After months of pump fakes, the long-awaited 2Pac biopic finally has a true release date.
It’s been months since the movie wrapped filming on the film. Delays due to music rights, and other things have pushed it back, but Morgan Creek Productions gave some details on when we will finally see the film built around one of the biggest artists of our generation.
According to The Hollywood Reporter it will be released on Pac’s birthday.
Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights to the Morgan Creek Entertainment film that follows the life of the iconic ’90s rapper, and has set it for release June 16 — the day that would have marked Shakur’s 46th birthday.
Demetrius Shipp Jr. will be playin 2Pac, while Jamal “Gravy” Woolard will return from his role on the Biggie biopic Notorious to play The Notorious B.I.G. Other co-stars include Danai Gurira, Kat Graham, and Dominic L. Santana.
