just hard to find black folks that look alike and can act... I know if they did a Madonna movie or something any ol white bitch could play her and it'd probably be pretty believable.

    what's the casting looking like?
    just off the top of my head, the obvious things that need to be included is the black panther influence, digital underground, getting shot, going to jail, of course Biggie, Death Row.
    Its gonna be difficult to compact all of that into a movie.
    I think the documentaries on Pac are good enough. I mean we pretty much know everything about him.

    Thats why yall will never get good biopics bc yall so considered w/ what they look like. Get a good unknown actor in there, shave his head, go from there. First thing nggas be concerned about is the exact look and wonder why the movie sucks.

    Denzel dont look like Malcolm x. Dude playin MLK dont look like him (even tho im not a fan of him as an actor, him and the movie are oscar nominated)
