Training Day director Antoine Fuqua has confirmed that the long-awaited Tupac biopic is back on track and set for a September production date. The film has been stuck in a court battle over rights between production company Morgan Creek and Tupac’s estate, Amaru Entertainment but based on Fuqua’s update it looks like things have been set straight:
“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,” he said. “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.”
“That’s the goal, I want to discover someone new,” he explained. “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.”
