Guess Who's Back? 2Pac Biopic To Begin Filming This Summer!

In 2009, The Notorious B.I.G. received a biopic simply titled Notorious which reenacted the life of the Brooklyn rapper.

2016 will show 2Pac's side of the story as his biopic is scheduled to begin filming in June.

Producer Randall Emmett spoke to Collider to give some details on the anticipated project. Here is what he said you should expect in the movie.

“Kind of set up his beginnings and then go into the key years of leading up to the pinnacle of his success. Those three or four key years of his rise…We want to be real and raw about the things and the life and the gangster life he was involved in growing up in the way he grew up, but we also want to honor the talent. He really was, in my opinion, for sure, one of the greatest talents that ever lived in music and in hip-hop.”

It seems as if the film has scored the right to use some of his original music as well.

“Morgan Creek bought the rights to the music and we share fifty percent of the rights with Morgan Creek,” he said. “So Morgan Creek acquired all the music rights from the estate when they partnered with Tupac’s mother.”
